If the system in question has a SATA drive, then this discussion may illuminate the situation.

The option "Enable write caching on the disk" means the drive's internal cache but not the Windows write cache.  If it's grayed out then the SATA driver does not support 'SCSI pass thru', so Windows cannot send the right commands to the disk.
