    Legacy Mood: For older operating systems like win 98/95 and some linux version. Slower Performance.
    Native Mood: For latest operating systems including Win XP. Faster Performance.
    AHCI Mood: Supported by only vista and win 7, Make your SATA devices act like a USB device also support hot plug and play so you can add or remove a SATA device without rebooting ur system. Also a slight better performance but higher boot up time. Warning: You will need a fresh OS install after enabling this feature, also must install Intel INF utility.

    For your case: you can completely disable legacy mood and keep native mood, plus if you can afford a fresh install, go for AHCI.

    So? you can see that normally its not possible to use XP with AHCI.Sobai to r XP cd te AHCI driver ad kore install korte parbe na, tasara there are some other compatibility issue which might cause problem in xp environment. Thats why AHCI is not XP suggested.
    Ami Banglalink er new PC gulate dekhsi (ora sob dell kinse eibar), XP er cd te sob necessary software driver built in kora plus Intel INF driver and matrix storage controller, oder PC gula AHCI kora. So the point is, XP doesnt support AHCI by default but you can make it work if you are lucky to have compatibility green signal
