comment Boot Vista x64 with both ICH8 and ICH10 AHCI support
I'd like to cross-virtualize Windows and Linux, meaning, boot into Windows and access my Linux install (which I have working) and boot into Linux and access my Windows side. I need to add support for both ICH8 and ICH10 because my hardware has an ICH10 chipset and VirtualBox uses ICH8 emulation. As for ICH8 being a completely separate driver, picking apart the INFs of ICH10 drivers downloaded from Intel, they appear to still support ICH8. But clearly I'm missing something.

comment Boot Vista x64 with both ICH8 and ICH10 AHCI support
When ICH10 is in AHCI mode, Vista boots. When ICH10 is in RAID mode, it boots. When I use ICH8 in AHCI mode it no longer boots and dies with a STOP 7B BSOD. My hypothesis is that I should be able to add support for the ICH8 in AHCI mode because I can boot my ICH10 in both AHCI and RAID mode, which appear as different mass storage devices to the OS.

I haven't contacted Dell support, but I find that they will continue to display "no signal" for >30 minutes.

comment Boot Vista x64 with both ICH8 and ICH10 AHCI support
If this is true, then why am I able to switch the ICH10 controller from AHCI mode to RAID mode and still boot? The AHCI controller and RAID controllers have different PnP ids (therefore are seen differently by the OS) even though they use the same iaStor.sys as the driver. I don't mean to discount your answer, thanks for your help!
