  1. I looked at that same exact tutorial, but it doesn't seem to work with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. I couldn't get it to work. The first problem seems to be that the windows registry settings have changed in Windows 8. Open your Windows registry editor and make sure “Start” Value in the following keys are set to 0. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Iastor On Windows 8, if you go into "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services" there is no "Msahci" folder. It doesn't exist. There is no "Iastor" folder either. There is only "IastorV" folder, but that's it. It seems that Microsoft changed the AHCI folder names/locations in Windows 8. So the old tutorials don't work with Windows 8. There doesn't seem to be an updated working step-by-step tutorial for getting AHCI running in Windows 8 on a 2008 Mac Pro. The AHCI Enabler no longer works, and I tried doing everything the manual way (by following that other tutorial) but that tutorial seems to only work with Windows 7, and not Windows 8 (the registry folders for AHCI have changed in Windows 8). There doesn't seem to be an updated tutorial (or updated/working AHCI Enabler) that works under 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. Hopefully maybe John Socks can update the AHCI Enabler, and help us get it working again for 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. Yes, I have OS X 10.9 Mavericks on a 1TB hard drive. I have Windows 8 Pro installed on a second 2TB hard drive. They are on separate hard drives. I was able to get everything working (years ago) when I was running OS X 10.5 Leopard and Windows Vista. I also managed to get it working under 10.6 Snow Leopard and Windows 7. I just can't seem to get it working with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. Windows 8 seems to have changed the registry file/folder locations (for AHCI) and the AHCI Enabler hasn't been updated since 2010 and doesn't seem to work properly with OS X 10.9 Mavericks (and//or Windows 8).
  2. AHCI Enabler stopped working. It no longer works with Windows 8 or OS X 10.9 Mavericks. I've tried it several times, and several users have all tried using it on OS X 10.9 Mavericks with Windows 8, and it seems that the AHCI Enabler is broken and hasn't been updated to work with Windows 8 and OS X 10.9 Mavericks. All we can do is wait for someone to update the AHCI Enabler, and hopefully get it working again. Yes, I just get the same exact grayed out button that you (and everyone else) seems to be getting with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. It's broken. It's been broken for a few months now (ever since Windows 8 and OS X 10.9 Mavericks was released) I've been trying to get AHCI working in Windows 8 as well, but haven't had any luck. The AHCI enabler doesn't seem to work anymore. Also, I'm not sure where to get AHCI drivers for Windows 8 (for the 2008 Apple Mac Pro). Hookly, I'm in the same exact situation. The AHCI Enabler doesn't work anymore. I'm running OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and running Windows 8 Pro (64-bit) and I get the same exact error. AHCI Enabler is not working under OS X 10.9 Mavericks and doesn't seem to work with Windows 8 Pro. (Or at least it doesn't work on the 2008 Apple Mac Pro with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8). I've spent a few days/weeks/months working on it, and can't seem to get it to work. Yes, I would love to get my SATA Blu-Ray drive working under Windows, but the AHCI Enabler seems to definitely be broken and no longer works. Or at least it doesn't work on the 2008 Apple Mac Pro. I have an identical system to yours, and I'm getting the same exact error/problem. > The modified MBR prevents Windows from booting. > > A disk read error occurred. Press ctrl+alt+del to restart. I get that same exact error/problem with Windows 8. The modified MBR prevents Windows 8 from booting, and yes I get that same exact "A Disk read error occurred. Press ctrl-alt-del to restart. The AHCI Enabler doesn't seem to work with OS X 10.9 Mavericks or Windows 8. I'm not sure how to get it fixed, or if someone can update the AHCH Enabler to get it working again. I have the exact same system that you have (a 2008 Apple Mac Pro) and it doesn't seem to be working on the 2008 Apple Mac Pro. > The modified MBR prevents Windows from booting. I'm having the same exact problem, not exactly sure how to get it working or how to get it fixed. > Could it be that Mavericks made changes to EFI, GUID, or MBR? Maybe. I'm not exactly sure what happened or why it no longer works on a 2008 Apple Mac Pro with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and/or Windows 8. Mavericks must have done something to get it to stop working. Hopefully this can be fixed fairly soon, and hopefully someone can get the AHCI Enabler working again for OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. I believe John Sock is the author of the AHCI Enabler, hopefully he can post an updated version of it, that works with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8 (and works on the 2008 Apple Mac Pro). That old beta version from 2010 used to work, but it no longer works anymore with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. Also does anyone have the AHCI Intel drivers for the 2008 Apple Mac Pro? I checked Intel's website, and they seemed to have moved things around, and I can't seem to find the AHCI Intel drivers anymore. Would anyone be willing to create/update the tutorial, and write a new/updated version for using the AHCI Enabler on OS X 10.9 Mavericks with Windows 8 (64-bit)? [i have a 2008 Apple Mac Pro and would love to help, but I can't seem to get it working myself...]
  3. Yes, I've just disabled gatekeeper. ("Allow apps downloaded from: ANYWHERE") I'm able to run the "AHCI Enabler BETA" now, but I'm not sure if I have a very old version of the AHCI Enabler App (2010?) and if a newer version exists? The old version that I am using, doesn't seem to recognize my Windows 8 Version (Windows 8 Professional 64-bit). For Windows Version is says: "Unknown". The only NTFS Volumes found are "disk0s1 (BOOTCAMP)" Disk To Modify: /dev/disk0 Windows Version: Unknown Chipset: Intel ESB2 AHCI But I can't click the "Modify" button because it's grayed out. Any ideas as to what I can do/try next? Is there a new/updated version of the AHCI Enabler Beta? (something newer than 2010?) Thank-you, Mark
  4. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To get around the following error: "AHCI Enabler" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. I did the following: 1) Right-click (or control-click) AHCI Enabler application and choose "Open". 2) Click the "Open" button at the next dialog warning to launch the app anyway. This seems to be a "Gatekeeper" security error in OS X 10.9 Mavericks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I have a 2008 Apple Mac Pro (3,1) and I'm trying to use all 6 SATA ports in Windows 8. Is there an updated version of the AHCI Enabler App that works properly with OSX 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8 Pro (64-bit)? After running the AHCI Enabler (Beta), it shows the following NTFS Volumes found: disk0s1 (BOOTCAMP) Disk To Modify: /dev/disk0 (grayed out) Windows Version: Unknown (I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64-bit) Chipset: Intel ESB2 AHCI I am unable to click the "Modify" button, because it's grayed out, and at the top it says "Unable To Locate Code Block". What do I do now? How do I get this AHCI Enabler working with Windows 8? The AHCI Enabler App doesn't seem to recognize the Windows Version (Windows 8). It says "Unknown" for the Windows Version, and it doesn't allow me to click the "Modify" button (the modify button is grayed out). Does the AHCI Enabler not work properly with Windows 8? After I select "disk0s1 (BOOTCAMP)" as the NTFS volume, why can't I click the "Modify" button? Why does it say "Unable To Locate Code Block"? How do I get this AHCI Enabler app to properly modify my Windows 8 MBR to enable AHCI? Is there an updated version of this tool that recognizes Windows 8 and works properly with Windows 8 version? Thank-you, Mark
  5. I tried using the AHCI Enabler.dmg file, but it won't work in Mavericks 10.9 I keep getting the following error: "AHCI Enabler" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. I have a 2008 Apple Mac Pro (3,1) running OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Windows 8. My first hard drive has OS X 10.9 Mavericks on it. My second SATA hard drive has Windows 8 on it. I installed a SATA Blu-Ray burner (in one of the DVD-drive slots) and connected it to a SATA port on the motherboard. I need to enable AHCI in order to get the Blu-Ray burner to work properly in Windows 8. Is there any way that I can run the AHCI Enabler.dmg file, and why am I getting the "unidentified developer" error anytime I try to open/run the AHCI Enabler.dmg file?
