Workaround for Vista BSOD when setting SATA drive frm AHCI to standard when trying to setup Dual Boot w/XP

Workaround for Vista BSOD when setting SATA drive frm AHCI to standard when trying to setup Dual Boot w/XP

I was trying to setup a friends laptop to dual boot vista/xp like mine. However after some searching, I found that his BIOS has his SATA setup to use AHCI mode. If I change that back to legacy or normal, which ever it was, Vista will BSOD on us. My question is if I run the repair function from Vista, do you think this will resolve the BSOD Vista gets when trying to run from the non-AHCI enabled SATA? Or am I stuck with having to make a slip-streamed XP install and try to get the AHCI drivers on the disk for XP?
