 +====== SATA ======
 +MINIX 3 can use SATA hard drives in native mode, which is also called AHCI mode. This option is supported from MINIX 3.2.1 pre-releases onward.
 +===== Setup =====
 +To enable SATA, set the BIOS to use native/AHCI mode for the hard drive.
 +Then, choose this boot option during installation:​
 +Regular MINIX 3 (with AHCI)
 +To enable this for an installed system, add //​ahci=yes//​ to a menu entry in ///​boot.conf//​. ​
 +===== Potential Problems =====
 +When using SATA in VirtualBox, consecutive restarts might not find the installer CD. To fix this, shutdown MINIX 3 and close the VirtualBox VM. This will erase any temporary data that may be causing the problem.
 +===== Feedback =====
 +Please [[http://​​group/​minix3|let us know]] about your [[:​gettinghelp|experience]].
