Comment (by Luposian):

 Upon searching, high and low, in the BIOS of my Acer Aspire X1200 desktop,
 there is absolutely NO option for changing the controller mode.  It is
 what it is and that seems to be about it.

 However, it DOES boot on my Acer Aspire 5560-7414 laptop (which uses an
 AMD A6-3420M CPU, no less), when I change the controller mode from AHCI to
 IDE.  So, there is further proof what you were told is correct about the
 controller type switch and that Haiku (at least the 64-bit version) CAN
 work with that CPU type, too (which was an issue with my Gateway NV55S09u
 laptop (which I no longer own)).

 Funny thing is Windows 7 has utterly NO clue how to deal with the
 controller switch from AHCI to IDE and thinks something is wrong and CAN'T
 fix it (HA!).  Switching back to AHCI "fixed" everything though...

 But this ticket isn't about my laptop nor Windows, it's about my Acer
 Aspire X1200 desktop not booting in AHCI mode and no IDE mode is
 available, so... where do we go from here?

 My assumption is that recompiling Haiku's AHCI driver for "Haiku64", would
 be the logical next step, but... is it?
