At times, under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, there are listed several channels + one Intel SATA/AHCI controller of some sort. At other times, when installing the latest SATA/AHCI controller driver package on top of this listing, all the IDE ATA/ATAPI controller channels disappear, with only the Intel SATA/AHCI controller remaining.
Why is this? There is still only one SATA-disk installed, thus there should still be available ATA channels listed. Or am I wrong?
Could someone give me a walkthrough of IDE ATA/ATAPI listings behaviour related to what mentioned above?
Thank you in advance for any reply!

When I install by right clicking the ata channel and select the driver manually it only updates that one channel and leaves the rest showing as ata channel 0 etc . If I install using the .exe instead, it shows only that one channel after. No other channels.
The BIOS-setting is always set to AHCI, no matter what result.
