    When reading some config recommendations always two different hardware features are mentioned:

    AHCI and ACPI

    What is the difference?
    Both seem to be power-saving-related.

    Is one for hard disks and the other for CPU only?

    Is one in BIOS-only configurable the other from WinOS configurable?
