Something is wrong and I have no clue what can it be...
I've first enabled AHCI without XP reinstall.
Worked just fine for a while but about 1 week ago, one morning, my computer was displaying a black screen with the "A read disk error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.".
After getting this error 3-4 times i've thought that it may be caused by the AHCI install without reinstalling XP so I did reinstall XP and enabled AHCI with the F6 method. I also installed JMicron controller (JMB36x - latest WHQL) with the F6 method.
So, fresh XP, AHCI enabled using F6, clean system and the error keeps showing.
I've googled a lot for this problem but seems that no one has a "solving" for this one.
Interesting thing, as i've observed till now, is that i don't get this error when i boot but just if my system is idle for some time.
If i work on the machine it doesn't crash even if i use HDDs a lot.
EX: I've left Norton 360 scanning all my drives but in the morning the error was on the screen again.
I've checked in the System Tools > Event Viewer > System and according to my "calculations" the error showed after Norton 360 finished scanning and my system was most probably idle.
Does anyone have any clue about this problem?

Another strange thing:
On this new XP/AHCI install, using a Western Digital HDD Tool it says that my HDDs are okay - no error (same as Check Disk showed) but it shows my Seagate (SATA I) HDDs as being IDE and only the WD HDD (SATA II) as being SATA...
