I just got a 990fx sabertooth. When I plugged my ssd up with windows 7 64bit I get to the boot screen and see the windows logo load up and then it brings me to a windows recovery error. I took the SSD and put it in a spare pc and it booted the os perfectly. I updated the bios on the sabertooth and it still wont boot the os on the ssd properly. The ssd is a new kingston sv300s 240gb. I ve tried to unplug all usb items and everything not needed from the sabertooth and the results are the same. I also tried every single sata port on the board and the results are the same.

You must reinstall windows 7 on your new motherboard as it consists of new drivers and such that it needed from your os. Your old os recognizes drivers from your old motherboard thats why it doesnt boot properly.

You cant run that windows install on that new chipset you need to reinstall windows on the ssd when you plug it into the 990fx sabertooth.

This is correct. The Sabertooth also has two SATA controllers, one AMD with RAID support and there are two white ones. You could try one or the other.

Either way, you will want to reinstall Windows, the drivers are completely different and it's just going to crash. You can't transfer a formatted HD from one system to another.

The SSD is from a pc that used 890 chipset motherboard. I put it in a back up rig with 990 chipset gigabyte board and it booted up fine. But both of those boards where gigabyte. Would that matter at all?

It's just not the same hardware. I call it a "Dirty Install" and the Windows file system will corrupt shortly afterward.
Backup your files to a second HD and format, than put your files back. It's the only option.

Go into Bios in Sata settings and change the IDE to AHCI.. Maybe it will help..
