I cloned my old drive to a new ssd, with windows 7 already installed. I then made the proper registry edits to enable me to turn on ahci. After I reboot, make the changes in bios, my system is getting hung up in the verifying dmi pool data screen. My mobo is a gigabyte EP45-UD3P. Any ideas?

Do you think you have have done anything wrong in the registry? If you can properly boot up, try fixing those changes. Also, does your configuration support ahci??

All I did in the registry was change msahci from 3 to 0. What do you mean by configuration? Like, what channel the drive is?

If your old Win7 installation was IDE, it probably isn't recognizing the AHCI mode now.

The installation was IDE, but I have read multiple guides where you can activate ahci mode by making a simple change in the registry, then turning on achi in the BIOS. I know this has worked for people, but I have not heard of anyone getting stuck at the verifying data screen.

I had the same issue which I was able to solve:

After turning AHCI on, my boot was stuck on "Verifying DMI".
After some tinkering, I found out that the "Order of Hard Drives" in the BIOS changed - Now the external USB drive was first.

After changing the order back and setting the primary Windows HD as the first boot drive, everything started working correctly.
