Intel X25-M G2 80gb, Steam games freeze with AHCI enabled

I have an Intel X25-M G2 80gb SSD, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I recently enabled AHCI through Windows using the steps in this guide. http://www.ithinkdiff.com/how-to-enable-ahci-in-windows-7-rc-after-installation/



Everything has sped up, and up until now, I wasn't having any problems, so I assumed I had done it properly. Then, I went to fire up GTA IV, which I run through Steam, and it froze before I could even get into the game. I had to CTRL + ALT +DLT to get out of the game.



Remember, I enabled AHCI after the Windows installation. I had heard that it could be problematic, but up until now, everything had been going smoothly.



Any suggestions?
