PX-256M3 AHCI problem with Win7 installation

I recently bought a new PX-256M3 SSD and put it in my Lenovo X200t. I did a fresh Win7 install and this is where the problem happened.
When I installed Win7 having SATA in AHCI mode, the Win 7 files can be copied to the drive; however, when windows restarted itself, an error as “Error 2100: HDD0 (Hard disk drive) initialization error (1)” showed up. Only when I installed the system setting SATA to compatibility mode, Win7 can be installed just fine. The same error would pop up if I changed the SATA mode to AHCI after Win7 was installed in the compatibility mode.
The thing is, I have a Western Digital Blue 320GB and a Kingston SSDNow V100 64GB in my Lenovo X200t before, but neither of them had this problem.
Can anyone give me an idea of what's going on?
Thank you!

  1. Did you have both drives hooked up when you had the problem? Try installing Win 7 with just your SSD hooked up in AHCI mode.
  2. I used them one at different times. X200t can only take one drive at a time.
