  1. So whats the problem?

    It works or not?
  2. Did it boot to desktop?
  3. Did you change to AHCI mode before or after installing the O/S? It has to be set before the O/S is installed or else you need to: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/61869-ahci-enable-windows-7-vista.html

    ok so now its working, i did a full install with ahci mode on in bios,

    but shouldnt my drivers be scsi not stupid sata. I WANT MY SCSI DRIVERS BACK LIKE THEY USED TO.
  5. actually i went to the amd website and installed optional drivers package. and it had way better updated drivers. seems like asus is done supporting this motherboard.

    but what i did was downloaded from here http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/pages/integrated_win7-64.aspx#2

    chipset drivers and raid drivers.
    but the raid drivers on a usb flash drive.
    restarted to bios.
    set sata ports to raid instead of ahci.
    booted my windows 7 64bit ultimate disk.
    loaded the raid drivers from my usb.
    installed windows.
    and walla.
