Cannot change from IDE to AHCI, i still get the BSOD even after i change the registry key's to 0. I even used the microsoft script and it still does the same. Any way of changing to AHCI without uninstalling W7?

I have Win 7 x64
My laptop is Acer Aspire 5750g
The harddisk is an Hitachi HTS 547575


Thanks in advance

Hi,

Check your sata drivers. Older AMD driver cause BSOD. Download newest AMD AHCI driver and install.

Check the date of your amd sata drivers (2011 or 2012?) - mine did not update with the installation so did not fix the problem.

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/rai...

Go to Driver manager, left click IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
At the top click Actions - Add legacy controllers

Install drivers manually - select IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers - have disk..

select C:\AMD\Support\13-1_vista_win7_win8_32-64_sb\Packages\Drivers\SBDrv\SB7xx\AHCI\W764A

amd_sata.inf

you will get an ! mark in Device manager but that is okay.

Restart- still in IDE mode.

Drivers will update.


Restart in AHCI mode!!

There will now be 2 copies of AMD SATA Controller - one working properly!!

Please post to other forums as I spent 2 night finding this out.


Cheers,

Jon
