- Changing from SATA IDE emulation to AHCI on an installed Windows 7, causes Windows 7 to Bluescreen.
sidenote: can’t boot from my SATA CD-ROM drive when it’s in SATA AHCI mode.
- SATA AHCI support? The Windows 7 installer would freeze during the “completing the installation” phase.
Solution: Set SATA to IDE emulation, run the Windows 7 installation. At the first reboot, set the BIOS to AHCI. Windows 7 continues install.
- Partition sizes incorrect.
- External drives not being detected. I’m calling it a Windows “undocumented feature”.
It’s been sweet, once I got past those issues.. Oh, apart from the time it takes for data to be retrieved off my (now working) USB drives.
