Unless I should be looking for something else?
You need to go in and check.
Note: my problems post is quite old and predated SP1.
There is a registry entry corresponding to ACHI enabling or disabling see this tutorial AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista
In addition to the Macrium pe disk you have the Macrium linux boot disk.
Also Hirens Boot CD has a mini XP environment with Macrium built in. It can be used to located and restore Macrium images.
