windows 7 startup problem in sata compatibility mode

i bought a new laptop toshiba satellite os was installed in it.i got installed windows 7.but later when i tried to install windows 8,i was unable to install it.then i checked the user manual which came along with the said

[when installing an operating system other than microsoft windows vista and windows 7,please follow the steps power button and the f2 key advanced(->system configuration) compatibility mode for SATA controller mode f10

you will be then able to boot from the ODD.]

i did as it is said...but windows 8 is not booting from the dvd even after i did as it is told.
and when i tried to start windows 7 is having startup shows blue screen and shuts off.

so i changed the bios settings to AHCI mode and 7 is running to make windows 7 run in controlller mode??
