Windows 7: WIN7-I can't complete win7 installation in AHCI.

WIN7-I can't complete win7 installation in AHCI.

Hey guys,

I have this crucial m4 128gb 6gb/s for over a month. I had it running well, with the firmware up to date til i managed to clean my computer. Looks like the boot manager didn't like that i switch moved two mechanical drive in different port. the boot manager was probably on them so thats why win7 was tripping and freezing.

So i unplugged the two mechanical drive, and did a fresh install of win7. I have a gigabyte x58-ud3r with 9128 marvell chip on on my 6/7 gSATA port. When i get the ssd, i put the ICH10 in AHCI and the gSATA port as well, and the installation completed.

Now, it just dont work. win7 will copy the files, decompress them and then when it reboot it will hangs at the logo screen and do nothing for like 30 min. I tried switching the port 6/7 in IDE, and windows installation just complete. Try to switch it back once win7 is install and it will hang on at the logo screen. The win7 registry key for ahci is set to 0 like it should be, but i can't boot win7 when its set to ahci in the bios.

I tried the fresh installation 3 times. I have load the marvell driver from my mobo cd with the partionning tool in win7 installation, and now it says what the installation can't update the registry after decompressing the files and it cancels the installation.

I've been on this for two days and it gives me serious headache. please guys, where do i start to make this ssd works like it was.
