I think that the problem was related to the Windows 7 updates after SP1.
I didn't experiment to find out the exact problem, as it took so long to create the faulty DVD, that it was quicker to use my original DVD and the SP1 DVD to install Windows 7 the "long" way.
I had a similar problem with my XP CD.
It wouldn't work if I included the XP updates after SP3.
I ended up just creating a CD with SP3 + AHCI drivers
, which worked as expected.
If SP2 is released for Windows 7, I might spend some time experimenting to find out exactly what happened (I can't be bothered now).
I have backup initial install images of my operating systems, so I won't need to do a total reinstall.
