I BSOD'd upon boot after this. Right as the orbs for the Windows Loading Screen showed up, quick blip of a blue screen and restarted by itself.

Had to boot into my 'last known good configuration'.

I'm pondering over the possibility that its because my BIOS doesn't have the option to switch from something like IDE to AHCI.

Now you'll need to restart the PC and go into the BIOS and enable AHCI; when Windows boots up it will finish installing the AHCI drivers.
Enable AHCI ?, but I can't find it in my BIOS.
