Windows 7: Getting from IDE to ACHI without BSOD

Getting from IDE to ACHI without BSOD

Hi guys, I'm having problem getting from IDE mode to ACHI. I had the achi mode working in the first place, but I had to do a repair install due to some bad drivers, and now it's back to IDE mode again.

I've tried to change the achi in regedit to 0, where it was and then change to achi mode in bios, but then I get a bsod. Any suggestions?
