Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

You need to go here and choose the correct revision of your board;

GIGABYTE - Search

When you have found it you need to go to the download section, This is an example, I don't know what revision your board is;

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM2+ - GA-MA78GM-S2H (rev. 2.x)

download the correct drivers and install them according to the instructions given.

These instructions are also in your motherboard handbook. Unless you install the correct drivers you can not install AHCI or RAID setups, and the system
defaults to native IDE.

If you try to setup AHCI or RAID in the BIOS without the drivers the machine will not boot until the BIOS is reset to the default value for the installed drives. The drivers must be pre-installed from a floppy disc or similar;

You need to enable AHCI in windows first, than enable AHCI in BIOS.

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

This is correct, set the BIOS back to default then use the tutorial and then set the BIOS to AHCI if you choose to do so; windows 7 should then install the correct drivers for you at the next reboot.
