Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
 
 

Ok guys, I have managed to switch it to IDE instead of AHCI in BIOS, it's working fine now, restarted a couple of times and it's fine! Also computer seems to boot a bit faster as well. I would like to say thanks to Adrian and Antman for being really helpful. Thanks for spending time to help me.

Regards,
ADT

I have the exact same problem with ADT. How exactly do I switch to IDE instead of AHCI in BIOS? I tried looking for that option in BIOS but I just can't seem to find it.

Much help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome to Windows 7 Forums.
Marco, access your bios and look for storage devices, use page up, page down to access your drives.
Use the plus or minus key to change options. Attached is a screen shot for you to review,

Install the intel matrix storage manager -
You will find it at the intel site - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx
Select chipsets - laptop chipsets - intel mobile 965 express chipset family - select drivers (27) (under download type -skip OS's)- scroll down to and select intel(R) matrix storage manager 8.9.0.1023 - download and install.

This should work please post back if does or doesnt work.
