Windows 7: BSOD 0x7B if I update the driver for Standard AHCI 1.0 SATA controller

26 Dec 2017   #11

Windows 7 Professional x86 SP1

IŽll be delighted:
System Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
System Model B85M-D3H

Or GA-B85M-D3H. ver. 1.0

So far with the current drivers works "fine", weird slow downs while browsing contents on the web.

guys I have found the answer...

Remember the bsod? well, the driver that gigabyte provides DOESNŽT work with that motherboard, because the driver the OEM supplies is for chipsets that ALSO have RAID, my chipset just has IDE and AHCI, but not RAID.

I formatted and reinstalled Windows on x64 version and during installation I loaded the driver, on reboot it gave me a bsod.

The solution was to install normally (using the USB 2.0 ports btw) and later install the intel chipset software, it automatically installed the AHCI driver that I need it without the bsod. What are the odds that the driver supplied from the OEM doesnŽt work on their products because the have a botched chipset that it should have also raid?


Yes, I now noticed that I had already the drivers from the beginning of the whole post...

God damm you Murphy...
