    Intel DP43TF and AHCI

      I recently purchased an Intel DP43TF motherboard (P43 northbridge/ICH10  southbridge). I will be using this motherboard with 64-bit Windows 7.  For some reason I cannot get Windows 7 to install if AHCI support is  enabled. If I do an EFI install of 64-bit Windows 7 the computer reboots  continuously. If I try to do a traditional BIOS install of 64-bit  Windows 7 with AHCI enabled I keep getting an error message from Windows  stating the computer rebooted unexpectedly whenever I boot from the  hard disk. I have an Intel X25-M 80GB SSD so I absolutely must have AHCI  enabled so I get TRIM support. The motherboard has the latest BIOS  version NBG4310H.86A.0104.2010.0122.1624 that was released on January  22, 2010.
