    ICH9 + AHCI = timeout issue

    gechu

      When I enable AHCI in Windows 7 and install the latest chipset drivers, I get a system freeze for about 3000 seconds and then I see a "timeout" notification in the Event Viewer that says "windows error reporting service" has crashed.

       

      I´ve read that the ICH9 controller isn´t AHCI compatibe, but that can´t be true because I´ve managed to run other OS:es than Windows in AHCI mode. This is setup:

       

      Gigabyte P34-DS3

      Intel ICH9

      latest BIOS

      AHCI BIOS 1.2.0E (I think)

      Samsung SATA HD753LJ 750gb

      tried latest chipset driver

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Thanks, Erik
