Bought an SSD, so I reinstalled my OS yesterday.  I installed the chipset driver from AMD and restarted.  Upon restarting, a blue screen (BSOD) would pop up for less than a second, then Windows Startup Recovery would start and request to Restore to a previous point.  Restoring fixed the problem.  I tried "Run as Admin" with the same results.  Have not tried my mobo mfr drivers yet (as they are quite old).  Any suggestions? Also, from what I've read the AMD AHCI driver is not preferred.  Still the case?  Everything seems to be running OK without the chipset drivers installed currently.  Thanks.

These are the drivers I tried to install from AMD.

No overclocking.

I know that some of the SB750 chipset motherboards have a problem with recent AMD AHCI drivers - these set the AMDsatapmdisabled parameter to an incompatible value  - see http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?278905-possible-problem-sb750-12.1-ahci-driver-bsod-%28and-11.12-revert-workaround%29 . Possibly this issue applies for other SB700 chipsets

Thanks a million!  The AMD AHCI driver installed.

FYI, in comparison to the default Microsoft AHCI driver, my read speeds decreased but write speeds increased.  The overall result is unfortunately slightly decreased performance.  So it looks like I'll be reverting back to the default driver.

Thanks for the help!

Yes the AHCI the problem exists for me since 12.1

W7 solution:

Open amd_sata.inf

HKR, "Parameters\Device","AmdSataPMDisabled",%REG_DWORD%, 0

change to

HKR, "Parameters\Device","AmdSataPMDisabled",%REG_DWORD%, 0xFF

(add xFF)

Run setup.exe

 

W8 solution:

I recently retired a 770 based board (M4A77D) and it was never a problem with Windows XP, Vista, 7 or even 8.
