A web search led to the solution and now I have the AMD AHCI driver working with the AMD SB700 chipset.

The solution was provided by linhtinh on the AMD forum and involves correcting an error in the amd_sata.inf file. The line below should not begin with a semi-colon.

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

Delete the semi-colon, save the modified INF file and install the unsigned driver from Device Manager.

For how to install an unsigned driver, see here

The modified driver must be installed from Device Manager in the following manner. Right click, update driver software, browse my computer for driver software, let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer then browse to the correct folder and install. Reboot and done.
