nope, I installed latest via MSI Liveupdate 5, driver version 13.250.26 and tried install driver from MSI site too.  Both crashed OS. These packages includes the same version of SATA Driver - 1.3.001.0220

It did the same for me when I updated to the lasted driver windows would  just try to load but could not and it only happes when I update to the lastest Chip driver and i know it is the AHCI driver cause when i  press F8 to boot up the computer and go in to last known configuration it boots up but when i updated to the lasted driver on AMD website it messed up the AHCI driver controller  so there is a problem with the driver that cause conflict with the AHCI controller.  first time  that happen i did a Reinstall but i forgot oh what about i try to press F8 and go into last known good configuration lol and that work...

My Mainboard Model  880GM-LE FX Chip set

I had the same issue with the AHCI driver supplied as part of the version 14.9 chipset driver package. Windows 7 64-bit went into an endless bootloop just as described above.  The driver in the version 12.1 chipset package works just fine.  I reported this to AMD in a problem report.

The easy way to get back to whatever previous driver you were using is to go into your BIOS settings, set the SATA mode to IDE, boot up and do a system restore to an appropriate point before you installed the bad driver, then you can set your SATA mode back to AHCI.

It is safe to install the 14.9 chipset driver package only if you use CUSTOM mode and UNCHECK the AHCI driver.

Glad to help; glad it worked for you! Yes, AMD has some debugging to do. I hope they will let us know when a new "clean" driver is available...
