    Hello everyone!

    I have a home built computer with a gigabyte motherboard. When I try to install Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer it is very slow, and says that my AHCI hdd is not compatible.:( I believe this may be a problem with the driver because I could only find one for Windows XP. I have tried running SATA in IDE mode only to get errors later in the installation. Is there a way to get around this?

    Here are my specs:

    Ga-ep46-ud3r with latest bios
    SATA maxtor hdd controlled with AHCI
    2x4gb ram
    Intel pentium quad core
    Pny geforce gt 630 2gb graphics card
    SAMSUNG DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL - OEM also controlled by AHCI
    I am using a Windows Vista Ultimate DVD that I burned form the web.

    I have been able to install at least XP on my computer by slipstreaming the AHCI into the installation cd using nLite so now I will mark this as solved.
