I got it working for my friend!
Basically do this:
- Click Start
- In the Start menu, type Device Manager, hit Enter
- Click "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers"
- AMD SATA Controller, right click and click "Properties"
- Go to the "Driver" tab
- Click "Update Driver"
- Click "Browse my Computer"
- Click "Let me pick"
- You will see the option to choose "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller", click this and click "Next" and let it install
- Then reboot and install the new firmware for your drive.
