I have the Intel X25-M 80GB drive.
It will only run in IDE mode on my system. If I change to AHCI it BSOD just as soon as the Windows Logo page ends right before the normal windows screen.

If you didn't do a fresh install onto the SSD, then yes, your BSoD is a result of Windows being unable to load the appropriate AHCI drivers.

You can resolve this issue by manually installing the appropriate AHCI drives, but you have to be careful which ones you install. You would basically be manually overriding the SATA drivers in Windows Device Manager with AHCI drivers.

I'm using windows 7, and had to do some regedit to have it enabled http://www.overclock.net/hard-drives...de-ahci-2.html

Thanks alot, I asked op to make this post as I've been studying for exams all night. Yesterday when I got my ssd in the mail, although used it was wiped clean. I did the firmware upgrade and then did a fresh x64 install. I have same problem as op, which should I try first: upping the voltage or the regedit trick?

Never heard of that one.

Change that one little registry entry and windows should automatically recognize your chipset. Then before you restart you can install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...17882&lang=eng and it will update pretty much all the drivers etc.

Now If I can just find out how to manually run TRIM

Manually run TRIM on xp? Windows 7 has Trim built in I believe.
