    64bit Clean Install but BSOD on reboot after AMD AHCI Driv

    I hope someone here has a solution to my problem.

    I did a clean install of Win 8 Pro 64bit to a computer with an AMD780G chipset. Everything went smoothly until I tried to update to the AMD SB AHCI driver. The AMD driver seemed to install without error but on the reboot there was a BSOD.

    People who run AMD systems with the 700 series south bridge might be familiar with previous problems with the AMD AHCI driver when installing Windows 7 where a line in the amd_sata.inf file had to be edited to prevent a BSOD. I thought I might be dealing with the same problem but that file doesn't seem to have that same error.

    I've been searching here and with Google but I haven't stumbled across a solution so far.

    Edit: After running AMD's installer a log is generated that reports successful installation of the AHCI driver but with the BIOS set to AHCI there is a BSOD. Switching the BIOS to IDE allows the computer to boot.
