    Now which OS is your friend installing? We need to install with 2GB or less on some Windows programs. After the SP2 or SP3 update then install the other 2GB of ram.

    Windows XP SP2 and a slipstreamed disk of it with the SATA driver included. I also think we've tried booting with only one sick of ram, I'm not sure that we've tried installing. We're about to try installing Windows 7 RC 1 to eliminate any possibility of SATA/AHCI driver problems. If it doesn't boot with Windows 7 RC 1, we're going to try an old IDE drive that has Windows XP already installed, and see if it boots. If both do not work we'll update the BIOS and proceed with any suggestions you have.

    Good. I know what slipstreaming is but never performed it because I use the XP with SP2on it with a floppy with the RAID drivers and perform the F6 option at setup. The bios settings have to be set first. Windows xp sp2 should install with 4GB and the F6 option if RAID or AHCI drivers are needed. Then upgrade to Windows 7. This would be the better way. You will want to get the memory settings right first though.

    The Windows 7 installer could not see his HDD, and asked for the SATA/Mass Storage driver. Which we couldn't provide, even with the driver on his Flash drive and with his motherboard driver CD. Though while searching for the driver it does show his Local Disk C, the hell? The IDE drive just BSOD immediately on start up.

    We've also been getting a "Verify DMI Pool Data" error along with the "Disk Read Error". We've yet to update the BIOS or play much with it beyond the AHCI settings.

    He has a single SATA HDD. The IDE drive is from his old PC, we were just using it to see if it would boot. It's just a single HDD, no RAID0.

    I think we'll start with the BIOS later tonight, when he's done with his school work, thanks.

    He wants to set hard drive connector on SATA2_0 Go into bios and set.
    Settings should be set in bios.

    SATA2_0 physically on the motherboard? It's been set, we've also tried setting it in SATA2_1, with no results.

    We've also tried Native IDE and AHCI, with multiple installs.

    OK, well the solution to my issue in the end was to get the RAM timimgs and voltages right.
    Turned out the OCZ memory wanted 1.8v pushed to it (as it would appear a lot of OCZ mem does) and the stock Gigabyte pushes on this board is 1.5, the timings also had to be tweaked as the motherboard wasn't reading the right ones for my memory.
    I would suggest popping over to the OCZ forum and seeing if you can find some recommended voltages and timings. for these sticks, before pointing finger at board.
    I know I was pulling my hair out on this setup, and screaming at the board about how crap it was, until I found these timings, now it's rock solid.
    Try here:
    Support Question OCZ3P16004GK + GA-MA790XT-UD4P = No Post? - OCZ Forum

    Different board but the memory timings and voltages would be the same.
    Also run memtest once set and check it's stable.

    For the install side using AHCI, there's been a lot of talk about:
    1. setting the BIOS to AHCI
    2. plug the hard drive you want to install the os on in a NON-AHCI SATA port
    3. Start Win 7 install and add AHCI drivers (vista 64 if Win7 64)
    4. Install OS
    5. then plug the drive with the OS on into one of the AHCI enabled SATA ports.

    Then it should all be good.
    But I'd definately recommend the Mem timing and voltage check after clearing CMOS and loading optimized defaults. As i said it wouldve saved me hours of trying to figure out something that wasn't!!
