    Before I installed W7, I had the drive plugged into the blue ports, but the system would not boot at all with the drive plugged in there, hence the reason I could not install. When it got to the stage where it detects drives it simply hung. No matter what I did I could not remedy this. Tried different cables, still the same.

    That was with a blank drive before even installing W7. No matter what I did, clear cmos etc, always the same.

    Plugged it into the white ports and all was fine. Installed without a hitch and has been fine ever since.

    I dont want to clear the drive to hit the exact same issue again. Does anybody have a link for the registry tweak so that I can try it first? I'll attempt another install as a last resort.

    Thanks for that.

    The setting does not need changing as it is already showing as 0.

    I just tried changing the boot order to boot from another HDD with the SSD plugged into a blue port, and still the same happens.....system hangs when it tries to detect the drive. This is before W7 even starts to load.

    I unplugged the SSD and booted from my other HDD into W7. That drive is also AHCI enabled so I hot-plugged the SSD into the PC and it detected it straight away. I can see/access all the files on it as well.

    The problem is definitely before W7 installs. The mobo simply cannot see the drive and freezes when it tries to detect it.

    Hopefully somebody will have a solution? I suspect it is a mobo driver problem?

    What could be causing this?

    It is the AHCI/sata (Intel) driver that is trying to see the SDD, so how/which should I reinstall?

    ========================================

    check if your mobo is actually this:
    GA-EX58-UD5 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver

    if so, install the Intel SATA RAID Driver for your operating system:

    if it is XP 32 bit:



    <table width="100%" bgcolor="#c8c8c8" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="1"><tbody><tr><td align="center" bgcolor="#f6f6f6">2009/08/11</td><td bgcolor="#ffffff">Intel SATA RAID Driver
    Download from :
    Asia Asia(China) America Europe Europe(Russia) : ftp / http</td><td bgcolor="#ffffff">8.9.0.1023</td><td align="right" bgcolor="#ffffff">13.10 MB</td></tr></tbody></table>


    if it is not XP 32 bit , find, download, and install the one that matches your situation.

    That's what solved my case, when I wanted AHCI for my drive after everything was OK as IDE, on a GA-EX58-UD3R (ver 1.6)

    please note the OP statement

    "... having issues getting the intel (blue) sata ports to work with my Crucial 64gb SSD......works 100% ok in the jmicron ports (white)... "

    I already tried with that driver, and also the latest Intel one.....still no joy.

    Whenever I plug the SSD into one of the blue ports, the pc will not boot. It gets to the AHCI driver and then stops and hangs when it cannot see the SSD.

    I can use the white ports no problem (that is set to AHCI also), which works fine.

    I can use the blue ports in IDE mode ok, just not with AHCI, which is strange. I can also plug a different drive into the blue ports and boot ok with AHCI, then hotplug the SSD in and it can see and use it ok.

    Really strange problem this. When I installed W7 64bit I could not get the blue ports to see the SSD at all, so installed with it plugged into the white ports, hoping to switch it over once installed.

    I'm lost as to what to try next?
