The hard disk is faulty.
The hard disk cabling is faulty, or the hard disk cabling is not connected correctly.
The computer is infected with a boot sector virus.
The computer BIOS or the disk controller firmware are incompatible with Windows Vista.
Another program is using the master boot record.
... those could be the problems..... or you can change the cables try to see if that works...

AHCI is a setting in your bios. It's in there.

no some of my board features are missing.. are you trying to run raid... i know that function cause in most cases causes immediate blue screen 0x0000007b error code, followed by a reboot.

You disable it in the bios


You should have a option like that somewhere. It should be on IDE - Not raid nor AHCI.
