    i'm having some trouble installing windows seven on a crucial m4 connected to a gigabyte 990fxa-ud5 motherboard.

    bios is set to ahci.
    after windows setup, the ahci drivers from either windows update or the cd provided with my motherboard install just fine.
    on next boot i get "Disk Read Error before windows can load.."

    any suggestions?

    could this be a defective SSD?

    you could also try not setting it to AHCI and try if it works.
