BSOD after changing from IDE to AHCI? Read this.
Did you change the SATA mode from IDE to AHCI after reading that doing so will boost your computer's performance and are now getting Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)?

Here's the solution:

Disable AHCI in BIOS; turn HDD configuration to IDE
Click Start, type regedit in the Search box, and then press ENTER.
Locate the following registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci
In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
Reboot your computer and boot into BIOS setup
Turn on AHCI in your HDD configuration
