"Can find amd_sata.sys", then the computer reboots.
amd_sata.sys is a storport.sys child driver.
That's supported at 2003 and up. http://msdn.microsof...f567541(v=vs.85
amd_sata.sys won't work in XP.

Well, that's strange, the amd_sata.sys driver is included in the official driver package.
Yes, it's confusing.
AMD Chipset Drivers 24.2 MB 12.1 1/25/2012
AMD AHCI Driver
AMD Raid Drivers 24.2 MB 12.1 1/25/2012
AMD A-Series APU Chipset RAID Drivers
Information is misleading.
I do have theAMD SATA AHCI driver named ahcix86.sys here. But is in a folder called RAID.
The RAID driver does support AHCI too.
Ignore the web page:
do not use AHCI drivers at AHCI
use RAID drivers at AHCI.
It's documented actually:
AMD AHCI controller driver distribution list
Version 1.2.001.0317, 10/04/2011
WS03x64 - Windows Server 2003 SP2, x64
WS03x86 - Windows Server 2003 SP2, x86
LHx64 - Windows Server 2008, x64
LHx86 - Windows Server 2008, x86
Win7x64 - Windows Server 2008R2, x64
Strange: a driver at \xp\ directory matches 2003, but not XP.
%AMD% = AMD,NTx86.5.2
.5.2 refers to 2003. That's 2003 only, not XP.
It's a nLite error to include this driver to XP.
