AHCI driver for XP installations on Ideapad u330

I am having serious problems trying to install XP with ACHI  enabled...


I have downloaded the ahci driver from intel, ich8m-e/ich9m-e sata raid controller (it currently shows the same from within vista that's currently installed now) -- yet it just blue screens after selected that from the floppy....


just for kicks, I have also tried ich8 (all) and even ich7 (tho i knew that wouldn't work)


where can I get the sata drivers (and I've tried the chipset drivers from the drivers fro the lenovo support page) for the u330


again, any help would be greatly appreciated

Is there any benefit to having the SATA controller as AHCI when installing XP? I didn't even try bothering with SATA drivers and just changed the option in the BIOS. (sorry for derailing your topic)
