The Windows 7 iastor.sys driver that ships with Windows 7 supports the chipset in the X1 Carbon. It will be slightly updated (description text string only) when you install the Intel chipset drivers.
Intel chipset drivers are on the support.lenovo.com site but it appears to be broken at the moment.
Sorry man, AHCI support for the Intel controllers has been in Windows 7 since it RTM'd. The Ivy Bridge chipset in the X1 Carbon is not unique.
Are you installing Windows 7 from a retail DVD, a burned ISO from a MSDN subscription, or some other source?

No external DVD player :\ the digitialriver OEM download should work fine though? Grrrrr...really appreciate the help too Thors, thanks man.
Yes. If you are downloading the .ISO and using it to create a USB stick, make sure and use a utility known to work well. The store.microsoft.com folks have one.
