Default Blue Screen, Endless Restart

I am working on an MSI laptop that is stuck in an endless restart loop. When you turn it on it gets to the windows logo with the process bar then flashes a blue screen error then restarts almost instantly. I messed around in the BIOS for a bit and found that the error has to do with the AHCI controller because when i disable AHCI in the BIOS everything starts fine.

Once i got into windows with AHCI disabled i tried to preform a system restore. That dint help.

I then updated the chipset and tried to install the intel AHCI/RAID matrix controller but when i go to install it it says that the hardware setup is incompatible. its a GM965 express chipset and i got the drivers to go with it from intel.

Any more ideas would be appreciated.

EDIT: Forgot to mention safe mode doesn't work either.

How to enable ACHI in Windows XP - Google Search

That will be some of the best answers i can provide. As each system is different on how to enable ACHI after Widnows in installed. You will just have to try out a couple of hte methods and see what works for you.
