comment How can I verify that my SSD is performing as it should?
Just saw this, I'd try popping in the 7 DVD, repair options on startup, doing this in any case will toggle everything over without registry edits, just takes a few minutes for it to check out what the problem is (which driver isn't not loading in this case)...used this toggling ATA/AHCI on several company laptops while we sorted out what works best, worked like a charm.

@John - In your registry, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci what's Start set to?

@Jon - What error did it throw you? Might be helpful to know why it fails to behave at all in a mode it should.

Have you tried switching back to ATA now that windows is installed? It's a quick thing to test, maybe something funny with the controller in that laptop. I have a dell with an SSD here, access times are better in ATA mode for whatever reason, even though that shouldn't be true.
