drivers on my SSD got screwed when I tried to manually update from gigabyte website, which had it buggy. I was trying to update AHCI/controller c220 chipset drivers. It or i installed wrong set of it.

Driver I manually updated:


( Do not install it if anyone reading it )

This I added and uninstalled:

Download Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver for Intel(R) 8/9/100 Series and Intel(R) C220/C610 Chipset Family

Getting this error on booting, tried all options, safe mode, last known good config, command prompt etc none work. win keeps going in BSOD screen.

Ahci enabled in bios, I tried with ide too, same error.

I have usb drive of win7 which I made from this forum I think, but I get error as bellow if I try to use it to repair, also I can't see it boot device if I got SSD connected
