Sata 6.0 and Windows 7 not playing nice.

I've finally put my machine together, but I had a slight problem installing Windows 7. It kept giving me an error that it couldn't install to my 128gb SSD drive. I swapped the drive to a 3.0 sata spot with a 3.0 cable and the install went through, so I figured the installer just didn't know how to handle Sata 6.0.

However, after installing drivers, I'm still having problems. Windows either locks up on boot or blue screens ot whenever I try to load it from sata 6.0. (I'm also positive I'm using the right cables each time)

I'm pretty sure I have all the drivers installed, so I'm not sure what's going on, and my issue seems to be fairly unique as I can't find anything on about it on the intertrons.

Loading the repair wizard seems to work. I'll keep you posted on how that turns out.

EDIT: Here's my parts
Windows 7 Home Edition
Asus P7P55D-E Pro motherboard
Crucial 128 SSD
EDIT: Motherfucker. Bios update fixed it. Onward to awesome computerage!
