If you also have something like that, then try checking your BIOS for an option like "Onboard SATA/IDE Control Mode" [IDE/AHCI]. If it's there, set it to AHCI and you should be able to use the ahci driver. Oddly, sata_nv is still required on my board as well, so I have both compiled in (but the ahci driver is being used).
here is my lspci result, my motherboard do not have any settings to change the sata mode, I've call the support and they told me the ahci function is always on......
