If we mount the install.wim file included with the Dell D630 systems, we find that the msahci.sys driver is not the same as on the RTM Vista media.
There are a series of storage drivers dated 11/22/2006, whereas all RTM drivers are dated 11/2/2006. These drivers are all stored in the \Windows\System32\DriverStor\FileRepository\mshdc.inf_c6c2e699 directory, and defined in the mshdc.inf file.
I am going to try importing that directory into the "Out of Box" drivers in BDD to see if that cures our ills.

Subject: Latitude D630 storage driver problems
The Latitude D630 has been going Blue Screen after initial install of the base Vista Enterprise OS. Why? We suspect a driver incompatibility with the Intel SATA controller present on the system.
A working install deployed from the Dell Vista Business OEM OS media has the following drivers running, all using Microsoft-branded drivers:
Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850 : intelide.sys
Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller : atapi.sys, ataport.sys, msahci.sys, pciidex.sys
After running the Intel Turbo Memory A00 driver "setup.exe" that we downloaded from Dell, the Standard AHCI driver gets upgraded:
Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller : iaStor.sys
This driver works without causing a blue-screen error.
