In AHCI mode it can't init the drives so information about stability is not available.Run it in Legacy IDE mode and this problem should be history.
I just ran the SeaTools for DOS on a 1TB disc in Legacy IDE mode on a dual core processor with hyperthreading on, and it crashed after testing about 75% of the sectors. So, itis not stable even in Legacy IDE mode.
Now I have put off hyperthreading in the BIOS, and hope this will do the trick...
