have you attempted to install mac using that board?
reason i ask is that most oem boards (what youve got) have minimal bios options, and often ahci isnt mentioned.
many have installed mac using oem boards, and they do work, so its possible yours will too.

if you do decide to get a new board, i would recommend a gigabyte board.
youll have more support on here as most use GB boards, as well as sound having more compatible drivers as 1156 gigabyte boards used alc audio chipsets.

take a look at the dsdt database, and choose a board that is in that list http://www.tonymacx86.com/dsdt.php

unless you go used, however, it might be more worthwhile to sell your current system and get an 1155 board/cpu, as 1156 boards are less available and just as expensive as 1155 boards.
