well i know you at least have ata support CONFIG_ATA

  │
Location:

  │     -> Device
Drivers

  │       -> Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental)
drivers
  │   Selects: SCSI

then the next option needed for for ahci sata support CONFIG_SATA_AHCI

  │
Location:
  │     -> Device
Drivers

  │       -> Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental)
drivers
  │         -> ATA device support (ATA [=y])

and finally CONFIG_ATA_PIIX for the intel ich support (2 options below the
AHCI SATA)

  │   Location:
  │     -> Device
Drivers

  │       -> Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental)
drivers
  │         -> ATA device support (ATA [=y])

that should take care of it
