Assuming this is the same AHCI controller (probably is, because I only
see one mentioned in your logs), I think Win7 moved it from where BIOS
left it. It probably started at 0xff970000, and Win7 moved it into one
of the host bridge windows (but not the legacy VGA one):

pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0xff980800-0xff980bff]
pci_root PNP0A03:00: host bridge window [mem 0xff97c000-0xff97ffff]
pci 0000:00:1f.2: no compatible bridge window for [mem 0xff970000-0xff9707ff]
