  1. Hey Fernando, hows it going? Well its been a few days now since installing with the slipstreamed Gigabyte drivers. I'm not liking how my computer has turned out though! I seem to get these random system stutters now, on desktop mainly. My mouse and system stops and starts with 1 second delays in between. This can last for about 6 seconds then it will stop. Sometimes i can recreate the issue by opening up random applications, like Firefox. Or entering my hard-drive. I've noticed when these stutters occur, with every stutter, my HDD light blinks! I also observed task-manager during the issue a
  2. Some ATI cards need the drivers 2 times.Try the following: 1. Right click onto the unknown PCI device. 2. Hit the "update driver software" option. 3. Point to the Omega driver again. After the driver install the yellow mark and the "Unknows PCI Device" hopefully will be eliminated and you will get 2 graphics adapter entries. That looks fine.CU Fernando Thanks buddy, ill let you know how i get on later today. 3:36AM here, just got in from work.
  3. Everything seems to be fine.The MS and the JM36X Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controllers are managing your enabled native IDE ports (unused or for example connected with your optical drives), whereas the GIGABYTE GBB36X Controller manages the S-ATA hdd connected JMicron SATA AHCI Controller. Have an additional look into the "disk drives" section of the device manager (name and properties of the hdd). Your system is missing a driver (HDAudio?). Do a right click onto the unknown PCI device and check the details (Hardware ID). Hey Fernando, Thanks for quick reply. I think i've discovered what
  4. Whats up Fernando. Was wondering if you can tell me what's going on here. So i installed with the Jmicron drivers, plugged into the GSATA ports etc. But now under IDE/ATA Controllers i have all of these entries 3 - 'Primary IDE Channel' 3 - 'Secondary IDE Channel' and 2 - 'Standard Duel Channel PCI IDE Controller'. Also, upon each restart, i always have an 'Other Devices - PCI Device/Unknown Device' entry in my device manager which i can't seem to stop. Cheers Fernando.
  5. You can verify it after having completed the XP installation by having a look into the device manager.Either within the "IDE ATA/ATAPI" or in the "Storage Controller" section you should find a device like "Intel SATA AHCI Controller". Instead i put in the ordinary XP disc... It went through the same process, and recognized the HDD. This means the drivers had no affect. Some people are saying the Intel AHCI is powered by the Jmicron controller, maybe i should just go with that and install all the GSATA drivers instead. I just dont think this mobo supports the Intel method, i just dont know an
  6. It is a good idea to additionally integrate the INF Intel Chipset drivers.You didn't answer to my question, if your S-ATA hdd was connected to one of the Intel S-ATA port while installing XP. That is the most important point! Please check, where the S-ATA data cable from your hdd is connected. If you want to use the Intel S-ATA Controller features, you have to make sure, that the cable is connected to one of the Intel ports. If you are really unsure, you should enable the AHCI option for all S-ATA ports (Intel and JMicron) while installing Windows XP. After the successful install you can dis
  7. Are you sure, thata ) your S-ATA hdd was connected to an Intel S-ATA Connector while installing XP and b ) you had enabled TEXTMODE while integrating the Intel S-ATA driver? Because they are better and have better support (more frequently driver updates). I'm definitely selecting them in text mode. There, i have them all selected, then i'd hit OK, and follow the guide through. Then create an ISO from it, mount that image, then copy the image onto a CD. Right? Do you think i should put the INF Intel Chipset drivers into the slipstream, maybe that will help it recognize the AHCI drive? I'm p
  8. Indeed, which this is the problem ive been trying to describe. If i continue this slipstream in the Intel ports, i must install the Intel drivers, which, as you know, are not installing during the Slipstreamed setup! As this guy said, i don't think my ICH8 chipset has an AHCI controller or something yet on Google people are saying it does, just Intel hasn't officially acknowledged it. Also, everyone says to go with the Intel ports for better performance! You can see the dilemma i am in. Argh! Why would you recommend the Intel ports over the GSATA ones anyway?
  9. Thankyou so much Fernando, i will carry this out, i know it will work this time. I'll let you know how i get on mate. Thanks so much for the help and guide. EDIT: I think also, the two settings in the Bios are confusing. There is an 'AHCI Mode' Disable/Enable, and then there's the Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode - AHCI/RAID-IDE/IDE. Enabling the 'AHCI Mode' brings up the Intel 'POST' screen i described above. Enabling the 'AHCI' toggle next to Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode brings up a Gigabyte SATA2/IDE Bios during POST as well. Which makes me believe i should disable the 'AHCI Mode' setting (For Int
  10. That's right. Windows Setup is not able to recognise a JMicron S-ATA AHCI Controller connected hdd, if you load the Intel drivers.Your motherboard obviously has an Intel ICH8 southbridge (and needs the Intel INF chipset drivers), but has not Intel S-ATA Controllers at all. If you want to use the AHCI features (which is recommended), you have to enable "AHCI Mode" within your BIOS and slipstream the Gigabyte (=JMicron) S-ATA textmode drivers. You have to enable the "AHCI Mode" before you are going to install a Windows OS. Your motherboard supports AHCI, but the SATA AHCI Controller is the JMic
  11. Argggggggggggh! I slipstreamed ALL those available drivers onto the CD like you suggested Fernando. Plugged HDD into the Orange SATA Intel ports, set AHCI Mode to 'Enabled' and set 'Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode' to 'AHCI'. Started up the Windows installation, 'Setup is Copying files' then pressed Enter when it gets to the 'Install Windows XP on Hard Drive'. Then it takes me to that screen, AGAIN! ''No hard drive detected, Press F3 to quit setup''. Argh! So i quit setup, set AHCI Mode to 'Disabled' but left the Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode to AHCI. Went through the process, this time it found the
  12. You only have to wait a few seconds unless you have used Rapidshare for a big download just before. Yes! The correct one for you is the one above the one you have enabled.By the way: I have written within my guide, that you should enable all listed Intel SATA Controllers, if you are not sure, which one of the listed Controller is the correct one. Yes! Thankyou fernando! I will try this out as soon as possible. I'll let you know how i get on! Put it this way: If i don't come back within a few hours, it worked. On other hand, it may have failed. So! Just sit tight, and ill get back to you somet
  13. Why have you done this?It would have been easier just to take the small driver package I have linked to within my guide. No, you slipstreamed the wrong SATA RAID and not the needed SATA AHCI Controller (just 1 position above the one you enabled). The ICH8 Controller will be detected by Windows Setup, if you integrate the needed Intel textmode driver for the ICH8 SATA AHCI Controller. You didn't enable the needed AHCI Controller, because you don't have a RAID array. Your driver package is on Rapidshare! Which means i would have to wait 128 minutes from the time i encountered this guide. The In
  14. Hey Fernando, First of all, fantastic guide! I've been looking for a specific AHCI Intel Slipstream guide for ages. However, as always, there is a problem - with my procedure. The Facts: HDD: New Western Digital 500GB SATA2 HDD. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965P DS3 - (G965 Express Chipset) Motherboard Specs/Manual/Drivers etc. My Procedure: Hard-Drive is plugged into the Intel Controller ports (Orange). Downloaded the 'Intel Matrix Storage Manager' (File: iata78_enu.exe). Run the '-a -a -p' command to extract the required files. Booted up Nlite and hit 'Integrate > Drivers'. Navigated to the
