  1. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    I know its more stable...I was/am an Alpha, Beta and RC tester....I just hate the GUI....I guess I'm a minimalist
  2. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    I'm gonna crack up....1st i am already running the 15.45 drivers....2nd...the SI3132 error just went away all by itself. Since it's MS Tuesday....I think I'm going to just put this idea aside for later.... I've been trying to get to 3.8++Ghz...and I think that's what may have caused the SI3132 error...to be honest..this is the flakiest ASUS motherboard I've ever owned, and it doesn't seem to be just me. This is my 3rd ASUS board and the other two were rock solid no matter what you threw at them, still are as a matter of fact. I can't really call foul on this motherboard quite yet....after about 4-5 more BIOS updates, maybe they'll get it calmed down. It's rock solid at 3.7ghz (up from 3.2Ghz), I have an AMD 955 black edition in it. Thanks for all the help and sorry to bail like this, but maybe next year I'll try again....or maybe I'll just break down this winter and do a clean install..I HAVE been running almost 6 years now on the same Ghost Image. I just got it tweaked so well, I don't want to go through it all again. I even managed to disable ALL the $shares, including the $IPC Maybe I'll just break down and do Windows 7, even though I utterly HATE the GUI. If you get any say in the matter, have them make Windows 8 with an XP GUI Thanks again, and keep up the good work
  3. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Well I followed the directions at the link you provided and along the way chose have disk and browsed to the AHCI driver on the motherboard disc...they installed...then it wanted to reboot...so I did....then went into the BIOS and chose AHCI mode....no go....0x000000F8 error...so I went back into the BIOS and chose IDE...same error....so i used the ghost boot CD to restore...and all is back the way it was now. Can I still delete all the SI3132 entries? I don't see in any of the motherboards documentation....anything about a Silicon Image controller?
  4. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    This motherboard doesn't even have a floppy controller...that's another reason... Am I assuming correctly that the nvgts.sys are the correct AHCI drivers, or should i use the AHCI drivers off the motherboard CD? Thanks for your prompt response, also I'm a little foggy on where to GET the driver ...from...in this screen shot of the Win XP 32bit AHCI driver...I can right click nvgts.ini and click install? The AHCI driver from the website has no such option...it ONLY allows a "make disk" option.
  5. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    Hello Fernando...as you can tell I'm very new here. Ok, here is the problem...I run Windows XP Pro 32bit w/SP2 on an ASUS M4N82 Deluxe motherboard (980a chipset)...I also use Norton Ghost 2003. I have the Windows XP Pro CD but long ago I had slipstreamed SI3132 drivers on to it...back when I was on an nforce 2 board. I'm STILL using the same ghost image from the nforce2 > then nforce5 > and now on my current motherboard. I am more or less on the same image except that i have properly uninstalled and then installed the nVidia chipset and display drivers when I moved to each new motherboard.....finally it has caught up with me. So now I too need to install the AHCI SATA drivers from within Windows. In the screen shot below I have included what I hope is all pertinent information. I'm an over-clocker and have the feeling that i have found the reason my AMD 955 is stuck at 3.7Ghz. Over the years I have severely tweaked Windows XP and REALLY don't want to reinstall it. I have two Sata II hard drives....a WD 300Gb Velociraptor, and a Segate 250Gb 7200.10. I have 3 partitions on the WD and 2 on the Seagate. The BIOS is currently set to IDE mode. As you can see in the screenshot i have the latest NVGTS,sys file from the 15.45 nVidia chipset drivers. Assuming I move them to the System32\Drivers folder....how do I tweak my registry to properly activate them, and do I have to enable the AHCI in BIOS before or after the registry edit? Every time I reboot I get that SI3132 error. Thx in advance, hopefully you can assist me in this. P.S. I keep full image backups and can get to them even if Windows won't boot....via the Ghost boot CD. Lastly i don't care about RAID at all.
