Motherboards don't have a driver per se, instead you install drivers for various components built into the motherboard, such as:

* Chipset drivers

* Onboard video card

* Onboard sound card

* Onboard network card

* BIOS firmware (not really a driver, but keep this up to date)

and on expensive mobos

* Onboard raid card

You can find all of these on the motherboard's support page, just go there, enter your service tag and it will take you to a page with any related drivers.

Okay thx for the response.

Then im lookin for the onboard raid card driver..

I'll keep on searching.. gonna post when i've found something..

By the way: If i update my Bios firmware now and then reinstall the OS again, will i need to update the Bios firmware again or not?

Wasn't sure about this one.. but i guess no. Is my presumption right?

Okay well i checked through the Dell Site, gave in my service tag again.

The site though only gives me the following downloads:

- Applications

- Audio

- Bios

- Chipset

- Diagnosis

- Graphics

- Communication

- Mouse and Keyboard

- Network

- Systemprogramms

Anyway, the actual problem i got, when trying to install Win XP Unattended i get the

Error: Can't find any harddrive. So i presume this has to do with that I didnt slipstream

the raid card..
