    Question ASRock X99 Extreme 6 3.1 - Driver Question

    Hi everyone,

    I hope you are well. When it comes to drivers I am a bit OCD and I am running into an issue with the ASRock Extreme 6 3.1 where I am unsure which driver to use for the board. In device manager, under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers it appears that windows is using the default "standard" driver. I believe that I can use an Intel RST driver here instead of the default. When I manually select the inf during the driver install it still defaults to the standard driver. I know I can manually select the driver to use but am unsure which one to use.

    TL;DR - What driver should I be using for my IDE ATA/ATAPI controller when selecting manually from the Intel RST driver INF?

    Thank you.

    The Intel RST driver is only for sata ports running in AHCI and RAID mode. For sata ports in IDE mode or the legacy IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers (with 40-pin ribbon cable) there is only the "standard" driver.

    Mind is not cumulative, but stupidity is.
