    Default EP45-UDP3 GSATA raid driver 64 bit?

    Has anyone been able to load Vista 64 Bit using the GSATA raid instead of the INTEL raid controller?

    Vista 64 says it will not load the GSATA drivers "Jmicro" because they are not Signed drivers.

    I sent Gigabyte techsupport an email and they sent me a ftp link to jmicro website with the specific raid driver to download. Unfortunately the new files are also not signed.

    If i select the 32 bit version, everything supposely installs, however when installation reboots machine, it says it cannot locate the jmicro raid driver dll file.

    Moderators - If this is the wrong forum, please move to approriate section.

    I haven't had a problem just testing the Jmicron driver install for an IDE device (ie you have the choice on the windows installer)

    You could try getting the latest Jmicron Driver straight from Jmicron, or perhaps a slightly older GB Jmicron Driver.
    As for the digital signing, I just ignore that on some apps and drivers that I know come from legit sources.

    Well, on a fresh setup. Windows installer gives me the option of loading either 32 bit or 64 bit. Non of the 64 bit are signed. Tried both the drivers on Gigabyte CD and the FTP site from jdmicro.

    I can loaded this fine if i wanted Vista 32 bit mode. but I want 64 bit.

    Windows installer does not allow to skip the signed driver issue.

    It should do.

    Have you UAC enabled? If so disable it, even if you enable it after the loading of the driver. theres no point in installing a 32 bit driver when realtek do a 64 bit driver, regardless of the signing issue.

    I think there is a third party program called something like TweakUAC, that makes switching between enable/disabled easy.

    UAC is not an option when you first install Windows Vista. That is where my problem is the actual loading of the operating system.

    That is odd, the drivers are WHQL and the driver and cat file have digital signatures. Are you using the driver in the floppy64 folder? Any particular reason not to use the Intel controller?

    If I read you right, you are reffering to the F6 method of loading a 64bit Jmicron driver during the initial phase of installing Vista proper?

    .... well don't!

    Vista has generic drivers "out of the box", so only worry about updating them when in Windows, ie with the 64bit Jmicron driver (windows) and the Windows Intel Matrix storage manager (Ahci/raid) - if you Require the latest versions and don't want to go generic.

    The F6 method is not required for Vista.

    I don't do F6, Windows XP has that option.

    Vista actually stops at a screen prompting to load a device driver because its unable to see the GSata Raid.

    Only reason why I wanted to use the GSATA over the Intel is that the post boot up time of the Intel sits a tad bit longer than I wanted it to while the GSata post screen flys right by.

    At this point, I have given up on using the GSATA and went the INTEL route. I did go directly to the 64 bit folder on the CD.

    This all works fine with Vista 32 bit. Its the 64 bit that gave me the grief.

    Not sure what BIOS your using but the F6 is a tad quicker booting

    I am having the same problem too. I read on some other forums that installing windows vista 64 with sp1 slip streamed helps fix the problem. I am making one as I write this, i will let you know what happens.
