    Default Gigabyte websites not identical

    I have a GA-MA78GM-S2H, and put in a new 1T HDD, got it formatted, added Vista and all was going well until I couldn't find the disk that came with the MB. Vista didn't set up the on-board LAN driver correctly, so I couldn't even get to the Gigabyte website on that computer to get the drivers. Going to a working laptop, went to gigabyte.us, found the board, got to the correct drivers page and found no drivers for the LAN. [Realtek seems to have moved on from this one; an entire page of discription, but I couldn't find a driver there, either]
    For some unknown reason, the next day I tried gigabyte.com.tw, found the board, got to the correct drivers page, and the LAN drivers were there. Right now, I have the two sites in two different browser tabs and the .us site does not have the LAN driver, and the .tw site does. [I suppose if this MB (rev 1.0) were newly released, there might be some lag of information on the two sites....]
    If I had known about the difference in the two websites, it would have saved me a lot of time.

    Confusing? Yes. But had I known that there were differences, I wouldn't have wasted so much time. Hope this helps others.

    They are different because different regions have different boards, and not all sites update with each file at the same time, or at all sometimes.

    You can always get the realtek drivers directly, if you need help with that let me know and I will show you the direct way and a site that also has all drivers updated direct (Intel, Realtek, GBT BIOS, ect)
