    Second - I switched to AHCI today (Windows 7, EX58-UD4P) using registry tweak and althought HDDs that connected to Intel controller work fine, the one HDD that connected to GSATA is acting weird. On first boot, it disappeared. I installed Gigabyte RAID Configurer from mobo's CD, rebooted and it appeared. Then I updated Microsoft's AHCI driver, rebooted and Windows said that it had to create a temp pagefile because it couldn't access the regular one - which is on that GSATA HDD. It happened a couple more times after that, too. I can't find a logic there and everything seems to work but it still bothers me. UPD: it happens every other reboot. Is there a new or some special driver for GSATA?

    Here's how my Device Manager looks right now:



    Notice that Gigabyte controller is in Storage Controllers group - is this supposed to be like that?

    1. Yes it is for X58 / P55 and previous chipsets.

    http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-029901.htm

    2. If you are not wanting to use AHCI on the Gigabyte ports you do not have to, just uninstall the driver and set the BIOS back to IDE mode. Yes there is different drivers for it, and I suggest you use those from J.Micron direct and remove the RAID utility since you are not running RAID

    Here is the latest set of J.Micron drivers >>
    ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/jmb36x/XP_Vista_Win7/

    // RX.XX.XX - Driver would get eSATA setting from BIOS/Option Rom.
    // RX.XX.XX_eSATA - Driver would report all Device connected as Removable Device with WriteCache Enabled.
    // RX.XX.XX_eSATA_WriteCacheDisabled - Driver would report all Device connected as Removable Device with WriteCache Disabled.
    // RX.XX.XX_No_eSATA - Driver would report all Device connected as Fix Device.
    </pre>

    Hello,

    It is a standard question (and they voting for onboard controller), but I'm just interested in your opinion:

    Is there any reason to use (or mix) the secondary controller over onboard, if 4 hard drives fit on onboard one ? (for example 2+2 set)
    (not RAID set up)


    Also (as two different esata and nonesata driver version), it is perfectly safe to connect hard drive to external e-sata (mobo's backpanel connected to mobo) connection the sata drives without any external mobile rack or something, just the hard drive itself when computer is on ? Or better for safety to turn off the computer and than connect the drive ?
    Also I assume the same operation to the internal ones (as they connected to the same connections on the board) so can I connect them with computer on ?




    Thanks,
    Pubem

    Not sure what you are asking? If you are asking about two arrays, you can use 2 on the Intel controller if you want, or yes you could have one on the Gigabyte ports but the Intel one is faster

    No, but I will now install infinst and jmicron drivers and report to you.

    If faster, there is no more questions:)

    Please download the second link not the first
    I have just installed it, but I can't approve that is it correctly installed.
    All system drivers signed as microsoft driver, not intel. (SMBUS for example)

    How can I check it that all inf drivers installed correctly ? (running setup again says that all drivers installed correctly)

    Check PCI Express drivers/bridge drivers. If it installed then it is installed, it would error on you otherwise. Sometimes it only updates 1-2 drivers as needed, other times it may update many

    Yes you can connect a drive with no rack, just the drive. I do suggest you connect drives with the system off though for safety

    All of my system drivers are still microsoft.

    Don't know if this helps, but the list of commands you can run for the inf utility (from command line):

    -?
    Displays the list of available command line
    flags. This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    -A
    Extracts all the INF files and Readme to either
    "C:\Program Files\Intel\InfInst" or the
    <Installation Path> directory specified using
    the '-P' flag. The software will NOT install
    these INF files to the system. This flag can
    be combined only with the '-P' flag. All other
    options will be ignored if the '-A' flag is
    specified. This flag works in Interactive Mode
    only.

    -Aonly
    Extracts only the INF files necessary for the
    current system. If the install has been run once
    successfully, '-Aonly' will not return any INFs.
    When used in conjunction with '-overall' switch,
    all the needed INFs for the system will be
    extracted.

    -B
    Automatically reboots the system after
    installation. This flag is ignored if '-A' flag
    is specified. This flag works in either Silent
    Mode or Interactive Mode.

    -f2<path\Logfile>
    Specifies an alternate location and name
    of the log file created by InstallShield Silent.
    This option is used for silent installation from
    a CD. 'Path' indicates the directory path where
    installation status is logged in file 'Logfile'

    -L<LangCode>
    Forces the installer user interface to
    display the specified language during setup.
    Note that there should be NO space between
    '-L' and the 4-digit language code (see below).
    This flag must be placed at the end of the
    command line flag list. This flag works in
    Interactive Mode only.

    -NOLIC
    Does not display the license agreement dialog box during
    installation. This parameter works in Interactive
    Mode only.

    -NOREAD
    Does not display the Readme display during installation.
    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    -NOWEL
    Does not display the welcome screen during installation.
    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    -OVERALL
    Updates ALL INF drivers on all available devices
    even if third party drivers are currently installed.
    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    -OVERIDE
    Updates the storage drivers even if a third
    party storage driver is currently installed.
    This flag works in Interactive Mode only.

    -OVERSMB
    Updates the SMBus drivers even if third party SMBus
    drivers are currently installed. This flag works
    in Interactive Mode only.

    -P<Installation Path>
    Specifies the hard disk location to which the
    INF program files are copied. If this flag is
    not specified at the command line, the
    <Installation Path> directory is as follows:

    C:\Program Files\Intel\INFInst

    If this flag is used without the '-A' option,
    only the Readme will be copied to
    <Installation Path>. The directory name can
    include spaces, but then a pair of double quotes
    (") must enclose the directory name. There should
    not be any space between the switch '-p' and the
    directory name. This flag works in either Silent
    Mode or Interactive Mode.

    -S
    Runs the Installer in Silent Mode (no user
    interface is displayed). This flag and the
    '-L' flag must be placed at the end of the
    command line flag list.

    -SKIP<DevID>
    Suppresses the installation of one or more
    devices.This flag works in either Silent Mode
    or Interactive Mode.

    In your case you will want to add -OVERALL which will force the system to accept the intel ini's

    Hope it helps!

    ex. C: \ Users \ <UserName> \ Desktop \ <Intel Chipset Utility installer> -OVERALL
    I7 - 2600K
    Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H (bios F20e mod)
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB)
