Thread: Infinst intel chipset and windows7 and Gigabyte mobo




  1. #1

    Default Infinst intel chipset and windows7 and Gigabyte mobo

    Hi,

    Is that necessary to install infinst chipset drivers for windows 7 or drivers provided by windows is perfect for best operation?

    Also, is there any driver that we must to install under w7 (and better than w7 original drivers) ?

    Of course I know that azalea drivers, lan drivers and AHCI drivers for example must be installed, but any other over this ?

    (x64 system)


    Thanks in advance,
    Pubem

    Hi

    You only need sound and LAN drivers, don't let Windows update do these!

    AHCI runs from standard W7 installation.

    Windows 7 will install all default drivers for sound, land and AHCI. But it is always suggest to install the latest drivers from MFR website or you can find them here stickied to the top of the forum or in my sig. Like said dont let windows update these drivers via Windows Update.

    You do not "Have" to install chipset drivers, but it is suggested!

    Here is the latest Chipset drivers 9.​​1.​​1.​​1019 >>

    I have two questions:

    First - does that package (INF Update Utility -​​ Primarily for Intel® 5,​ 4,​ 3,​ 900 Series Chipsets) work for EX58 boards? I thought EX58 built on P55.

    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?

    Thanks LSD, "suggested" is fairly enough for me: -)

    Yes, you right about it. I remember when I updated LAN last time, killed my, and driver reinstall not helped than.

    And yes, booth AHCI runs fine without issue, I confused with my xp install, where gsata ahci was issue, but then solved.

    And Nvidia off course :-)

    On my last w7 install there was no installed sound drivers at all (no need them) but two days ago I tried to install the newest from MFR website .
    (but there is two+1 drivers on this.)

    After install there was no mixer panel, sound setup for speakers etc.
    But after that I have installed the driver from gigabyte.com.tw and that one works fine.
    So which driver I need from mfr website exaclty ?

    Realtek High Definition Audio Driver R2.33-Win 7/Vista 32/64

    vs

    Realtek AC'97 Driver 6.305 (5.37) ( Vista/Win 7 32/64)

    and

    Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio.
    (I'm really confused about this one)

    Hi,

    Switching by registry tweak AHCI is tricky I tought.

    You really don't need on w7. First time I was installed without AHCI,
    but after that, I changed in the bios to ahci booth controllers onboard and gsata, but w7 detect changes without problem, and on next restart I was on AHCI without problem.

    But actually I suggest always to install w7 right in ahci mode, this is the safe and correct way I think, not changing that on the way.

    (I need to tweak my XP as you do, because it's installed long time ago in normal mode, but I need it on ahci, because my w7 is the same, and changing in the bios when I swithing operating systems is a pain. gsata in ahci now, but onboard is a more tricky one.)

    I agree, it is tricky but I already set everything up so I don't want to waste time again. Did you install drivers for GSATA in W7?
