    Default Which AHCI driver for GA-EP35-DS3P

    I'm creating a slipstream disc for XP Pro and I don't know which driver to choose.

    I downloaded the newest preinstall drivers from Gigabyte and it lists different drivers than the manual shows. The manual says to install the ICH9 SATA ACHI Controller but the updated driver doesn't show it. It shows ICH9M/E-M SATA AHCI Controller and ICH9R/DO/DH SATA Controller (and a few others). There is an ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller Which the Nlite instructions says to install. Is this the one that I need to install or the ICH9RDO/DH one?

    I also downloaded the G-SATA preinstall driver. I assume that there is only one driver for XP? RAID/AHCI Driver for Gigabyte GBB36X Controller?

    Your board has the ICH9R southbridge so you need the ICH9R/DO/DH driver. The G-SATA controller is a Jmicron JMB36x controller, you can find the download link on the stickied topic "latest overclocking programs, etc." on the main page. Good luck.

    Thanks! I found a download for the ICH9 SATA ACHI Controller and I already downloaded the Jmicron JMB36x controller from Gigabyte.
