    maybe 8 and XP


    heah sl2222 I just found a boatload of HP drivers all for the controller I have some as new as 12/12. I found it by tracking down a dev #
    They have 15 different files all work with mine. Does this make sense?

    not sure what you r referring to.
    if u see a raid or ahci storage controller (something like iastor.sys) those r the ones.
    I'm pretty sure the link i provided above will work for your system. it won't hurt to try. There is a setup program to install these drivers and if it's not for your system it'll get rejected.

    sl2222 tried that driver and although it installed it does not work. I found a load of HP drivers all for my board. All different numbers and dates. I wont use them because I cant figure it out.
    Not sure what to do now. Runs great as long as its set for IDE but thats it.

    also I'm at the foxconn support site. Your model has more to it than H61. Check closer on the board and see what the full model number is.
    h61A
    h61MP
    etc

    I looked at their site and my board is not there. Its made for HP and is branded. The numbers I posted for the board came right off the board. That is all there is. Check the link I posted in maybe page 8 or 9 here it is the link right to HP with all the specs you can get on it.

    EDIT: you should probably remove all of the unknown drivers before attempting the following but it probably doesn't make a difference




    ok, i found something that might work for u.
    The attached file has an iastor.sys file for intel (the latest)
    put that file in your windows/system32 folder
    there is also a registry file in the zip. just double click to enter it into the registry.
    You can delete the key later if it doesn't work.
    Then re-boot and enter the bios. Change to ahci and re-boot.
    Windows should find new hardware and want to re-boot.
    let me know if u try it.

    Heah cool I will try this. I going to grab supper right now I need a break been at this for 18 hours straight now. Its 5:45 here now I will be back in 2 hours and I will give it a try. I was going to ask if I should get rid of those drivers I installed already. I would like to try this without. Do you think I should get rid of them first or can I install the new ones?
