What you certainly mean are the nForce IDE (SATA and RAID) drivers for Windows XP.ronaldinho wrote:1) Motherboad's cd has nf4 chipset drivers version 6.66 Are there any new and better official drivers to install ?
Probably the best nForce driverpack for your configuration is my "Non-AHCI nForce Performance Pack".Also i saw this stickied topic XP: Optimized nForce Driver Packs with many nf4 drivers but i dont know very well english and didnt understand which one of these are best for me.
Some nForce chipset users reported about problems with the nForce P-ATA driver (=native IDE or IDE s/w driver), which is usable with native IDE drives (have a 40pin connector), but I never heard about such problems with the nForce S-ATA drivers.Somewhere i read that users with DFI Lanparty nf4 they DONT choose to instal this IDE driver because it causes problems bluescreens BSOD. Is it true? So when i m going to install fresh windows XP i will not choose this IDE Driver? Windows XP Pro have better drive so i can leave it?
This is what I recommand:For Ethernet and Audio drivers i downloaded latests drivers from official site so i wan't install them from mobo's cd.
So the only option i will choose from cd and instal is SMBus Nvidia? Please tell me if i am wrong. I dont know what to do with this IDE Driver if it is neceserry or not to instal?
After having completed the XP installation, look into the Device Manager for "Unknown Devices". If yes, find out the name or the details of the related devices.3) Do i need to install drivers or any hotfix for my CPU: AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ ???
No, the P-ATA drives will e supported by the Win7 in-box MS IDE driver.ronaldinho wrote:1. I have optical drive with P-ATA connected so i must instal IDE driver right?
This driver is only suitable for your SATA hdd's.So i must select this also SATAIDE Driver (v9.99.09) right?
Just boot off the XP SP3 CD and let the XP Setup do its work. No separate drivers will be needed for the installation.2. I dont know how to install Windows XP SP3 without loading or integrating any drivers
No, but I recommend to install the latest Marvell Ethernet driver after having completed the OS installation.3. Is it mistake that i use for my internet Marvel Yukon ethernet ?
Yes, it is not necessary, because you did a fresh OS install.ronaldinho wrote:1. Unfortunately i forgot to run the optional IDE driver registry cleaner (made by TwL) and i read at instructions that should be run after install the Non-AHCI nForce Performance Pack and NOT REBOOT. I forgot it and i reboot Is it wrong to run the .reg file now? Or is it not nesecery because i did format and instaled fresh windows XP ?
Yes, that is a feature of the nForce SATA driver v9.99.09, which makes it possible to do "hot Plugging" even with the hard drives (except the system drive).2. After instal this pack i see my hard drives with the name of SCSI Disk Device , Is this ok?
