Thanks to your work with the modded nForce4 Windows 7 drivers, I've finally been able to get Windows 7 to respect the nvidia RAID array. I have a DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR motherboard. I installed Windows to the SiI 3114 Raid-0 array and had NO problems installing. However, once I had Windows up and running I could not get Windows to see the array, only the two separate drives. I tried numerous times with a lot of different driver combinations, SP1, etc to no avail. I tried the v998 drivers you provided and would not work. I finally uninstalled the drivers and let Windows reinstall the drivers. This put the NVIDIA nForce RAID Controller Under Storage Controllers to version 8/6/2010-10.6.0.319 (actual v10.6.0.18). The IDE drivers were at a lower version (sorry can't remember the version numbers, but it was the latest I could install). Still no dice. Finally I found this link
, 64bit driverpack v9.0 for Win7 x64 and Vista x64, from this page
, Win7/Vista: Optimized nForce Driver Packs. I am happy to report that did the trick and now I am able to use the nforce4 Raid-0 array normally (as a secondary storage drive).
Device Manager/Storage Controllers/NVIDIA nForce RAID Controller v10.6.0.319 (actual nvraid.sys v10.6.0.18)
Device Manager/IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller/NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller v5.10.2600.998 (nvstor64.sys)
I wish I could have been a bit more scientific about the way I went about installing these drivers, but by the time I finally got it to work, I was doing anything and everything to make it work. Also, I don't see where nvraid.sys lives in ANY of the driver files I installed. Where does it come from? I'd like to get a backup of all of the required driver files in case I need to reinstall this in the future. Does your version 9 contain this nvraid.sys driver file?
Thank you again for keeping the nforce4 chipset alive!
