View Full Version : SATA Driver help
05-21-06, 12:54 PM
I have a friend with an older Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe he is trying to install a WD 10k rpm sata drive but cannot find the drivers for it. I have searched everywhere I can think of for them but with no luck. The ones on the Asus web site are 30mb's and won't fit on a floppy. I have also tried western digital's web site as well as nvidia's all with no joy.

Amazing!!! nobody knows where to get these drivers.
You will have to get them from the chipset manufacturers website, which in this case I gather is nV.
Unfortunately, for some strange reason nV seems incapable of providing a simple floppy disk image to download (as all other chipset manufacturers do). But they've created this "helpful" guide: http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_28653.html
Hope that helps.

The drivers are from Silicon Image.
download the 30mB file from Asus
Extract it (I use WinRar) to a folder
Where you see the files like Si3112r.inf and readme.txt, copy the files (not the folders) to a floppy (root, not in a folder). That's it.
When prompted during XP setup to press F6, do so, and use this disk.
