XP Another In-Place Upgrade, Repair, or some other trick? ..

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.abit (More info?)

Replaced Chaintech Chaintech 7NJS motherboard with Abit NF7-S.
Chaintech uses Promise PDC20376 SATA RAID controller, Abit uses
Silicon Image SIL-3112.
Did "in-place" upgrade as required, installed latest SATA drivers
during
boot, and added them during Windows XP Professional re-install.
Updated BIOS to the latest one - v.1.23 for motherboard version 2.0
Everything went smoothly, machine works, no performance issues.
However, Silicon Image SATA RAID driver in Device Manager appears in
"Other Devices" under the yellow question mark. All my attempts to
upgrade/reinstall/uninstall it have failed, or more precisely, Windows
never goes past its first splash screen after all such attempts - the
little thingie that runs from left to right before XP actually starts
to boot just stops and sits there. So it forces me to use "last good
menu".
I would suspect that there is a way to "clean up" the remnants of the
old drivers from the registry, but so far have not found a reference.
Any and all suggestions, ideas, and recommendations would be highly
appreciated.

    Did you do a repair install? What is a "in-place" upgrade?

    Here is some additional info. I got after digging through REGEDT32 in
    two machines - one with driver installed improperly (after motherboard
    upgrade) and the other one - identical machine with the correct
    install.
