I am wanting to add a SATA drive for my system, however, I am unable to move
forward unless I download the driver from Intel. If you read below as it says
on their site, you need to have a password. They call it an Entitlement Code.
When I click on the page for a customer service rep, it refers me to a line
to pay for as an incidental charge. I sent Intel an email and have yet to
hear back.

Anyone know anything about this? Thanks.

The 865 uses the ICH5R,you should go to downloads at intel,chip-sets,software,
matrix storage mgr,scroll down to the drivers for the floppy,you dont need a
password.The older drivers for that board used application accelerator,which
has been replaced by matrix.

My new system does not have a floppy. How can I go about this?

Thanks Andrew.

I doubt that you need this to install a SATA drive on an 865 system.

If you aren't installing a RAID (0 or 1) pair, I believe that you can
install a SATA drive using the drivers in XP. (I did this more than a year
ago on system with an Asus P4P800 board. My memory is hazy on the subject,
but I believe that I didn't need to do the F6 thing. I subsequently went
with RAID 0.) If you want RAID, the drivers another poster mentioned
(http://support.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/) are the right ones.

If you wish to do a fresh install of XP on a SATA RAID pair, it would be
helpful to have a floppy drive. There are supposed to be work-arounds for
this, like slipstreaming the RAID drivers into an XP installation CD, but I
haven't tried them. It would usually be simpler to install a floppy drive.

Just for luck, I tried a quick Google search for the password you request.
It's USB24me (case sensitive). I tested that: it works.


Address scrambled. Replace nkbob with bobkn.

I got the driver, but it will not let me install because I have service pack
2. No chance of going back to service pack 1 because my OEM CD is comes with
service pack 2.
