I'm having trouble installing these "system drivers" that I got off of MSI.
I just get a blue screen after installing, with 0x0000007e

Strange part is I can't seem to find ANYTHING about these system drivers on either ATI nor AMD homepage. It's as if this is something MSI just made up..
They're called

"ATI System Drivers for RS690/RD780/RD790/RX780/RX780/RS740/SB600"

The SB600 is installed, raid chipset, and working. They were on my CD, but as far as I can tell, there's no NB drivers running.

A quick look in the devmgr says the NB drivers are from Microsoft and dated 2006, wich is pretty ancient :p 

Anyone know where to get proper non-msi system drivers? O_o
I feel Im missing out with this gargantuan 150mb pack.

I'm going to install them one by one, to see wich one is messing up.
Guessing North Bridge filter driver, soon see if Im right.

Well, now Im getting some INF error, cant find INF file etc.
So apparently Im not supposed to use these drivers :p 
THIS error I found all over however. And I dont want to bother any more.

System is much much faster than the old, so I guess I should be happy with 2006 drivers...

I finally got most of them installed, as far as I know.
Manually installed IDE and Miniport drivers, I have no idea what else may be updated.
So I'm satisfied with this result as of now... The most important chipset works, the Promise raid array, so I didn't notice any performance impact at all from fiddling with 3GIE filter driver, nor IDE (albeit only one dvd on that port)

If your using an ATi video card your northbridge drivers are part of the Cat drivers for the video card. What is the operating system. The motherboard doesn't officially support older then XP.

Lol, I'm stupid. I forgot to mention that part! :p 
I linked a Vista x64 driver however, and that's what Im using,
Vista Home Premium x64.

The program detects hardware and tries to install drivers accordingly, it correctly detects my hardware as far as I can tell in "advanced" mode.

It does not attempt to install ATi graphics drivers, since I have a 88gts640.

I figured it out. The problem was never BAD drivers, the problem is NO drivers.
I went to the Catalyst temp folder, where it excracts everything.
And there were no SB600 Raid drivers IN THE PACKAGE.
No wonder it wouldn't work!

I figure, since the application tries to install stuff, it instead deletes whatever driver is already installed.
And well, never replaces it. That's pretty lame of ATi to not notice... O_o
