Hi guys, u just formatted my computer and cant install the the sata controller driver (if there one?).

In the device manager, all it says is:

"Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial Ata Controller"
"Stamdard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller"

I went to the asus website ( http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=Cr... )

and got 2 files,
"AMD RAIDXpert driver V2.4.1540.27" which looks like a piece of software other than a driver, and "AMD AHCI Compatible RAID Controller Driver V3.1.1540.127" which is just a bunch of .sys files.

I also got something called "ATK0110 driver" which a quick google revealed to be something related to AHCI (possibly a driver?).

Can someone tell me what these 2 files are, what drivers do i need to install, and finally, what does APCI do? XD

Thanks!

You want the chipset drivers for that mobo. You don't need the RAID drivers.

No. Unless you plan to use RAID.
