To get by this, you can slipstream drivers to a burned cd with windows], but it does not always work. IDE mode in the bios works as well, but will loose some features(NCQ, trim for SSD's ect). If you are just running a basic setup without raid or anything fancy, this may be the best option. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
