Specs: Abit P35Pro mother board, Vista Home Premium
I want to add an Advanced Format (emulated) 1TB HDD in AHCI configuration ... not RAID. Evidently ... per Intel ... I need to update my Intel ICH9R driver with their Advanced Format HDD compliant RST driver.
Although the ICH9R is listed ... there is no applicable driver listed in their download center. By looking at the readme files it appears that Intel has discontinued ICH9R support ... because it's not listed in the readme file.
So guys ... am I out of luck here ... or do I have it all wrong that I need this driver?
Additionally ... I've read a lot of stuff about adding AF drives ... and I'm aware of a couple of hotfixes required by Microsoft ... but can anyone point me to a link that describes exactly how to get these things to work with Vista?
