Converting XP Pro to Windows 7 RAID Driver Question


Not sure if I am posting this in the right place, but here goes....

I am converting my 2.66 GHz Core II Duo machine from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Ultimate.

When I loaded XP, during the installation process, Windows asked me to load RAID software from a floppy disk to enable the RAID and SATA ports on my Intel DQ965GF motherboard. Will Windows 7 need the same software loaded, or will it be able to access the SATA ports and/or have the RAID software driver built into the operating system? I have the latest driver/software update from Intel for the motherboard, but have not installed anything yet. (Haven't started any of this yet)

  1. Best answer
    Windows 7 has about 99% of any RAID drivers built in. Some obscure hardware still requires you hunt for drivers but Windows 7 already has them for most motherboards.
  2. Thanks, guys!

    I downloaded all the drivers from Intel, just in case I need them.
