Not sure if I am posting in the right place but...
Need Help please!
Looking to see which driver we need for Gateway M-255E computer... SATA Control drivers...

Intel(R) 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH7M)
Intel(R) 82801FR SATA RAID Controller (Desktop ICH6R)
Intel(R) 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller (Desktop ICH6R)
Intel(R) 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH6M)
Intel(R) 82801ER SATA RAID Controller (Desktop ICH5R)

Anyone know which one I use or how I can find out without looking in device manager?
Thanks in advance for any and all advice!

Hi, in order to help future Googlers, there is an easy way to tell what driver you need: boot into an older version of Ubuntu (I used 9.04 so it would boot quickly) and run this command:
[cpp]lspci | grep SATA[/cpp]
Works like a charm.
