I've got an ite ultra ata/133 raid/ide controller board which i hooked up inside my case when i built my computer. There are 2 ide hard drives attached to it.
It seems to be working as after bootup the controller displays -
ite8212 atapi bios v184.108.40.206
please wait for ide scan
drive 0 : not detected
drive 1 : not detected
drive 2 : not detected
drive 3 : not detected
I know i have to install the driver
but if i follow the manual
the "found new hardware wizard" is for if you install the board AFTER windowsxp format/install
but the board was installed before format/windows install
via the manual the driver location is -
f:\pci_io\ite ata133\driver\win2k_xp (which i can find)
there is no installer there but there are these files -
Can i copy these files somewhere to make the controller work?
it would seem pretty stupid if i had to pull the board out before every format/install windowsxp
I only need to use the controller as a normal ide contoller.
so i would set it up as a "array for normal"
Any detailed help would be greatly appreciated.
