Thread: S-ata Drive Installation...

  1. #1
    i got my new s-ata drive this morning and have been having probs installing it...

    i've mounted it correctly in the 5.25" -> 3.5" bracket set and have the jumper and cable correctly set up

    however, i'm stuck on installing the drivers for the s-ata controller...

    i've got an asus a7n8x-d so it's got an onboard s-ata controller, but i can't install the drivers for the controller as i don't have my floppy drive installed

    is there anyway to install the drivers without a floppy drive or will i need to install the floppy to continue?

    tia for any help or advice

    I suppose you could burn them into a CD if needed for the Windows installation.

    i&#39;ve already installed these drivers, but i think i must be missing something, as it doesn&#39;t quite go according to the read me file...

    4) Verifying controller installation under Windows NT, 2000 and XP

    Follow the instructions in this section to verify that the controller was
    installed correctly.

    For Windows 2000/XP

    1. Right click on &#39;My Computer&#39; icon, select &#39;Properties&#39;, left click
    on &#39;Hardware&#39; tab, and then on &#39;Device Manager&#39; button.

    2. Double click on &#39;SCSI and RAID Controllers&#39;, If there is no yellow
    &#39;&#33; &#39; or &#39; ? &#39; in front of &#39;Silicon Image SiI 3112 Serial ATA
    Controller&#39;, the driver has started correctly.

    3. To view information about the devices attached to the controller,
    right click the &#39;Silicon Image SiI 3112 Serial ATA Controller&#39; and
    select Properties from the context menu, then select the tab
    labeled &#39;Device Info&#39;.

    For Windows NT 4.0

    1. Double click on &#39;My Computer&#39; icon, select &#39;Control Panel&#39;, click
    on the &#39;SCSI Adapters&#39; icon, &#39;Silicon Image SiI 3112 Serial ATA
    Controller&#39; should displayed correctly under &#39;Device&#39; and &#39;Driver&#39;
    tab.

    2. To view information about the devices attached to the controller,
    double click on the &#39;Silicon Image ATA Controllers&#39; control panel
    applet. Select a controller from the list at the top of the
    dialog. Then select a device from the &#39;Device Location&#39; drop down
    list to view its information."

    i&#39;ve done the installation by the instructions, but when i&#39;ve finished, under device manager, there&#39;s no "Silicon Image SiI 3112 Serial ATA Controller" displayed

    Floppy drive?
    You don&#39;t need no stinking floppy drive.

    The SATA drivers are on the CD that came with your board.
    The very last file on the CD ( I just checked on mine...).

    i&#39;ve installed those, but under device manager, it&#39;s still only saying "SCSI/RAID Host Controller" and not "Silicon Image SiI 3112 Serial ATA Controller"
