I added the non-RAID there because I'm planning to run 2 drives as normal drives, and I have played around with the Sil3112 drivers, which I got working using the nforcers method of changing txtsetup.sif, but I'm wondering if the same type of method would work for non-RAID on the ICH5R.
I have the IAA files extracted from the downloaded file, and have had a brief look through them, but the inf mentions being for the IAA RAID (only?), and have seen other posts on here using the RAID drivers same as for the Sil, but I don't want to use the drive/s in RAID. I tried doing it without any drivers once or twice, but each time it went on the endless loop of running setup again, after copying the files to the drive I wanted it to, which it obviously found to start with, but not again after that.
The only way I've gotten the drive to work "properly" is to set the sata port0 to run as PM, which means I can't run my 2 cd drives on seperate channels to speed up transfers, though I don't think I had any problems using that other method before, but I just want to run the drive in "full SATA mode" if it's possible.
Oh yeah, I have an 8KNXP with 2x120Gb drives in RAID0 on IDE RAID, as well as 2 other drives as slaves, and currently 2 cd drives on seperate channels, with the main OS drive on the Sil controller with another drive on ICH5R. Running XP SP1 too. F5 BIOS as well.
