Windows 7 has the RAID driver you do not need to create a floppy disk, once you have installed you can then install Matrix Storage Manager (I suggest 8.8) which will also update the driver.
Yes, I know that Windows 7 has the controller once the system is installed, but I tried the install and when it asked if I want to format the hard disk it asked for a floppy with the controller software so that it could perform the format prior to the install beginning. I have the upgrade version so I need a prior version installed for the upgrade to work, otherwise I would format and then install.
Will I've done that it didn't ask me for a floppy with the controller software.
I just put the DVD in > select Language > Install Now > I accept the license terms > Custom (advanced) > select the drive > Drive options (advanced) > format > Next and install.
It really should be a cakewalk thats how easy it was for me.
I'm also trying to get the drivers by Intel Download site, no success.
" ..... When I extract the zip files, the 32-bit version creates f6flpy32.exe. ....."
That's is exactly what does not happen to me; I've tried many times, but no .exe in the downloaded zip files !!
Yet, the "F6Readme" file clearly instruct :
" .... 1. In Microsoft* Windows*, double-click on the executable to run. ( F6flp32.exe )
2. Follow the steps to copy the floppy disk image onto a floppy.
I need the F6 disc because I'm wanting to install WinXPpro with the dual boot option , on a Vista OS , Intel quadcore CPU with ICH9 .
May somebody please help me to get the above F6FLP32.EXE Intel utility from the setup zip file ? Thanks!
