    Intel ICH8 Series vs. 10.6.0.1002 Drivers

    Z3R0

      Cutting through the chase & straight to the solution:

       

      If you are upgrading through the device manager:

      - Unpack the 10.6.0.1002 Drivers

      - Go to the AHCI controller

      - Upgrade

      - Install from a list or specific location

      - Don't search. I will choose the driver to install

      - Select your controller.

      - Have disk.

      - Go to the location where you unpacked the 10.x series driver

      - Select the iaAHCI.inf file.

      - When the list opens up, choose: Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

                                                        or

                                                        Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

      - Ignore the warnings & reboot.

       

      If you are integrating in a Windows custom disk, use the old 9.6x series & upgrade, after the installation ends, following the above instructions.

      I did the above on a 965P & a 965 Mobile and I'm running fine. No problems whatsoever.

       

      Peace.
