    RST ICH9R Driver - Can't Find The Right One

    kenb645

      I want to install a SATA Advanced Format (emulated) HDD in AHCI configuration. I use Vista32 Home Premium.

       

      My chipset is a "3 Series Chipset" (mine is a P35 Express) and my controller hub is the "82801IR/IO Controller Hub (ICH9R/DO) RAID and AHCI". The RST spec info says both are supported by Intel ... and that I need a driver 9.6 or newer.

       

      BUT ... when I go to the download center ... I can't find a driver that is applicable to the ICH9R. The only RST/Vista32 driver I found was version 11.2.0.1006 dated 6/7/12 ... and the readme file doesn't list the ICH9R. HOWEVER ... the readme file lists the "Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller" ... and I dunno what that is ... but I wonder if that could be my controller hub ... yes ... no?

       

      So ... is version 11.2.0.1006 the right driver ... or am I outa luck?

       

      Thanks!
