    What's the difference between Intel(R) 8 Series Chipset... and Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 chipset...?

    WiD

      I recently install upgrade the IDE ATA/ATAPI controller drive from Intel(R) 8 Series 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller & Intel(R) 8 Series 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller drive to Intel(R) 8 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller drive so that I can be able to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology. But my Universal Serial Bus Controller says that I'm useing Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 series USB EHCI.

      My question is why it works well with Intel(R) 8 Series Chipset drive even I'm not using Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 Chipset drive?

      What's the difference between Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller drive and  Intel(R) 8 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller drive?

      And why there are two IDE ATA/ATAPI controller drives before I upgrade it?

      By the way, I'm using HM87 chipset.

      For who ever answer these questions:

      Thank you.
