    ICH5R 802801ER

    gzkbbx

      Like I assume many others around the world I am the once proud owner of motherboard that carries the ICH5R (802801ER) SATA driver. I wish to upgrade to Windows 7 like I assume many others in my situation but am being told there will be no drivers fand that I must buy a totally new motherboard.

       

      Are there any alternatives that may work eg.

       

      Disable the ICH5R Raid but keep using the SATA disk.

       

      Use the disk but drive it from a new  HD controller

       

      Use a IDE to SATA converter
