Intel Raid Drivers for D975XBX Motherboard

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Lawrence E. Oliver, Jun 27, 2008.

  1. I have a computer with the Intel D975XBX Motherboard in it (not the XBX2).
    This has 4 Intel Sata connections & 4 Silicon Images Sata connections.

    I plan to load Vista x64 on this system and run it with Raid 1 on my disks.
    The raid F6 disks that came with it do not have Vista Drivers on them. I
    have gone to the Intel Website and downloaded the raid F6 files for the
    Silicon Images Sata connections; but, there appear to be no raid F6 drivers
    for the Intel Sata connections.

    Has anyone installed Vista on this motherboard using Raid?

    If so, what drivers did you use and where did you get them?

    I'm referring to the Raid drivers for the Intel connections.

  2. The best place to look is at www.intel.com

    Since you're dealing with Intel hardware, then Intel should
    be the source of the necessary drivers.

  3. Thanks -

    I've looked all over the Intel website and couldn't find any Vista Drivers
    for the D975XBX board. So, what I'm really looking for is if someone else
    has loaded Vista w/raid on this board and how they might have done it.

    This includes them leading me by the hand to find the Intel drivers if I
    just missed them (both times I looked) :) I'm still going back and looking
    again.

    Lovely board, I have the v1 as well :)

    The drivers are here:

    I've saved you going through a bl**dy stupid Flash intro, why oh why do
    webmasters think we need cr*p like that?
    Yes to Vista, no to RAID. Then quickly to XP x64 as I found Vista unusable.
    Intel, as above.
    You need the Matrix drivers, Item 6.

    Yet another follow up - search the Intel site for Matrix Storage - Vista
    64 is supported but I can't remember which version the BadAxe supports but
    I have iata82_enu.exe in my driver directory for Vista 64.
