    Howdy all,
    I searched all over the net and can't seem to find any info on my
    problem. I got a blue screen about a week ago caused by something with
    my Graphics card(during the blu screen I was able to read something
    about graphic memory dump I believe) This makes sense, as I had just
    clicked to exit NWN2(the game that came bundled with the card).
    Anyway, ever siscne that, it has booted slowly (spends about a full
    minute on the post screen, and some time with the scrolling line). That
    is unless I unplug the computer for a few minutes, then it boots as it
    did before.
    So after alot of digging and reinstalling of all available drivers
    from Gigabyte and Nvida and nothing has helped from that, so I decided
    to do the "upgrade" trick. So I uninstalled SP1, and ran the upgrade.
    It told me that
    These issues do not prevent your upgrade, but some applications and/or
    devices might not work once your upgrade completes.





    - Storage controllers: A441Y0U9 IDE Controller

    I thought this to be a bit strange, but figured that the upgrade would
    smooth things out. Later, when the upgrade was nearing completion, I
    got an error saying that one or more devices could not be configured. I
    tried this twice. So, I tried to do some research into my IDE storage
    contoller. The IDE storage controller driver shows no signature or
    provider name in Everest or Device Manager. I tried automatically
    updating the driver and Windows said that it could not locate a driver
    for my product. I searched the internet for some reference to this type
    of problem, or for some reference to a driver available for download
    with absolutely no luck.
    So, should my IDE storage contoller have a digitally signed
    driver? and if so, from whom? Any other ideas?

    Vista Ultimate 64
    Q6600 @ 3.2
    Gigabyte ga-p35-DSR3 Rev.2
    Gigabyte 8800GT 512 MB nforce edition
    4x1GB PQI RAM
    400 GB Seagate

    This is what Everest shows:
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH9 Family 2 port Serial ATA Storage
    Controller 1 - 2921
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH9 Family 2 port Serial ATA Storage
    Controller 2 - 2926
    Storage Controller AGW8464I IDE Controller
    Storage Controller GIGABYTE GBB36X Controller
    Storage Controller Microsoft iSCSI Initiator

    that storage controler name just seems like random letters to me(notice
    the change in name since the last boot) thanks agian,
    Cholupa

    If you look in the GA-P35-DS3R manual on page 8, the IDE interface is
    provided by the Gigabyte SATA2 controller, which is, in reality, the
    JMicron JMB363 chip <http://www.jmicron.com.tw/Product_JMB363.htm>.
    It's supposed to be compatible with the standard southbridge IDE
    interface, meaning that no special driver is needed for it to work.

    Set the mode of the GIGABYTE SATA2 interface to IDE in BIOS setup.
    Then install the motherboard_driver_sata_gb_sata2raid driver,
    selecting the IDE driver. Set the mode back to AHCI.

    Before:
    Storage:
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH8
    2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 2825
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH8
    4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 2820
    IDE Controller Standard Dual
    Channel PCI IDE Controller
    Storage Controller GIGABYTE
    GBB36X Controller
    Storage Controller Microsoft
    iSCSI Initiator

    After:
    Storage:
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH8
    2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 2825
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH8
    4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 2820
    IDE Controller JMB36X
    Standard Dual Channel PCIE IDE Controller
    Storage Controller GIGABYTE
    GBB36X Controller
    Storage Controller Microsoft
    iSCSI Initiator

    I cracked it. Looking around, I was able to eventually fin
    information similar to Andy's (thanks for your post!). It dawned on m
    that the card reader I had installed a few weeks previously accessed on
    of my IDE ports. So I disconnected the reader and uninstalled the id
    driver via task manager and voila! problem solved. I was able t
    upgradeand everything is working perfectly. I hope this helps som
    other people

    As an update to those of you, like I, that found this post via a Googl
    search for "Random IDE Controller:

    I was in the middle of upgrading Vista Home Premium 32bit to Windows
    when the installer told me I needed to update the drivers for my ID
    drive. Well, I don't have any IDE drives, and my IDE controller i
    disabled in bios, so I found that strange. Looking in device manager
    under Storage Controllers I found an IDE controller with a strange
    character name ADO4JJV IDE Controller. I deleted it, rebooted, and i
    returned with another random 8 character name. I did some Googl
    searches & found out that it was actually created by Alcohol 120%.
    uninstalled Alcohol & viola! It was gone immediately.

    So if you're having this problem, & you have Alcohol 120%, or Deamo
    Tools installed just uninstall before upgrading to Windows 7 & you'll b
    all set
