PCI BUS MASTERING

by TheChas In reply to PCI BUS MASTERING

Depending on how you have the MB and your drives set-up, you need up to 3 different drivers installed for the IDE.
So, it depends on which IDE buss the device is for.
For the "standard" IDE buss, I would download the latest version of the AMD driver directly from AMD.

For the Promise ATA100 and RAID buss, I would download the files from Giga-Byte.
The URL is

If you are not sure which buss is missing the driver, click on view devices by connection in device manager.

I must have been looking crosseyed at the Giga-Byte page. Your "standard" IDE driver is from VIA not AMD.

Usually, the driver on VIA's site will be newer than the one at the MB mfg.

However, since this is a "hybrid" design (the main chips of the chipset are from different mfgs) MB, you might want to use only the drivers from Giga-Byte.

The web posted drivers are often several revisions newer than what is on the MB CD.

You might also check for a BIOS upgrade, as they may have discovered a problem after the MB was released, and fixed it with a BIOS upgrade.
