I've been screwing with this W7 install (64bit) for FAR too long now. I boot to the Windows installer, it immediately asks for a driver disk for the controller, and search as I might, I cannot find a compatible one ANYWHERE.

Do any of you have ANY idea where I can find the appropriate drivers to allow me to install this damned operating system? Alternatively, is there a way to hack a Vista driver to let me do it? Anything? I'm at my whits end.

Thanks in advance!!!

Raid Controller?

The only one available is for XP 64bit, might work, you might have to hack the inf file.

Raid driver XP 64bit

If the driver is not "signed" then you'd be out of luck. My understanding is that all drivers for Windows 7 need to be signed to install on Windows 7. (Possibly one reason why VIA did not release a version of this driver for Vista & Windows 7?) – irrational John Jun 24 '10 at 22:37
Thanks irrational John, you are correct 64bit demands signed drivers. I guess the motherboard is just too old for W7. : -( – Moab Jun 26 '10 at 17:04
