Every time I boot up my Windows XP box it says it detected new hardware an IDE controller and several IDE channels and every time the new hardware wizard pops up.
I'm 100% sure I'm not installed any new hardware in my computer. Device manager does not show the question mark on any devices. Every device is working properly.
The device it found is an Intel IDE controller (8086 vendor id) and (27DF device id.)
I tried to find driver for it. Apparently many sites claim to have it but they either want to charge me for it or the downloaded package does not contain the driver I need.
How can I prevent my box from asking for drivers every time. Is it safe to disable those devices it complains about?
