Firmware flashes/chipset drivers

With all the problematic nvidia and intel ide chipset drivers, I would think
flashing in safe mode(PIO) to be a given!

Use the default microsoft drivers and the problems are gone.

I have gathered that thru personal experience and 6 months of reading posts and
troubleshooting, seems like this forum is the lone voice in the wilderness!
Thanks for confirming tho, kinda hard to get people to roll back to default, they have no concept of the problem.
