Tomorrow, my new harddrive arrived. I put it in, assigned it to my RAID array, formatted, partitioned and installed XP. Everything went fine.
Upon installing the NForce2 drivers, I noticed that the sounddrivers were not installed, because Windows couldn’t detect any audio device. Of course, my onboard sound (NVidia Soundstorm) was enabled. The only thing that Windows found was an unknown Ethernet controller. After some hassling around I found that this unknown Ethernet controller was my Soundstorm chip.
Whatever I tried, I couldn’t get the onboard sound to work.
As I didn’t have too much time, I decided to put in my old SB Live once again. Booted and guess what: Windows finds both the SB Live and the SoundStorm chip. The drivers of both installed fine and even the unkown Ethernet controller is gone. Both soundcards work like a charm now.
My question: how can this happen? I suppose this an error of MS, right?
