Yesterday I formatted this system and put XP pro with SP2 back on. On my system there are 2 RAID controllers: one by VIA and one Promise controller. The Promise controller installed without a problem, but the VIA one didn’t. Windows keeps detecting a network controller (there is only one NIC in my system but that one is installed and working properly) that it can’t install. I guess that this NIC it detecs is my VIA RAID controller, but I can’t install the drivers (not the ones that came with the board nor the ones I got from VIA’s website). It’s not that big a deal as I don’t use that controller, but it still stinks ;).
Anybody an idea how I can force Windows to recognize the VIA RAID controller?
My mainboard (with everythin on board, except for the VGA) is a MSI K8TNEO FIS2R.
