You don't use a ide driver for a SATA controller.... you must have a SATA driver. Your first task at hand is to identify the SATA controller. I seriously doubt you will find sata drivers from microsoft, ati, or amd. perhaps Intel or Promise or any other company that produces sata controllers and sata chipsets.

This one should do the job:

To find make and model of pc hardware, EVEREST Home Edition is a free system diagnostics, system information program that will id most hardware onboard a mb. as well as the actual motherboard.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...-Edition.shtml

Alternate Everest download link: (offers 2 sites to dl program from)
http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...oad-16369.html

Run the program and then:

Click on Computer
Click on Summary
Right hand window (hardware) if the text is BLUE this is a link to the web site for that particular hardware.

If you have additional questions or need further help, please post a SUMMARY report from Everest.
