Good day all .
I read various posts on different area's regarding chipset installation and drivers
Some info : motherboard is Microstar p45 platinum gamer series.
it comes with 2 sets of cd's #1 for win xp intel chipset drivers&utilities disk.
#2 chipset disk for vista.
question #1 does windows 7 64bit (pro) contain the sata drivers and all the utilities for install ? or do i need to utilize the preinstall of the f6 and make a install floppy? msi has a section for downloads .
I have searched for the uptodate drivers listed in the arcive section where my board is now listed.
I have downloaded all the drivers and a floppy f6 creater to install these files
I am a bit confused as to how i am going to install win 7 on this system .
I may go with a xp/7 duel boot .
I want to add raid 5 after 7 install and i know xp could not see anything beyond raid 0 or 1.
looking for some advice before i start the process.
I hope the thread title is better this time.
if the install sequence works the way i want it to go ; perhaps i can create a tuit.
thanks for everyone's help .
its always appreciated
