Windows 7: IDE ATA controller driver

24 Jul 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
IDE ATA controller driver

I formatted the hard drive on an HP laptop, and installed Windows from a Microsoft installation disk rather than the factory recovery. On the old installation in Device Manager, under IDE ATA controller it said ATA channel 0 & 1. On the new installation it says IDE channel/IDE channel. I am wondering if there is any loss of speed or functionality because of this.

The HP site does not have a driver for either the chipset or ATA controller. And Windows Update has not presented any driver updates for this either.

Any thoughts on this?

Might enable AHCI controller after install?
