Windows 7: ATI AHCI Compatible RAID Driver

ATI AHCI Compatible RAID Driver

Hello,

I'm trying to install the Windows 7 32-Bit upgrade on my Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop and I get an error that says that I need to update my ATI AHCI Compatible RAID Driver. I went into the Update Device Drivers as suggested in the instructions and tried to upgrade that driver, but it says I have the latest driver for it. So I tried restarting my laptop and ran the upgrade setup again, and got the same error message.

Any ideas on what I need to do to get it to upgrade? I tried searching all over and can not find a newer version than what I have (2.5.1540.48).

Thanks,
Mike

Mike did you try to get the drivers from Dell?

Go here,

Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM

Select Motherboard/Integrated Video Drivers and under Individual Drivers (Motherboard/Chipset) select Windows 7 (32 bit). One word of caution right from the download page,

Quote:
Warning: This driver does not provide custom configurations used in OEM systems and is recommended for use with retail AMD motherboards only. Installing an incorrect AHCI driver may cause problems with your hard drive including data loss.
If it works OK for you, great. If not get in touch with Dell and ask them if and when they are going to have their own (will still be the same driver, just needs to modified by them to work on their computers)

Which one should I download? The RAID or AHCI?

I was told by a buddy of mine that I could try doing a clean install of 7. The download does have an option for a "custom" install which I'm guessing is a clean install because it says that it will wipe clean all my files. I also have the back up disks coming soon so I could always do a clean install with those. Would that work?

AHCI.

All the custom install does is show which drivers are installed and which can/will be updated.

Thanks, I'll try that over the weekend and see if it works. If it doesn't work, how do I revert back to the driver that is running right now?
