Hi Sparatan117,

I've also got a P6T Deluxe. Along with a missing RAID Controller (although below, under Storage controllers, I list an Intel ICH10R SATA RAID Controller), I have seven System Interrupt Controller drivers shown missing below the RAID Controller. I've checked the ASUS website but haven't made a positive ID of anything for this.

Who made the System Interrupt Controller drivers on your machine?

I used the system disk that came with the motherboard, just pop it in, and click on each instance of the System Interrupt Controller and UPDATE DRIVER then browse your computer and point it to the CD/DVD drive and make sure you include subfolders and let Windows 7 help itself.

The unknown RAID controller might well be the Marvell controller which Asus included on your motherboard. Personally if nothing is attached to it I would disable it in BIOS.

That seems to be a painless procedure. I previously was concerned that if I installed a file containing drivers, I'd be replacing good ones with possibly less-effective ones (for example replacing my Intel RAID drivers with the Marvell variety). However, your way is better as I designate where the driver gets loaded and won't be replacing a driver that is used and appears elsewhere. I'll give it a try. Thanks.

You're welcome.

I wouldn't "Force" Windows 7 to use a driver, but it's certainly pretty much always worth putting the Motherboard System CD in and letting Windows 7 search the CD for the drivers for itself. It will look for driver that are signed and are written for that particular device ID.

Of course Windows 7 is in Beta, so there is a chance anything could happen at any time, but isn't that the joy of testing it?!?!

Hey guys I just bought the ASUS P6T normal version and I have 2 74gb raptors i want to set to raid 0 and install windows 7. The memory will arrive in about 1 hr and I need to make sure windows 7 wont give me any raid issues. Let me know where to go if I need to do anything different than install windows 7 straight from the disk for my P6T hopefully i wont need a floppy or usb drive for the ICH10R dirvers.

Thanks!

Hi Iocco187. I'm no expert, but I just installed a Promise TX2300 RAID card. All I had to do was insert the Promise CD at the appropriate time, and Windows found the drivers on it's own.. Hope this helps in some way! I'd hoped that this would increase my HDD score on the WEI, but it remains the same at 5.9. I will assume that performance IS increased though.
