My Specs are:
Intel DP35DP MB
Quad core Q8200 2.33GHZ CPU
2x1Gb HyperX Kingston RAM
EZCool 1200w PSU
XFX GTX 295 Graphics card

1st problem:
My MB Management Engine Interface Drivers are incompatible and even when I try to run them in compatibility mode they still do not work.

2nd Problem:
The new OS is not picking up one of my WD 1Tb HDD. It shows in the bios, and it shows in the device manager but nowhere else. I think that this may have something to do with the fact that there is no PCI simple communications controller installed, and I cannot find that anywhere.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with these issues.

can you be specific on the HDD types. IDE-SATA-eSATA-Raid.
are the HDDs formatted. Apparently the 1x Seagate 320GB (OS) is.
If they are shown in Disk Mgnt that indicates they are (reasonably) in good shape. you might post a snip of Disk Mgnt.

Intel information They do not plan to make this MOBO Win 7 compliant.

Hey snuffy. The problem has been fixed. Just to let you know, all drives are sata and have all been formatted at one stage and now contain data. I appreciate the assistance though.
