I don't know how to install them, rember? Intel installation chipset utility doesn't work.

Have you tried installing them in compatibility mode for Vista?

In compatibility mode they are installed. Now I have no more undetected SM bus, but the problem with pagefile drive list is still there...

I repost the screenshoots from the new install:

monaco, to save you from trouble , I should tell you that this forum supports uploading images on posts...scroll down and find "manage attachments" then browse for your files and click upload. Close the upload window and you're done.

Since imageshack is experiencing troubles right now and I cannot see your screenshots...

indeed he has! and damn it's a big one!

Let me ask you though...all these happen after a clean install?

did you install anything at startup in all cases?

I'd go with Mr Grim for chipset/IDE/SATA drivers...

Also, if your mobo has let's say 4sata slots, and you have connected the sata cable on pair no2,slot1, connect it to pair no1,slot1 and boot to see ...

Maybe you've are through the Jmicron controller, while you could connect to a more standard controller on your board.

It's a fresh install, i unchecked the option just before the screenshot, the page file you see is the default one!

The J-micron controller is disabled via bios, the hard drives are connected to the intel controller port.

I used imageshack for the images to have thumbnails insted the big ones, can you see them now?

That may be, but at least you have one and that's all the virtual Memory you need anyway, why do you feel you need more than that?

No i want to set manually the pagefile on a dedicated partion on the other hard disk and disable than on C:

The real problem is that this window doesn't work: the drive list is blank and i can't do anything.

Do you know if there is a way to set these things via registry?
