Windows 7: WOWEE! Moved Win7-64 to new system with no problems!

Intel's Rapid Storage Technology driver can help improve overall SATA performance and it may even make Windows startup a little faster:

Of course, more can be found here:


Or, you can also just use the CD that came with the motherboard.
I fear I may have been over-zealous in my attempt to get the proper chipset drivers. I did some Googling and though I found the proper drivers for the Z77 chipset, but it appears I may have installed something else. I did also install the 2 links above and now my Device Manager looks like this:

Attachment 254043

So I'm thinking I should remove all the entries referring to C216 chipset and Xeon processor. Not sure what to do about the IDE ATA/ATAPI controller - if I delete that will my system be able to access disks?
No, everything looks perfect. I see the "Intel(R) 7 Series etc...", and that's what I was looking for. So, you're all set. The Xeon entries are normal; I have them too.

You're good to go.
