    Did you read the warning about how to install on raid?

    From what I read you have to extract the drivers then to use the F6 method to install.

    I am not sure these drivers even installed on my system as I can not find the entry in add/remove or the driver files on the disk.

    Wouldn't that mean I have to reinstall go through Vista installation procedure again?

    Installed on Vista 64, all three drivers. I did the install from my Desktop, not during the Vista install process.

    System seems to load a lot faster now. No problems so far using Raid 0.

    Did you do it via setup or through Device Manager "Update Drivers"?

    Installed these on my AMD Nforce 4 SLi Deluxe... doesn't seem faster so far. But I didn't watch it boot up, so it may have been faster as you said Luna.

    Are you sure the drivers installed?

    On my system I have no entry in add/remove. I have checked in device manager and all the drivers are still the Microsoft ones.

    I got the ethernet, SMBus and SATA drivers installed on my nForce 4 SLi board as well. Haven't really noticed any performance difference, but I had to re-activate Windows because of a "hardware change."

    I installed from the setup wizard.
    After the install it made me reboot. Once it came back up it said it re-detected my RAID 0 array, probably because of the new drivers. After another reboot all was well.

    Mine's fine, no RAID though.

    Didn't really notice any speed increase.
