They are nforce4 drivers, but I was unable to install XP without loading them from the floppy. I tried during the install of x64 and it said they were not compatible with x64 and that I should download new drivers from the site.
I know a bit about nlite (not much) but am not understanding how adding SP2 to my XP Pro cd will do anything when I am trying to install XP x64. I have the sata drivers for my drive that work with XP pro. They just don't work with the 64 bit x64. Could you elaborate?
I know, I mean I bought the board maybe 2 months ago--so even if it's not cutting edge I'd imagine they'd ship the cd with the latest drivers to support x64 since it's made for a 64 bit processor. I think I'm going to contact gigabyte and see if they can shed some light.
I did try the gigabyte site and I did not find the drivers--and I read every single one of those options. Sometimes I wonder if I'm blind to these things. Maybe the wife's doing voodoo on me because she doesn't want me messing up the pc.
Mfarley, assuming the drivers worked, would it be possible for you to e-mail me the SATA x64 drivers you got from Gigabyte support? Their web site is throwing errors when I try to request support, and I'm desperate. I have the same board as you (Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9) and I'm at wits' end trying to get XP Pro x64 installed on my Maxtor SATA hard drive. I've been at for hours now and I'm about ready to buy a G5. My email: doug /at/ fouldsroberts /dot/ ca. Many, many thanks for any help you might be able to provide. In the meanwhile I'll keep trying to get someone at Gigabyte support to help me.
Anyone get this to work yet? The Boot disk .exe seems to have missing ".cat" files?
Appears to be some of the files from within the x64 Chipset driver download?
[How will we get on with "legacy-free" (no floppy) system?]
I have just joined today and I have no experience in online forums but I say hello. My main reason for coming online is I have the GA-K8NF motherboard and I am trying to install Windows 64 but I can't find a sata driver that works. Google led me to this site.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
