Hi, drake008 and Dark Mantis,
I assume you have 64bit Windows 7 ...like me too
I saw on this link : http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2638#driver
SATA RAID ver 18.104.22.168
GIGABYTE SATA2 Preinstall driver (For AHCI / RAID Mode)
I do not know the exact version of your motherboard: rev. 2.1 rev. 2.0 rev. 1.1 or rev. 1.0. but somehow it does not change the fact there seems to be actually an update to do.
I have not mentioned in my signature but I have since August 2007 a GA-P35-DQ6 (rev. 1.0), there is also a rev. 1.1. (Sorry, Dark Mantis
just a little suprise )
I also view the following link http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2637#driver
the SATA RAID ver.22.214.171.124
Until this year I was not concerned by RAID mode drivers.
But with all files in my few hard drives, I am interested to buy such hardware like SATA3 drive, RAID5, SSD.
To answer the question from Drake008 (and me) I have searched the internet about JMicron.
I found this website http://www.jmicron.com/Driver.htm
More specifically it http://ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Controller/Windows/
I find in this place 3 files :
I see by reading the file ReleaseNote.txt, there were 9
versions since the one posted on the Gigabyte website.
Also found in http://ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/SATA_Controller/Option_ROM/
Many files ...view a picture.
So Drake008 said ... ''with the latest Intel OROM for AHCI and RAID''.
Is he referring to this type of folder (Option ROM) and files? Or just about SATA RAID drivers? Or the both (Option ROM and Raid drivers) ?
I am confused, because I never installed these drivers for my computer.
But sometimes I'm good to find the right thing. If not often.
I am confused, because is not clear for me, because my English is not very well.
Dark is what meant the Bios F4 for their own mobo and by extension then Bios F9 to my GA-P35-DQ6 must also be an upgrade?
So I would appreciate clarification on what it is.
And if the links and files that I found on Internet can resolve the situation described by Drake008.
PS I have a same chip on picture but the difference is the Number ID : 0642 V 112360022 on my motherboard.
