Thanks for sharing for others!

Do you know the required edits to do this for X79 and Z77 chipsets, if so please share and thanks in advanced?

I do not know exactly about your chipsets, but I would look up the PCI Vendor and Device ID at BIOS bootup. These are the IDs that the driver disk needs. For Intel it seems they always use the iastor.sys driver for any chipset. So I would at least give it a try and exchange the Device ID of 2923 with yours. You could ignore the strings for testing and only edit the 2923 to your Device ID.

Ahh ok, well vendor is 8086 Intel of course :D  And device ID for X79 is 2826

Thanks for the info, I'll test this out sometime soon when I have time to play!
