do i need these motherboard drivers

  sunnystaines 21:29 28 Sep 2009

not using RAID, have SATA as primary hdd and an EIDE as secondary hdd.

In the list of drivers for motherboard [MSI X58 PLATNIUM] are various drivers for RAID which I have left out but do I need to install a driver for AHCI or is this RAID related too, I have read about AHCI by using google but cannot make semse of it.


JMicron JMB36x IDE Drivers (including floppy driver) do not have a floppy socket on the board do I need this as well?

Yes, install AHCI as it enables systems such as NCQ.

A very quick check on google indicates that JMB36x is RAID related so no need for that.
