What to update?

Recommended Posts

I am currently having some issue with installing Windows Vista because it wont recognize my hard drives. I was able to install about a month ago and been using it. I tried to reformat last night and it wont recognize my hard drive. The Vista install gave me "Windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation". I did some research and found this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927520. Seem like i have to update my hard drive controller. It was working why wouldnt it work now???? Weird.

 

I have a DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-DR motherboard. What should i update to update my hard drive controller? Should i update the BIOS or the nForce chipset? If the nForce chipset do i obtain it from DFI or Nvidia?

 

Final question - does updating a chipset work like BIOS where it will be store on the hardware level or software (in OS)?

 

Thanks for any helps.

Are these SATA drives, and are you using the drivers on floppy disk when prompted, F6, during Windows installation?

These are SATA drives and i am not loading any drivers. I believe F6 is when install XP. I am installing Win Vista, it does have a spot to load drivers during setup but i didnt do it. I was able to install before so i dont think it is a driver issue.
