Updating ata controller for windows macedonian dating in australia
I think the date is when the driver was first released and does not change when the versions change.Also I think the 2nd controller is ASMedia chip so that is probably why it did not update as it has its own driver.Not sure which drivers I need now since I thought windows is supposed to install the right ones on its own. That's why I'm thinking of updating my BIOS Drivers.
Hi Greg, don't worry , my SATA drivers are from 2006 as well , actually i have a ton of drivers showing 2006 and device manager does indeed say they are the latest and the best choice for the system lol.
I had to manually update the driver in device manager and point it to where the installer extracted the drivers.
Hi all, I noticed after a clean install of Win 10 Pro that in the Device Manager I had two "Standard SATA AHCI Controller" entries that showed the driver dated in 2006. So I downloaded the latest version of SATA drivers at the Asus ROG site for my motherboard.
ALSO: The driver installed "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" program. And no, you do not need "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" program, it is designed to show you the status of your drives it is not essential, in addition it runs as a startup item.
If you uninstall it, the updated SATA AHCI drivers will remain, at least this is what happened with my systems. So I downloaded the latest version of SATA drivers at the Asus ROG site for my motherboard.In all cases, before updating SATA drivers, Chipset driver must be updated first and reboot.
