Hi, I noticed that there are new drivers and a new Bios posted on the SI site. Download the first file here http: Have you updated and do any changes need to be made to the inf file? Browse and use the b????. For the driver, I modified the INF files a bit.

ValDar can you help? It doesn’t seem safe to do so, but I tried it, and my card is upgraded. Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds. Well I did a little light surgery 2105sa replaced the Adaptec sa with a generic Bafo vintage sata controller and low and behold it works with both Asaptec and XP.

To update your BIOS, you will need the latest driver. Will continue working on this and let you know if I figure it out.

Hi DragonMaster and thank you for keeping this thread alive. I have installed many drivers in my life but none has been more problematic then this adaptec sa and Vista.
