for n Force4 AMD chipset users, who prefer or need WHQL certified drivers(especially for/after a fresh OS installation onto an n Force4 RAID system) Users with an n Force4 RAID system will run into problems, when they try to get any Windows OS from Vista up installed, because neither the in-box nor the latest n Force Sata RAID drivers, which were offered by NVIDIA until 2010, do work with "LEGACY" mode RAID configurations (note: "LEGACY" mode RAID systems have the ability to support Pata RAID and Sata RAID arrays simultaneously).This is the reason why I still offer these special WHQL signed Vista/Win7/Win8 driverpacks for users with an n Force4 chipset mainboard. Here are the download links to my "NForce4 WHQL Driverpacks" (with multilingual installer): The latest Windows Operating Systems from Win8 up have a feature named "Driver Signature Enforcement", which does not allow to get any driver installed, which has no valid digital signature.Since any modification of the associated INF file automaticly breaks the digital signature of the driver, there is only one way to get a "modded" driver installed onto Win8/8.1/10 without the need of disabling the automaticly active "Driver Signature Enforcement": The modded driver has to be digitally signed by a trustworthy person or Company.
Thanks for your time :-)I installed the last official WHQL drivers from NVIDIA which are v15.27 for Vista, and proceeded to enable the RAID mode for SATA in the BIOS. I also want to know if the disks must be identical for RAID 0, because mine aren't :-s. I want to ask if this drivers works with windows 8.1?After I did this I was unable to boot thesystem drive, but I managed to fix this by disabling RAID mode in the BIOS. I have an ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS with n Force®650i SLI & n Force®570 SLI chipset. I read on some forums that I need to enable RAID mode for SSD. I have also setup a RAID 0 in bios for other two disks in striped mode, but in windows I see one big HDD NDIVIA JBOD 931,52G, and I don´t know if it is normal or not. (old drivers report controler error, and causes BSOD).I am assuming I need to enable RAID mode in the BIOS *before* I install Windows and install the drivers as well. Now I have Windows 7, and it work good, no error, but I want to know if it work with windows 8.1 or windows 8.4. I downloaded 'Non-AHCI n Force Performance Packs for Vista/Win7'.5.That means, that they are not suitable for the integration into a Win8/10 image and cannot be loaded during the OS installation.Here are my "mod+signed" n Force driverpacks for Vista/Win7 resp. I see this: "Fernandos Actual n Force Driverpack for XP 64bit v9.0.7z (18.4 MB)"Hi Fernando!
Win7-10:recommended for all n Force users from NF4 up, who are running their system in RAID mode, best choice for n Force4 and MCP51/55/61(probably the n Force RAID driver combination with the best performance)Here are the download links to these driverpacks: First, thanks mate - bloody champ for all this info. I see this: "Fernandos Actual n Force Driverpack for XP 64bit v9.0.7z (18.4 MB)"Section 2 above (Actual n Force Drivers for Vista/Win7) x64 download link points to the XP x64 download. I want to thank you all the hard work you've put into this project of yours, it is extremely helpful and your knowledge of storage subsystems is impressive.Second - quick question - Section 2 above (Actual n Force Drivers for Vista/Win7) x64 download link points to the XP x64 download. I have searched the forum for the answers to some questions I have but can't seem to find them, so here it goes: I own a DFI Lan Party SLI-DR Expert mainboard with the n Force4 SLI AMD (CK804) chipset and I am wondering if it does support AHCI mode and indeed if so I would like to buy an SSD.There is no mention of AHCI in my BIOS but there is an option to enable the Media Shield RAID ROM, which I am guessing supports AHCI as part of the Media Shield controller? My previous BIOS configuration was not optimal as I had my HDD plugged into the n Force SATA-II port but I had not enabled RAID mode and Windows was using the in-box storage driver whichwas running in ATA mode so I was not getting NCQ or AHCI at all! I installed the last official WHQL drivers from NVIDIA which are v15.27 for Vista, and proceeded to enable the RAID mode for SATA in the BIOS.After I did this I was unable to boot thesystem drive, but I managed to fix this by disabling RAID mode in the BIOS.I am assuming I need to enable RAID mode in the BIOS *before* I install Windows and install the drivers as well.So to clarify, could you tell me if I do need to enable the Media Shield RAID mode in my BIOS in order for AHCI to work, if I need to make them part of an array or can I just leave them as JBOD,and what would be the best driver pack (from either yourself or NVIDIA) to get the best performance, stability and AHCI support. In bios when I look at aray, it show Striping Mode.3.
