730x Windows 7 install - unknown device


Just did a clean install of windows 7 64 bit on my 730x, and got all drivers sorted apart from one.. :-(

In the device manager I have the dreaded yellow ! next to "mass storage controller" Any suggestions on what that is... and where to get a windows 7 driver for it?

I have already installed the latest intel matrix storage drivers and that didnt work....

Help please :-)

Same problem here, i also installed the CAB-200 driver for the media card reader and that didn't fix it either, not sure how to fix this....

Re: 730x Windows 7 install - unknown device

That is strange, I did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro on my 730x and it found everything on its own and I have no exclamations in my device manager. I did have my computer connected to my network during the install and it may have gone out and found the needed drivers. What I am showing listed for Storage controller is "Silicom Image Sil 3132 SATALink Controller" version, Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatability Publisher.

I would guess that you need the chipset driver to fix that problem. You can use the Vista x64 drivers and they will work.
