After building a system with a second-hand EVGA 680i (with the nForce 6 chipset) and some other parts I installed Windows 7 and the nVidia drivers recommended by their website. Filling in the form led me to a file called "15.58-nforce-winvista-win7-64bit-international-whql", which I downloaded and ran. It seemed to install everything, and the system runs well enough, but when I check the system info it doesn't show all of the drivers as having been installed. Specifically, the SATA driver is not installed. Yes, the system has a SATA drive attached. There are no IDE drives in the system. Even the DVD is a SATA model. Yet the IDE driver IS installed... So, if this is the right driver package for this board, it should have installed both, shouldn't it? Or if it's not the right package, it should have given an error message and refused to install anything, right? So how did I get this weird partly installed situation? Should I run it again? Should I get something else from some other location?
