Are XP 32bit and 64bit RAID drivers the same?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am tring to install the raid drivers on XP x64. When loading windows, it had a message that the disk didn't have the apropiate drivers on it. I tried again with a 32bit version and it worked. I may have made a mistake when picking which driver. Should there be a different driver for 64bit?

Also, how do I know which driver on the disk to install? Is it a siple case of choosing the one labeled RAID ICH9R (or whatever it is called) I think there was more than one, though. (can't see now, at work)

I am going to try to install it again, just not sure if it should work the same as 32.

No 64-bit and 32-bit driver is the same.

You are going to need a 64-bit driver.. which some companys never even put out for XP 64-bit because it was never a retail OS.

If your going 64-bit, I suggest vista. It won't even need your raid drivers most likely because it has 99.9% of them built in.

No. One is x86 and one is x64. The CPU itself works in different ways in each mode, so drivers are drastically different.

Yeah, but there is no free 120 day trial of Vista 64 I am one of the many who is hopefully awaiting their free copy of Vista from the feedback program and was planning on using the free trial until that came. I guess I will stick with 32bit atm.

Can I get the driver right from Intel? Will it work or does it need to be supported by the mobo manufacturer as well?

Vista can be free too! But I can't tell you how.
