Asus P67 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 257

i use the overall switch myself, as ive found cases where there have been CLSID data updated in the .inf that didnt update on the system.

Ive personally never run into a case where it has replaced the AHCI drivers and bombed out the RST update.

That's weird.

Let me just confirm, you're saying that you ALWAYS use the overall switch even from the very start (fresh install of Windows)? And you can update/install the RST drivers normally without any hickups?

yuppers...

just did it after my last post to verify...

on a fresh windows install, i usually just use whats on the CD (without the overall switch) and update from that point.

If i had to venture a guess, id say that the .inf files people are using has a bogus CLSID for the controller which is why RST is bombing out...

for example, ive noticed the inf uses a "6 port AHCI Sata Controller" name while rst uses just plain "AHCI Sata Controller".

So using the latest version of the INF Utility with the overall switch is the best recommendation to do this even on a fresh Windows install?

I dont see why not

if you have to manually change the ACHI driver, no big deal...like i said, ive never run into it, but others have...

just change it, then run the RST installer again...

its rare that they ever change anything in the inf anyway...i think for P67 theve made one change since october 2010 and all they did was change the name string of one of the devices, it doesn't change functionality...

If you've been mucking about with the system drivers (the PCIe drivers comes to mind from a few pages back), then its a good idea to start fresh by overwriting the CLSIDs with the originals and put it back to the way intel intended..

its mostly irrelevant on a new install, as there inst anything there to overwrite to begin with..

Hi all.
I own an ASUS P8P67 PRO REV 3.1 - BIOS VERSION 2001
I've recently discovered that a similar board (P8Z68-V PRO), with, I suppose, an identical asmedia usb 3.0 chipset, have an updated firmware version for the asmedia chipset.
I've downloaded the USB 3.0 Boost Full Package Version v1.00.05 (taken from P8Z68-V PRO page): when lauched, it says I have the latest usb 3.0 driver & the latest ASUS USB 3.0 BOOST installed, but it ALSO ask to upgrade usb 3.0 firmware...
Please, anyone knows if firmware should be updated or not?
As I said, both MBs have an identical asmedia usb 3.0 chipset, so..

Thanks.

I hope somebody can explain why the guy at NBR is having weird results with the overall switch and you guys aren't having one.

Its not the overall swiitch hes having problems with, its supposed to reset the CSLIDs of the Sata ports.

Its running the RST to replace with new drivers hes having issues with.

But why don't you guys experience that same problem?
