@ all users with an nForce Chipset system:

Update of the start post
Changelog:

  • Updated:
    • 32/64bit "Latest nForce Driverpacks for Win7-10" (now v10.8 with the latest NVIDIA HDAudio driver, which supports Win7-10)
    • 32/64bit "Special nForce RAID Driverpacks for Win7-10" (now v10.8 with the latest NVIDIA HDAudio driver, which supports Win7-10)

Thanks to our Forum member @onuracengiz, who convinced me to update the NVIDIA HDAudio drivers within the related Driverpacks.
Any feedback is much appreciated.

Good luck with the updated NVIDIA nForce chipset drivers!

Hello,

I am sorry for jumping here, but I thought perhaps here could be the answer to a problem I am encountering.
I have an Asus Striker II Formula with nvidia chipset 780i.
It was running on a Win7 pro N that I installed a long time ago before updating it two years ago to Win 10 pro N on an SSD.

Since the Win10 update I got a lot of random blue screens and it became impossible to update from Windows update 1809 (if automatic updates it fails and if manual one with USB drive I get error 0x8007025D).
Yesterday I decided (stupidly) to install a fresh copy of Win10 update 2004 on the SSD through another computer (where I could test such an installation and boot without problem) but when I put this new installation on the computer with the striker formula 2 motherboard I get a black screen with an endless bleeping cursor.

I am no advanced user and to be honest I do not understand much about “RAID” and things as such, but I do seem to recall many years ago when I installed the windows 7 I might have had incorporated some sata controller to the iso of windows...

I now see your forum and I wanted to ask you if you think that adding those "Special 64bit nForce RAID Driverpack for Win7-10" to my window bootable usb key and install windows on the SSD may solve my black screen issue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.

@RonnyD:
Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't care about systems with a NVIDIA nForce chipset and vice versa NVIDIA doesn't offer suitable nForce drivers, which are working flawlessly with all their chipsets by using the latest Windows Operating Systems.
A successful integration of the "Special 64bit nForce RAID Driverpack for Win7-10" is not possible, because
a) the installer needs an already running OS and
b) the package contains drivers, which were modified by me (only WHQL certified third party drivers are accepted by the Win10 Setup).

It is no surprise for me, that you could not boot into your SSD, whose OS was installed while being connected to another PC with other hardware and/or other configuration.
If you want to do a fresh install of Win10 onto your current PC, you have to re-do it from scratch. When you come to the point, where the Win10 Setup asks you, where the OS shall be installed, you should let the Setup delete all shown partitions of the target SSD and create a new partition for the OS with an appropriate size.
As long as your on-board NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller is running in "IDE" mode, I don't expect any problem during the OS installation. So you should enter the "Advanced" BIOS section, check the SATA mode setting of your mainboard's Storage Controller and change it, if it should not be "IDE". The worst case would be an existing nForce RAID array, because you will not get access to its data, if the nForce SATA Controller is running in IDE mode. To be able to use the SSDs/HDDs, which were members of a RAID array, on a system running in IDE mode, you have to break the RAID array (all data will get lost by doing it).

Good luck and Happy New Year!

Thank you for your kind answer!

I will try to redo it from the current PC with the bios with IDE mode enabled and all RAID settings disabled (as in the pictures). I am worried though, as this was my original configuration and no matter how many times I tried I was always ending at some point in the installation process with an 0x8007025D error code.

I do have two partition on this ssd though and was only formatting the one where I wanted to install Win10. So I will try again deleting both and creating a new one. Fingers crossed!

Happy end-of-the-year holidays to you too!

Hello,

I just wish to thank you for your advices. I tried again installing, this time suppressing all other partitions on the SSD, and it worked.

I still have some random bluescreens and I cannot make any update with windows update (error 0x80096010), but at least I can use my computer and have a more recent version of Windows than previously.

Hello Fernando, Can you please post a link for the most current updated driver files the one from October is no longer working and I can't locate the ones you mentioned in December. Hope this will fix my freezing problem. Computer is now getting slower over hours of use or just flat out freezing while still maintaining mouse and or keyboard function (USB wireless Mouse and Keyboard) Also still having issue of screen going black with computer on and running requiring a reboot.

Hi, will these drivers work for my ASUS K50IP (MCP70 chipset, from my memory)?

Problems recently started, I want to reinstall Windows10

Hello from Russia :)

V10.6.0.24 @ 2017/01/06, but V11.1.0.43 @ 2010/04/09...

Hi! I have an "Alienware M17x R1" with nforce, but can't install any of these packs (optimized and raid)! Always had an error after the OS loading. Tried manual and automatic nvidia software installation.

@ALX: Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
Which OS are you running or want to Install and which are the HardwareIDs of the on-board nForce SATA RAID Controller (right-click onto it > "Properties" > "Details" > "Property" > "HardwareIDs")?
Regards
