I'm trying to install windows 8 to my gigabyte MA74GM-S2 2.0 motherboard system and onto a patriot pyro SSD. I am using the ahcix64s driver version 3.1.1540.127 from gigabyte's website. I found a 3.1.1540.151 version on the AMD chipset drivers page ( but this also shows a 2009 copyright date in the file.

Has anyone had luck installing windows 8 release preview with this driver on their computers? Is there a beta available to test?

Windows 8 includes AMD drivers and should have no problem seeing your drives. On my machines, Windows 8 Setup is even capable of seeing drives that are in RAID.
