  • Motherboad: ASRock 970 Extreme3
  • CPU: FX-6300
  • HD: 2x 1.5GB SATA3
  • OS: Windows 7 Enterprise

The problem is that when I'm doing a fresh install of Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit, it does NOT recognize the AMD64 Raid Drivers (ahci64s.inf). It does recognize the 32bit just fine. I can install Windows 7 32bit (w/ RAID 0) just fine, but without the 64bit ahci drivers, I'm stuck. I really don't want to install the 32bit version of the OS.

Order of procedure:

  1. Go into RAID Bios (Ctrl-f)
  2. Define a logical drive (2x 1.5GB drives into 1 logical RAID 0 array)
  3. Boot from Win7 OS DVD
  4. When asked for drivers, browse to USB Flash Drive
  5. Select drivers
  6. AMD64 64bit drivers say there's no compatible hardware or drivers
  7. If I choose 32bit, it finds my logical drive array just fine, and I can install 32bit successfully, but 32bit is not what I want.

Is there ANYWAY to get this resolved? Does AMD have newest AMD64 ahci drivers?

Is the driver you use from the v3.3.1540.22 zip package at Asrock's site?
