    Did you install the chipset driver package and it didn't include the SATA/RAID drivers? I'm not saying that it should. I don't really know so I'm asking if they weren't there.

    Because I didn't see any separate SATA/RAID drivers at the Toshiba website, I was wondering if they didn't come as a package with the chipset drivers. Probably not, but I didn't know for sure so that's why I asked.

    Perhaps you might find the SATA/RAID drivers at the Intel site.
