  1. I'm concerned what is causing this, I believe it has somethign to do with the ata100 controller on my motherboard. Apparently I've been getting this for over a month now and have noticed no adverse side effects but I dont' like seeing warnings.

    I'd guess there's no updates available for it then as it suggests?

    Well I'm not exactly sure what it is that needs to be updated.
    I clicked the link like it suggests, it send information to microsoft :rolleyes: and then it came up with nothing, no additional information avaiable is what it said I believe.

    Ahhh right. Well, basically its suggesting that you should update the BIOS for your ATA controller, shouldn't be a problems if its a seperate RAID one, if not just check your manufacturer for a new BIOS for the system, or perhaps even installing newer chipset drivers'll remove it.
    Doesn't seem like there is a "real" problem though, so you could just ignore it either.

    I hope so commander, for you sake....

    my advise, if all is working well, is to ignore it.

    i have upgraded firmware here and lived to regret it.

    I have also upgraded firmware on SCSI cd-rw and its never been the same....

    ....if its not broken, don't fix it.....

    I strongly believe in that philosophy.. But I certainly don't practice it. :)

    I can't think of any reason it would complain about your firmware, unless your drivers require a more recent firmware upgrade or your SCSI is not totally ACPI compliant. If the latter were the case though, you'd probably get a nice box of chocolates with a card attatched from your computer that reads, "ERROR: DRIVE_UNBOOTABLE. PLEASE REINSTALL WINDOWS YOU MEAN, MEAN PERSON."
