maybe I read this wrong, why would I want the pci card (btw, my pci slots are full), when this reads like the intel download will solve the 137GB problem. I'm no computer expert, so perhaps I am missing something here.In order for you system to recognize more than 137 GB you will need to utilize one of the following recommended solutions:
-------If you have a motherboard that has a Intel chipset (810, 810E, 810E2, 815, 815, 815E, 815EP, 815P, 820, 820E, 830M, 830MP, 830MG, 840, 845,***** 850 ****, or 860) please visit Intel's web site and download the Intel Application Accelerator. Intel's Application Accelerator supports the full capacity of drives larger than 137 GB.-----
If you do not have a motherboard that has a Intel chipset then it is recommended that you purchase an Ultra ATA 133 PCI card that supports 48 bit Logical Block Addressing (LBA). You can purchase the Maxtor Ultra ATA 133 PCI Card, which supports drives that are larger than 137 GB, directly from us or your local distributor.
before downloading the Intel Application Accelerator, is there an uncomplicated procedure for backing up the drivers that the IAA drivers will be replacing, so if there is a problem I can reinstall them. back up registry? driver guide toolkit? what's the best way to back up drivers? and then reinstall the original drivers if there's a screwup. thxI would keep the old drivers handy just in case
