    Hello, i just reformatted my PC and there are a lot of unknown devices in the device manager, and most of the ones missing are very important (RAID controller, PCI controller ect.)

    Can someone PLEASE tell me a way to identify them so i can use my hardware?

    Much thanks

    You'll need to identify the motherboard manufacturer and model, if you don't know it you can use a program like SIW to find out: http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
    Once you do that you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the correct drivers.
