    Hi,

    I've got a dual booting (Win 98SE/XP) Pentium II 400 MHz PC with a Aopen AX6BC Motherboard Bios 2.58. I tried connecting an external hard drive to the PC the other day and a message said I needed a High Speed Host Controller as one was not found, the Motherboard has only 1.1. I bought a PCI USB 2.0 Host Controller, installed it but the PC will not recognise it. Can someone tell me if I need to install a EHCI Driver when I can't even find OHCI in the BIOS Setup? I know a bit about the BIOS but not a great deal so can any help that's forthcoming please be in laymans terms, thanks.

    If it isn't recognized in either 98 or XP, I recommend changing the USB adapter for one that has a different brand of chipset on it.
