Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
I was wondering if anyone has installed a newer drive (ata100) into an Armada M700 and running windows xp home? My particular question is what driver is installed for the ide ata/atapi controllers? If you have an ata (ide/eide) drive does it use the sata ahci controller driver? This is found under device manager.
I am running a Armada M700 with a Hitachi HTS541060G9AT00 60GB Hard Drive - Ultra ATA-100, 5400 RPM, 8MB. The driver that is loaded in mine is on both primary and secondary is atapi.sys. This driver is also installed on the Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller, along with intelide.sys. The main difference is I am running Window XP Pro SP2. But I believe that they should use the same driver.
Hope this helps.
