I have a GF615M-P33V2 - how can I get Windows Server 2003 drivers and software? Also, IDE CD/DVD only work intermittently. Is there any way I can connect a CD, DVD and a floppy. I've already an IDE HD...


Hi, the download site is here:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/GF615M-P33.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

But there is no drivers for windows 2003.
The 32 bit driver for windows xp will sometimes work
if it is a 32 bit system.
You can buy an external floppy drive and a cd/dvd drive to
connect the usb.
But the mainboard has a connector for the floppy drive.
Try to install the chipset drivers first and unzip the file before installation.

Consider to buy a mainboard compatible with windows server 2003
I will recomend a ASUS mainboard.

Recognizing my sata DVD writer in bios mode


How about a work-around?
(Your post is so old now that you probably figured out a solution . . . so this is for other readers)

I have the exact same motherboard, and a SIMILAR problem.
I have a PATA CD/DVD drive . . . so no problem there.
But I have a SATA hard drive, and the BIOS does NOT see it.
So when I boot from the WinXP CD, that is fine,
but then the install process claims I have no hard drive!
So how can I reinstall WinXP to a hard drive that doesn't exist yet?

Solution that didn't work:
So I knew the ASUS SATA driver (embedded in their RAID driver) needed to be loaded,
and TRUE, the WinXP install process gave me the opportunity (via F6 key) to install any
additional driver for a mass storage device. Great! So, with the latest driver on the floppy
from ASUS using their "MakeDisk" utility, I let the Windows install process read in the driver.
Well, it made the hard disk visible to the installation . . . sort of . . . but then it took me
to the Recovery Console (which I didn't want or need) rather than the Repair Install process
(and there was no "R" option available to initiate the Repair). So, gave up on that!

Solution that I think is sure to work:
Go to Ebay, and buy from Hong Kong a PATA to SATA adapter for about $7.50 including shipping. It is a great deal! And customer ratings gave HIGH marks, so the seller is trustworthy.
Make sure not to buy the SATA to PATA (the other direction), and also, I'd suggest buying the
version in which the little adapter card plugs directly (without a cable) into the PATA socket
on the motherboard, and then plug the SATA cable from it to the SATA hard drive (or the
SATA CD/DVD drive in your case). Connect the power jacks as needed. And presto!
You have converted the PATA interface to a SATA interface which needs no SATA driver!
The BIOS will see the SATA drive as a PATA drive (how clever!). After doing the WinXP
install or whatever, switch back to the way things were and save your adapter card for next time.

SATA HDD


you need to install the drivers for it when loading windows,,
you are on the right track by pressing F6 however you need to have the FLOPPY DISK that came with your mainboard in the floppy drive..

If you dont have the diskette then ,, the drivers are located on the mainboard cd,, its in the sata / raid folder, there should be a text document in there with the insttructions on creating a floppy with the driver files you will need.

Cant find my SATA HDD


Yes - find the chipset for the motherboard - go on intel website for that chipset - download the utility for F6 use [sata driver or raid controller] put these files on floppy or USB key - boot motherboard and when it says press F6 to instal SCSI or other drivers press F6 - the software will ask where the files are - use the correct file and carry on running the windows installation. This time your sata hard drive will be recognised and you can complete loading windows.

Please rate my assistance - thank you.
