According to hitachi support the drivers needed are pre-installed on the operating system and they do not offer any drivers on their site

Just replaced HDD in Satellite L305 w/ above HDD. I will be installing Windows XP SP3 on the Toshiba HDD that I just installed, will I need to download the ACHI XP F6 Install tool for this HDD?


ACHi drivers/firmware updates are loaded after xp generic driver installation, you only need to have the drivers handy on a floppy during the xp installation for a raid driver array

Hello,

Go back on Device Manager, right-click the HDD and choose 'Uninstall'. Go through this then unplug and plug back in the HDD. Hopefully if the drivers you downloaded are installed it will recognise it first time.

The link for the drivers are:
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=K8V

And, Yes, it is completely safe to do that, but just make sure in the process of moving your HDD, do not send a static shock to it because it will fry it and make it lead to many failures. (This has happened to me before when I reformatted a computer and swapped it in computers)

I need to install drivers on an old HDD for an Asus K8V mobo.


Hi gordonal123, installing drivers through safe mode is not recommended. If you want windows to function correctly than do a fresh install of windows. Over writing the Gateway hdd will cause you more grief. Windows registry will go nuts.
Link to download the Asus K8V drivers.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Here is what you need to do. Boot to your windows CD while using the Gateway system & hdd. Create a new partition within the free space of the Gateway hdd. (Follow windows onscreen instructions to create a new partition within the free space of hdd). (This will maintain the current windows function).
Restart windows when finished. Windows will create a second partition on the Gateway drive. Go to the Asus link above & download all the drivers for the K8V MB, onto the second partition of the Gateway hdd. Once downloaded & uncompressed into their own folders you can than boot to the windows CD & format the primary partition & install windows fresh onto the formatted partition. When finished you can install the K8V driver still located on the secondary partition. Copy & past these driver folders to your primary partition. Than use windows disk management software to erase / delete the secondary partition. (diskmgmt.msc).
When finished you'll have all the drivers for the K8V MB, no need to buy a PCI LAN card & more importantly a fully functioning windows with-out issues.

Good luck gordonal123!
Take your time.
Mike
