64 bit driver promise ultra

There is no official Window 7 driver for the Promise Technology Ultra 133 TX2, but you can use the Vista driver. It should also work for both the Ultra 66 and the Ultra 100 cards.
I found the Vista driver at:
The file name is: Ultra133 TX2 windows logo driver.rar
This file is compressed in the rar format. I decompressed it using 7-Zip. Folder amd64 contains the 64 bit driver. The amd64 driver worked even though my mother board has an Intel CPU and chip set.

I have a GX 280 and get the mesage ultra 100 is not installed. I do have a promise card installed. I cannot get to bios

ultra ata 100.. ide cable .. may be bad.. or the controller on the motherboard is causing the issue

try to pull the ide cable off the board.. do ya see the bios then???

if so first replace with a different 80pin ide cable.. or buy a new one..

test the drives attached to the ide ribbon gray cable in another chassis... if the all is good.. and you still can not reach the bios..

use the clear cmos or bios directions on the gx280 manual online at dell

else the motheboard has gone bad

I cannot find a driver anywhere for my belkin f5u098 ide raid controller.

The drivers for this ATA Controller Card are resident in Windows, just like the Motherboard's onboard ATA/IDE Controller. If they don't autodetect and load make sure you are running at least Service Pack 2 for Windows XP and SP4 for Win 2000. Vista and later will have resident drivers.

Vista drivers needed for Ultra ATA/133 IDE RIAD controller card

You can plug it in and see if Vista can use any of its drivers for it. In many cases it has drivers for the chipset on the card which will work perfectly well with the device.

Using promise tx2 ultra133 ata/133 controller for raid (performance)

Well, first of all, the card only supports 2 drives from what I see... and secondly, the card doesn't do RAID either. This is the spec sheet that I made the determination from... If I'm mistaken about what the device is, please provide more information about the card that you have. If I have the correct card, then unfortunately you'll have to get another card. If you'll tell me what your technical requirements and financial restrictions are, maybe I can give you some advice on what to purchase.

Mobo reads less ram than windows

possible that you have incompatible mem installed, the archictecture of the mem could be 32mb x 64bit could mean that the "BIOS" may only be able to see 32Mb x 8 which to me suggests that this is not the correct mem for this Motherboard, is this mem recovered from another system or an old board. Try and use their memory configurator to find the correct mem for your motherboard (enter the MB manuf and model)
