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 184.108.40.206 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.
The first thing to try is open Device Manager and uninstall the existing driver for serial ata (SATA) controller. Afterwards, use the Drivers and Utilities CD that you received from Dell to install the Chipset driver depending on the model of your Dell computer. Alternatively, you can go to htttp://support.dell.com and click the Drivers Home link. Enter the 7-digit alphanumeric service tag of your computer , click Continue. Select the operating system version you have, then download the main Chipset driver for your computer. Install it after the download. In addition, check for the Serial ATA category on the drivers page and download the Intel Matrix Storage Manager if available for your computer. Feel free to let us know how it goes.
if u cant locate the drivers name, try using unix base(linux) live cd's, like knoppix for example, they usally detect all the drivers u have in minutes and even gives u all the names and serial numbers, then u can download them.
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.
