Hello and welcome,

 

That is very strange.

 

I'm curious: why are you installing and running in compatibility mode?  Why not just run in AHCI mode.  You can enable the correct driver without reinstalling.

Re: Wireless Not Working On Z570 When SATA Mode Controller Set To ** COMPATABLE **

First: Thank you

Second:

The reason that make me SATA Mode to Compatible : When SATA Mode set to AHCI and I Partation my HDD by Windows 7 DVD I Found Strange Partation ** Unallocated Partition with 0 MB BEFORE Every partition** , and i didn't know what is it so I Changed it to Compatible.

Do You Know anything about this unallocated partitions ... IS It USEFUL OR What ????

 

Third:

When I run on Windows Xp

My Dedicated VGA Memory is ** 256 MB ** , But On Windows 7 My Dedicated VGA is ** 64 MB **

I Don't NO WHY ???????

Sorry, I can't answer any of those questions :smileysad:

 

If you change to AHCI mode - as in that link I posted - do you still see the weird partitions?

Re: Wireless Not Working On Z570 When SATA Mode Controller Set To ** COMPATABLE **

No I don't see it cause i partitioned my HDD in Compatible Mode

And after using your tool everything BE OK (Wireless Work Good) :smileyhappy:

 

But I Now Ask About VGA Card

On Windows XP it's Dedicated Memory 256 MB

But, On Windows 7 it's Dedicated Memory 64 MB Abd Share1238 Then Total Be 1302 MB

And Although this The Same Games ( Like Pro 2012 ) Run On Windows Xp in High Resolution But On Windows 7 don't RUN !!!! (I know Why becauce it need Dedicated More Equa Or More Than 256 MB )

I Ask About The Defferance Between Dedicated Memory On XP & 7
