How to indentify what Sata Controllers i need ?

2009-08-20, 19:09 PM

I have a lenovo Idea Pad Y550 notebook and a installed xp on it.

I want to install a sata storage driver so I downloaded the driver and extracted the files.


The problem is when i try to update from device menagement the Intel(R)ICHM-E 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 1 - 2928. I chose the .inf file from the Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver folder and aper several sata controlers.


I dont`k know which is good for my laptop.(I think if a install a bad one i have to reinstall the OS)

I tried to search the internet for a way to find this but without result.


Help will be much appreciated.


P.S the driver is from lenovo suport site.

Actually you don't need to update driver - outcome will not worth it.

In case you still want to - use that one you stated, it looks OK.

In case system will screw up you jsut have to load last known good configuartion (press F8 many times after Lenovo boot logo disappears and before Windows starts to laod)
