MSI Fuzzy 945GM1 Drivers (esp. ethernet) and Bios Update
I am trying to get a MSI Fuzzy 945GM1 running.
Windows XP pro (32 bit) loaded ok.
The driver disk that is included comes with a 64 bit driver disk, which even when exploring the disk instead of using autorun, was entirely unhelpful.
So I started searching the internet using "ms-7265 drivers", and found logicsuppy's page for the product, which directed me to intel's web site, where I found the drivers for the chipset and graphics controller. which left yellow question marks next to the audio device and the ethernet controller.
Logicsupply was again helpful in directing me to realtek's site for the AC97 driver. And now for the problem:
I can't for the life of me find the ethernet controller drivers. This board's information book says it,"Supports Dual Intel® 10/100/1000 LAN by two Intel® 82541PI Giga-LAN controllers".
Intel's website didn't really provide enough information other than:
Which, I guess, leads me back to MSI, who's product page and download section seems deficient for this product.
Integrated LAN adapter (LAN Down)
Recent Intel chipsets integrate the Media Access Control (MAC) portion (MAC) of the LAN adapter into the I/O Controller Hub (ICH) of the chipset. The Physical (PHY) portion of the LAN adapter is not integrated, so a separate LAN chip must still be used on the motherboard to support LAN functionality. Additionally, some motherboards use a PCI LAN adapter chip that does not use the integrated MAC portion of the ICH.
Due to the potential variations, drivers from the system or motherboard manufacturer should be used. For technical support information, check with the system or motherboard manufacturer. If you have an Intel® motherboard, support information is available on the support page for the particular motherboard: http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/
Has anybody overcome this? Is there an answer? Would someone please help?
Microsoft says I only have 30 days to figure this out!:lol:
