You need to learn how to ask questions, if you want replies. Seriously, I don't have a clue what you're asking about in the post body itself.

As for the subject: the standard dual-channel IDE controller is the standard driver that MS Windows will use for an IDE controller. AFAIK, it is based off of an old Intel implementation. On most systems, this driver will work fine; and on many, it will be ideal. On some chipsets, it will not offer DMA, or be buggy, so you may need to load new drivers.

With the '?', you may need to load drivers (I don't know about the NF4 chipset). In most situations, it's one of those 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' kind of things.

Yes. You are missing the IDE drivers.

You need to learn some manners before you reply!!!!!! Seriously, I figured out the problem and it's only with windows XP 64 and not Windows Pro. The only thing I didn't install were the IDE drivers because I've heard so many horror storys about them. It's weird because I used the same method to install the chipset drivers(No IDE Drivers) and only received the yellow question marks with Windows XP 64?? Thanks for your help..
