How come I am getting a message that I need to update a driver while upgrading to Windows 7 even though I already updated the driver?by blackdragon on May 1, 2013
Q: I’m trying to upgrade to Window 7. I ran the Win 7 upgrade advisor and it told me I could upgrade. When I started to install it told me I needed to update the driver for Storage controllers: ADY6E7E4 IDE Controller. So I went to Dell and downloaded and installed the driver but I got the same message that I needed to update that driver. I’m guess it has to do with the things that uses IDE cables. The only things I have that uses IDE is my floppy disc drive which I don’t use so I don’t really care about and my I/O board which is where my start button is located. I know if I disconnect it my PC won’t start so I’m just worried that if I upgrade and it doesn’t work properly my PC won’t turn on. If I go ahead with the install. Could it keep me from starting my computer?
