You do not need any AHCI drivers. And about the chipset drivers you can look here: http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/G46VW/#support_Download_36

Thanks for the information.
when I install the chipset driver should I also run the command "overall".

If you want the new chipset drivers to install you will need to use the switch -overall and -override

where is the advantage, if I install the "overall" and-override command.
I noticed when I install the chipset driver without these commands, nothing changes in the device manager.

Is there a negative effect chipset installation with -overall command?

thank you for the information.

Yes with out the switches no drivers will be updated, you will not see the drivers being loaded and scrolling down the list.

In order to update Intel chipset drivers you must do this from the elevated command prompt
Navigate to the folder where you have the drivers extracted
then excute
setup.exe -overall -override

a very big "THANKS".
Should -override or "-overide" (1 r less) to be entered into the Command Prompt.

This forum has helped me many times.

Look in the folder where you have the chipset drivers. Looks for Release Notes.txt or Readme.txt something like that you'll find the full list of switches that can be used with explanations for each.
