20071006-08 – building Hades – 139-3988 – installing the mystical motherboard drivers

Notice the crappy colors; I still only have 16 colors. Since my motherboard included sound and network (among other things), motherboard drivers were necessary. I’m not sure why a SATA driver would be necessary, since my drive IS SATA, and obviously is working just fine to get to this point. I think I didn’t install that.
BACKSTORY: So, as mentioned before (in a 10-part series of blog posts), my trusty computer of 9 years, "Storm", died a nasty death. My secondary/kitchen computer "Hell" stepped up to bat and took Storm’s place, but I still needed a new computer for our somewhat newly-built upstairs space. So I built Hades, during which I wrote another 5 blog posts. These are the pictures I took while building it.
