Default Re: How do I cancel that kind of driver installation that asks for disks on reboot?

The drivers were never installed. I never had the files on that CD that the sucker is asking for. I normally use these controllers under FreeBSD and Linux. When I dual-booted into Windoze it picked them up and started wining about wanting the CD. It never stopped.

Here are the controllers and their PCI ID:

05:06.0 Mass storage controller: HighPoint Technologies, Inc. HPT366/368/370/370A/372/372N (rev 03)

05:07.0 Mass storage controller: Promise Technology, Inc. 20269 (rev 02)

I don't want to reinstall this thing. I know for fact that this stuff is cancelable, because I did it before, I just forgot how. (as I said, it is not a new autostart application for each driver, it's hidden somewhere in some config file for some standard windows startup procedure)
