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)

I have an idea, use autoruns, http://www.infocomercial.com/downloa..._programa=2737, and see if you can disable the automatic start of this, meanwhile I search for the registry hives of this devices.

Just a bump in case anybody who didn't see the thread before has an idea.

This is really annoying. I know that I once found a switch to cancel these driver installs but no go.

have you tried adding environment variable?

Code:
DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
then check device manager again under IDE ATA/ATAPI controller, hard disk controller and Storage controllers for greyed out items. I bet you will likely find the culprit that way. Be sure to enable hidden devices when you do this.

Yup, though to clarify - you type this in cmd prompt before launching device manger from said prompt.


Also, you may want to just check Non plug and play drivers as well.

I'll try that the next time the box is up.

So then I can cancel the installation from the device manager?

As I said earlier, I did this but it only showed unrelated hardware. The offending half-drivered hardware didn't pop up.
