    After installing a second XP on my computer (on seperate hard drive) I cannot identify what drivers I need to install for some devices listed in Device Manager. They are the following:
    - Other PCI Bridge Device (Only have sound card installed in PCI slot)
    - PCI Input Device
    I know my motherboard in effect has two BIOS's because theres an added Sis chipset which adds SATA and a LAN port, but I'm sure I installed the drivers for them (the extra SATA and lAN run off the PCI bus according to my mboard manual.) I have a ECS KN1 Extreme motherboard. I have installed the following drivers:
    1) Monitor
    2) CPU
    3) G.Card
    4) Sound Card
    5) Chipset (nForce 4ULTRA)
    6) The drivers which I THINK are for the added SATA and LAN ports

    system specs:
    ECS KN1 Extreme Mobo (with added Sis chipset)
    3800+ AMD 64
    200GB Seagate, 80Gb Samsung (SATA through nForce)
    X850XT PE
    Audigy 2ZS
    1GB ram

    can anyone think of any other drivers/what the hardware is? I keep looking through the disk I got with my motherboard but I seem to have installed everything needed (obviously not though) Thanks for any help! :D

    You could look on your original hard drive and see what the differences are I suppose? A program like Aida32 may be able to identify the hardware. Do you possibly have any other motherboard drivers on the CD? On my Via chipset based motherboard I had a 4 in 1 set to install.

    Thanks for your post. I keep looking through the disk but it's incredibly confusing. I'll try that program, thankyou!

    Aida couldn't unmask anything I I've just looked through the driver disk and still nothing :(.

    Hmmm.... Anything to do with other devices on your GFx card? VIVO perhaps? I know my x800 installs 3 or 4 things.
