    Yeah, those are standard MS drivers. Even if it says 2015, you should use the AMD set, it performs better in some I/O operations with the disk (I use Photoshop and CSP, I really notice the difference)

    If you have more than one (Unless the second is controlled by another chip, which I doubt) both should be using AMD drivers.

    AH! Just before I forget, are you guys updating your SATA controller as well? You have to do it manually via Device Manager and point to the drivers folder in the chipset install directory, but worths it, even spinners benefit for a slight speed gain if you update from the generic AHCI driver from Microsoft.
    Indeed, it does not update automatically for whatever reason, updating it made hell of a difference, especially on laptops, booting went from 2 minutes to like 40 seconds. When people complain about a long black screen before logon, it is usually caused by the generic AHCI driver. I keep SATA and SMBus drivers at hand, there is no need for the whole package.

    Exactly that... that's why I have no need for Hybrid boot, my laptop boots fast enough with the correct drivers.

    Still, you should apply the full package, because there are other system drivers that should be updated as well to increase performance and reduce the possibility of crashes:

    See this? They should be the same driver date as your SMBus, to ensure you run smoothly. In other cases, seems there is also a PCI Bus driver that should be updated, in case it appears under system devices, if it's not (normal) you should update it manually, as you do with AHCI controllers...

    AMD PCI Express (3GIO) Filter and PCI Bus Driver requires manually updating. | guru3D Forums

    Still applied for some systems... mine doesn't have this anymore after my BIOS update.

    In short, you still need the full package, I install it to make sure I have everything in order. Probably you can just skip the Radeon Settings instalation in case you don't need to tweak the VGA settings (Personally I like to play with Virtual Resolution XD)

    I install it, because of USB driver, the other drivers do not apply to mine PC. Driver Easy alerts me, if something is missing.

    I have to MS drivers, I'd try to install those drivers you posted but it says that the best driver is already installed, where the drivers are suppose to be to download?

    Check if this works for you... seems it includes the AHCI drivers.
    Legacy



    Extract, and use device mannager to manually upgrade the SATA controller.

    The driver for the AHCI is from 2015, so, that one is exactly the same that came bundled in chipset drivers prior to 17.40 version...

    I'm still puzzled why AMD removed the driver from the package... I hope they aren't hoping we are getting stuck with those poorly written drivers from Microsoft... are they?

    I don't know, but I can't seem to be able to update my driver, even the Raid driver is the microsoft one
