    Most Intel chipset use intel SATA Controllers, wonder why it is not listed under Win 10 drivers then, not a really old motherboard.
    All those files go on thumb drive it will select the .inf file and use the rest from it. Hoping this is correct from what you see.
    Your welcome for the help.

    Questions i asked before you have not answered it is first time putting win 10 on this system ?

    Seems correct to use IRST drivers for SATA controller for SATA III 6Gb's. Shown here what Marvel controllers is used for.
    Also have SATA II 3Gb's and eSATA.

    Thank you !

    Yes this will the first install of Windows 10. I could not use the upgrade route as my computer was Sysprep'd to have both Program Data and User Data on separate partitions. Tried to move back and ended up with a mix of some data moved some not. So I restored to Windows 7 image and decided to go for clean install to Windows 10 and upgrade to an SSD for system drive at the same time.

    Thanks again for all your help and support.
