5. No, Have Disk, browse the directory where we extract the .rar file. Chose file nvgts.inf
6. Uninstall other Standard IDE controllers (NOT Primary nor Secondary)
7. Reboot and enter the BIOS
8. Change the hard disk type from IDE to AHCI mode
9. Enter the Windows… , if it is succesfull you will not find Blue Screen, but if you failed you will find Blue Screen
10. Windows will install the driver automatically and ask for restart
11. Restart your windows
12. Go to Device Manger by pressing shortcut Win+PauseBreak
13. You will see 2 AHCI Controller, hapus one of then that has exlamation mark
