since when driver is involved? strange it is running local on disk.
Since 1987 when Windows came out. It needs drivers to access everything,
even harddrives. The only time you don't need a driver for your harddrive
is when its' controlled directly by the NorthBridge and can be controlled
by the BIOS. Many systems prior to 2007 have SATA controllers and secondary
ATA controllers as a device hooked into the Northbridge, meaning it is not
accessed directly by the BIOS. In that case you need a driver or Windows
cannot access any drives connected to the system on those ports.
