|It is the Generic MS driver, dated 2001. It's the same driver that was used for the other mobo.|
No, I did not reinstall Windows. Suprisingly, the Windows on the hard drive booted and worked right out of the box with the new mobo.
The FireWire card doesn't appear in the list of devices sorted by IRQ. In the Resources tab of the card's Properties page, it says "This device isn't using any resources because it has a problem."
The card is in PCI slot #3, farthest away from the AGP slot. The BIOS does let me manually assign IRQ's to the 3 PCI slots, so i'll try that. According to the Device Manager, IRQs 2, 7, 10, 11, 12, 17, 19, and 20 (and maybe more, depending on how far up it goes) are not in use, so i'll see if the BIOS will let me assign one of those IRQs to PCI slot #3.
Trying another slot will mean having to punch out one of those shields, but I will do it if the IRQ changing doesn't work.
