ASUS P5K SLI Not working

Hello People,

I have almost the same system as the Qoute:

Asus P5k Chipset P35
XFX Geforce 8800 GTS 512
XFX Geforce 8800 GTS 512
SLI Bridge

And i have the same problem that HyperSli sais is "Working Fine" but i don't have any option "SLI" in the Nvidia control panel?

I follow the manual but nothing works :ohwell: Maybe somebody have any idea????

I hope so! Thanx





First of all, thx for all your work, just reading the coments from people who could make it work got me all excited :eek:

Here is my case:
VT-x ok
UAC disabled ok
HyperSLI installed and restarted ok
285.38 installed ok

Then I open the HyperSLI S.O., Hypersli sais he is working fine, yet I cant activate the SLI option in the nvidia config tool, it doesnt even appear.
:banghead:

MOBO: Asus P5K
CARDS: XFX 8800GT 512mb
XFX 8800GT 256mb XXX
(I have the SLI bridge)

Hi,
thanks for your fast reply.

I've attached the output, but I guess that won't help you?!

Regards

The solution to this problem is to assign a drive letter to the Windows 7 hidden partition
Well, I don't have the 100MB hidden partition, which is usually created by Windows.
But I've the 200MB EFI Partition and that's where the bcd file for Windows is located.

I know that's not a common setup.

Hmm, but why does the setup utility need access to the file? Only because it creates a second boot entry, right?
So, is it possible to install the patch manually?

I spend much time to get installation automatic to get users feel convenient. Say how did you set up your partitions.

So I've been running this for a few weeks and much like some other people, despite SLI being enabled I've actually taken a performance HIT on almost all gaming. Specifically BF3... Not too sure whats going on.

TNX ANATOLYMIC for your work and your time that u dedicated to me.

Now i will explain the problems and the fix for my motherboard(ASUS P5E64WS EVO):
The first problem was that i cannot activate the sli with both card on the blue pciexp (pciexp @16x 2.0) because the second blu pciexp wasn't working correctly.
So anatolymic told me to try first blue pciexp(pciexp @16x 2.0) and second black pciexp(pciexp @4x1.1). With this configuration i was able to enable sli on nv control panel but with sli enable the performances were the half.
This problem was caused from a bandwidth saturation, the thing was the same with both vga on the black pciexp.
So i retuned with both nvidia 9800GTX+ on the blue pciexp and after some work ANATOLYMIC found out that the driver recognized the vga on the second blue slot speed was less than pciexp 4x. In this way the drivers ''blocked'' the possibility to do the sli.
ANATOLYMIC build for me a special Hypersli (u can find here http://depositfiles.com/files/nknqag8xa ,only to unzip and click on hypersli and click install) and i was able to do the sli with both card on blue pciexp(@16x 2.0).
First i tried with the 190.62 and i had a 50% of increase of performance, after i tried with latest 290.53 and the increment was 63/64%!!!!!!:toast:
(NEW) With the 285.58 the increase of performance are little bit better than 290.53..around 65%.

Tnx ANATOLYMIC and ALL THE USERS

You mean the 200MB GPT Partition, right?
Unfortunately that's not possible.

Could you provide me with the necessary modifications?
And I know that you've done awesome work to automate the procedure.

With EasyBCD I was now able to open the bcd file.
