Re: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 motherboard not working with 64 bit kernel
Did you check the Gigabyte forums to see if they could help?
Asking because I have a Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H and could not get the wired onboard nic to work reliably until, in Windows, Gigabyte came out with new RealTek drivers and a diagnostic utility.
The NIC would turn on in Windows but when I rebooted into Ubuntu, it would indicate no network.
When I went back into Windows, I would have to run the diag routine to MANUALLY turn the NIC back on. Then it would work.
But, when I booted back into Ubuntu, same problem again.
It took three driver updates to get it working right.
Maybe on the Gigabyte forums, someone has figured out how to fix this in Linux for your board.
Ubuntu 12.10; Mint 15; MS Win7 & Win8.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
