Question Safe Mode and disable onboard for sound card?

Is it recommended to disable your onboard audio and boot in Safe Mode to install an Asus Xonar D1 sound card?

I can't wait to see the difference between onboard and a sound card.

Yes, you should disable your on-board audio device in the BIOS. As for the Safe Mode, that will prevent windows from loading all drivers but will not remove any of them from your setup. I suggest you start Windows as usual, in the Device Manager right-click on the sound device and select Uninstall. That will remove the driver from your setup. Shut down the machine, install the audio card and start the machine again. Enter the BIOS setup, disable the on-board sound device and exit it, saving the settings. When Windows starts it will probably recognize the new hardware. From that point, proceed as described in the audio adapterís Installation Guide.

OK, that worked with no problems.

In the device manager, I disabled the "AC'97" (also in the BIOS) but does anyone know if you need to click on "Audio Codecs" or "Legacy Audio Drivers"?
