Ok thank you. I didn't know that. I just updated the BIOS using a flash drive, still nothing. Any other suggestions?
I switched the ports many times as well, nothing..

Edit: I just changed the Sata controller to IDE, and it booted.. but how can I switch back to AHCI now? I need AHCI in order for TRIM to work for the SSD, right?
How can I uninstall Intel RST completely?

I finally solved the problem following the first reply on this thread: http://communities.intel.com/thread/32400

The problem is that the system cannot load because of a new driver that it is trying to use. In Windows Startup Repair this was reported as "autofailover badpatch". So we are looking at a a bad patch.

A brilliant person over at the Microsoft COmmunity gave the solution!

Ask a computer-savvy friend to assist you if you lack experience in this area. Note that it may reset your password to an earlier value.
1. Keep tapping F8 during the early boot phase.
2. Select Repair from the menu.
3. Log on as Administrator if prompted.
4. Select Repair when prompted.
5. Select the Command Prompt.
6. Identify the correct drive letter for your Windows installation. It could be a drive other than C: but it won't be X:. You do it by typing the commands
dir C:\Win*
dir D:\Win*
dir E:\Win*
until you find the Windows folder.
I will call that drive "Q:".
7. Type these commands:
cd /d Q:\windows\System32\config
xcopy *.* Q:\RegBack\
cd RegBack
dir
8. Examine the dates of the Software, System and SAM files. Were the files created before or after your problem became apparent?
9. If they were made before the problem became apparent then you can type these commands:
copy /y software ..
copy /y System ..
copy /y Sam ..
(the two dots are part of each command)
10. Reboot normally. If things do not work out then you can backtrack by copying the original registry files from Q:\Regback to Q:\Windows\System32\config.

And thats all I needed to do. After reboot I could remove the RST drivers (I reinstalled them on new system again just to get to the bottom of things).

So thanks for nothing Intel. I sincerely hope you will start testing your drivers more thoroughly in the future.

I think it's just a way of copying back old drivers to the drivers' folder without the corrupted driver..

If I had System Restore working I could have done it by restoring it to an earlier point, but I got it disabled cause I read an article back when I installed windows on my SSD to reduce write operations on the SSD hence increasing it's life span.. So if anyone reading this in the future and have system restore enabled, try restoring to an earlier point first, it should work..

I guess I'm going to reactivate mine again, but I want to find a way to use other drives to write it on, not the SSD..
