The last post from jeroompje verifies,
- that the "SataDriver" module v188.8.131.525, which had been modified by me regarding TRIM in RAID0 for Z68 and the checksum integrity, obviously is usable without running into any severe problems,
- that it is possible to insert the SataDriver module into a BIOS, which natively doesn't have it,
- that the freshly inserted EFI RAID "SataDriver" will be successfully integrated into the "Advanced Mode" BIOS section and
- that the previously created RAID0 array will be detected by the "SataDriver" utility.
The only problem jeroompje has until now is to get Windows 8 installed in UEFI mode onto his RAID array.
So I would say: Yes, the insertion of the SataDriver is advisable even for Z68 chipset mainboard users, whose BIOS natively doesn't contain a "SataDriver" module, but the precondition for a successful use is the ability of the BIOS to support an OS installation in UEFI mode.Important remark:
Since the original Intel "SataDriver" modules only do support the TRIM in RAID0 feature for 7-Series chipsets, Z68 chipset RAID0 users should replace/insert an especially modified "SataDriver" module, if they want TRIM passing into the RAID0.@ all users with a Z68 RAID0:
As a consequence of jeroompje's test results I have updated the start post of this thread: http://www.win-lite.de/wbb/board208-specials/board281-bios-bios-modding/17000-ahci-raid-rom-modules-for-bios-modding-already-extracted/
There you can find some especially modified actual "SataDriver" versions, where I have enabled the TRIM in RAID0 feature for Z68 chipset systems.
To make it easier for you, I have added a short guide about how to get the "SataDriver" properly inserted into the BIOS.
Any feedback will be much appreciated!
