The default setting for that motherboard is AHCI.

Broke SMART how? I use IRST 12.6 on several PCs, and SMART still works for me, at least with the programs I use to check SMART data.

It looks like Intel removed IRST 12.6 from their downloads, I can only find 12.5 now. I've had no problems with it at all, including using the SSD Toolbox with it.

I have two solid state drives set up exactly how you want to do it and it's working because again, RST isn't for RAID; it's mostly just a driver for the Intel-controlled SATA ports.

In other words, instead of using msachi.sys, you'll be using iaStor.sys.



Yep, because this is for Intel systems. It's not just for solid state drives either. This is just a driver for Intel-controlled SATA ports; it replaces the generic Microsoft driver known mostly as "msachi.sys". The one you'll be using after installing this is iaStor.sys.

The way I understand this is that it will work even if I disable my RAID set up? and switch to AHCI? my current set-up is that it is on RAID, it wont let me do the accelerate when I set it on AHCI, but when I switched it to RAID it works.

The way in understanding this is that after i install the software, I show switch to iaStor.sys via registry ?

hmm I should give this a try...

just for clarification, should I upgrade to the newer version from 11.0.0.1032 to 12.5.0.1066?

Don't do anything in the registry! No need to at all!

If the SATA mode is set to RAID, single drives (SSDs, HDDs) are treated the same as if the SATA mode was set to AHCI. The main difference with RAID is you can create RAID volumes, and use acceleration/SRT, which needs RAID mode. You can change from RAID mode to AHCI, but there is no need to do so. You can have six SSDs on the Intel SATA ports, some single, some in RAID, and everything will be fine. I don't undertand what you're worried about.

The ONLY time you need to perform the registry change is if you installed your OS in IDE mode, and are changing to AHCI or RAID mode.

not sure which one to select on that link, I have Windows 7 64bit, but dont know anything about Sata mode stuff being installed?

Yes, thank Gawd, but that has been common only since the SB and some Nehalem board days. But do you know how many people change it? The number of forum posts with people with SSDs running in IDE mode is surprising. It's seen here all the time. I'd be surprised if a week went by in this forum without a question about changing to AHCI or RAID mode.

Are your drives in a RAID configuration right now?

 

Also, upgrade to 12.6.0.1033 here: http://www.station-drivers.com/telechargement/intel/sata/intel_rst_12.6.0.1033(www.station-drivers.com).exe

 

It's WHQL.

It's just a driver. ;)

Ok, starting from scratch, you need to check what the SATA mode is set to in your BIOS. It's likely in Storage Configuration. It's for the main Intel SATA interface on your board, it may have a secondary Marvell or ASMedia SATA chipset, which should be labeled as such, that is not what we are looking for.

Oh great, your board has two Marvell SATA chipsets too, those can't use the Intel driver. Any idea where your SSD is plugged in? Is it in the white SATA ports, the black, or the gray SATA ports?

After installing them i could not read any smart info from my hard drives. Mostly i use temperature readouts. But Hard Disk Sentinel which i use when i check hard drives condition could not get any info for any attached disk. Basicly SMART info was not accessable to any program who use it like Aida64 for example. This problem gone when i downgraded to 10.5.

This driver only works for the SATA ports that are controlled by the Intel chipset, and the SATA mode for these ports has to be either RAID or AHCI.

I've had problems with 12.6 now, with a RAID 0 volume. Seems to be corrupting the OS, had to install three times. Been fighting with it for two days now, changed to 12.5, no problems so far.

I will say it works fine with single, non-RAID SSDs for the OS, I've been using it that way for a few weeks. Don't forget, Intel removed 12.6 from their downloads, StationDrivers just doesn't care what happens, they aren't responsible for what they provide, betas, alphas, who knows where they get some of those drivers.

I would not recommend 12.6 for RAID, IMO.
