New AHCI driver for SSD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I have a Windows 7 PC with a Gigabyte EP45-DS3 motherboard, up to date BIOS and Intel P45 chipset ICH10R all dating from 2008. I have just installed a Samsung SSD 850 EVO to speed up the system disc. All installed ok, but it is working with frequent blue screen crashes. The SSD is not yet running as AHCI because when I set AHCI in the BIOS, it warns that the Intel SATA AHCI BIOS is iSrc 1.07 and supports HDD & CD-ROM only - then it crashes!

I assume I need an up to date AHCI driver, but which one? The Intel list on their website is confusing me. I think I need RST_11.6.0.1030_RAID_AHCI_driver_GUI_CLI_2012.10.11 but would like confirmation. I do not use RAID and the PC is a simple workstation, not a server, but I think this is the correct one. I'm just worried that I may lock everything up if there is a serious incompatibility.

I hope this makes sense.

What do you mean by "then it crashes"? What happens exactly?

It's a computer!

11.2.0.1006 would be the one I would use on your system.
