    I just checked 10.6.0.1022 in device manager. It says version 10.6.0.1002 and date is 20.05.2011. So they didn't change driver itself but utilities.

    Yep, looks like they made it a Production Version; instead of, just, a Production Candidate.

    Quoted from the Release Notes pdf:

    I installed the exe file, prompted me restart, and all Hell broke loose:eek: BSOD'd every time I restart so I went ahead and just re-stored to my last known/good file.

    What's the deal?

    Do I have to re-install windows again before it works?

    have you got your OS on your ssd bogmali, and what version were you stepping up from.
    I ask because i went from 9.6 to 10.5, i have an ssd(os) plus raid0(games/stuff) and had allmost exactly what your saying, I may have lacked the skills but i could not get it to repair restore or recover and ended up reinstallin(final time taught me t back up) i tried allsorts but nothing worked,
    strangly after reinstall i put 10.5 on str8 away worked fine.

    i don't have any Intel drivers loaded on the my SSD, it's all Microsoft that came from the Win7 disc.

    EDIT: I see now that you have to do complete re-install and then load the drivers. Not going to do that since I don't have a back up saved.

    ok , I didnt have a backup either, but this my main rig couldnt be booted anymore,

    to be exact about it i think the "system volume" made by win7 install disk(i later put on intel RST 9.5 sorry) put on by win7 install disk despite picking the ssd for OS, the first time, in mine had been put on the raid hdds and not on my ssd with the OS (coincidentally sys volume is a 100mb partition win7 stores drive data used on boot to learn the drive config in your pc Afaik)


    and upon updateing to 10.5 something went very wrong and my raid array (mobo configed at time)dropped out of existence, with the system volume partition/folder on it gone win 7 couldnt/wouldnt boot anymore and only a fresh install fixed it


    i then thought sod it fresh install n all il try 10.5 on it now at the start and it worked fine tut, Bill sort it

    i did have at that time an older backup with similar drive layout all bar the location of the sys vol partion which in that backup was on a 1tb lone drive oddly and despite it going back on it still wouldnt boot, it was backed up with paragon bacup tho which may have messed it up anyway.

    For the people who don't need utilities and do need drivers only do this:

    a) download ahci drivers
    b) put that exe on C:\ and also create folder on C:\ let's say ich
    c) run cmd as administrator, enter c:\ (just type cd\)
    iata_enu_10.6.0.1022.exe -A -A -P C:\ich (iata_enu_10.6.0.1022.exe - example)
    (this operation expands ahci drivers)
    d) now go to that folder and you'll find drivers folder there.
    e) then you can update ahci drivers manually through the device manager
    f) just point to the folder (x32 or x64)


    you need only 6 files from x64/x32 folder IAAHCI.INF, IAAHCI.CAT, IASTOR.INF, IASTOR.CAT, IASTOR.SYS, TXTSETUP.OEM

    For some reason, I cannot get that to work. I get an 'iata_enu_*.exe' or 'iata_enu_10.6.0.1022.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command' error.

    However, downloading and extracting (7-Zip) the file from station-drivers gives the files you mentioned.

    You have to run cmd as administrator and should be in c:\ directory

    Thanks.

    I was running an Administrator command prompt, but I did not <cd C:\>

    Anyway, downloading the version from station-drivers and using 7-Zip works the same.

    Drone seems to have a handle on this so I guess I will ask.

    I just recently built my current rig and bought twin HDDs on the thinking I would get an SSD later.
    But then I thought just for kicks to RAID 0 them together for now.

    Anyways my RAID BIOS is 10.5 I was wondering how hard would it be to update it to 10.6?

    @ INSTG8R To be honest I didn't try it with RAID but I think the update shouldn't cause any problems

    installation from within Windows was successful however upon reboot, my workstation still BSOD's with the AHCI setting:wtf: Only workaround is I set it back to IDE:confused:

    I'll do a benchmark comparison from the old setting and then I'll decide if I want to roll back the AHCI drivers.

    I thought the RAID ROM needed to be incorporated into the motherboard's BIOS?

    Your installer says this just because 11.5 (version number) is greater than 11.2.
    Even tho 11.2 got released few days ago.
