This technology provides support for the following features:
RAID-enabled systems
Redundant Array of Independent Drives (RAID) refers to multiple independent disks combined to form one logical drive. The main objective of this technology is to improve storage system performance, data protection, and increase fault-tolerance.
This technology provides support for the following features:
■ Intel® Rapid RAID
This technology provides the ability to create RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10 volumes on desktop and mobile platforms. Data is distributed across two or more disks to provide data redundancy or to enhance data storage performance.
■ Intel® Matrix RAID Technology
This technology allows two independent RAID volumes to be created on a single array. The first volume occupies part of the array, leaving space for the second volume. The array may consist of two to six SATA disks depending on the volume types.
■ Native command queuing
A feature that allows SATA disks to accept more than one command at a time. When used in conjunction with one or more disks that support NCQ, storage performance is increased on random workloads by allowing the disk to internally optimize the order of commands.
■ Hot plug
Also referred to as hot swap, this feature allows SATA disks to be removed or inserted while the computer is turned on and the operating system is running. As an example, hot plugging may be used to replace a failed external disk.
■ Disk capacity greater than two terabytes (if that size is supported by the option ROM)
This feature provides support for hard disks and solid-state drives with a capacity greater than 2 TB that are reported as pass-through devices (available) or used in a RAID configuration. In addition, booting from a system disk greater than 2 TB is allowed as long as the version of the option ROM in your system supports this feature.

■ Volume migration
This feature provides support for converting system data into a high-performance or protection RAID configuration.
■ Volume size increase
This feature allows you to increase the data storage capacity of a volume by using 100% of the available array space or by adding one or more SATA disk to an existing volume.
Our application also provides support for the following features:
• Password-protected disks
This feature provides high-level security and protection for the data on your disks with a password, denying access from any unauthorized user.
Trim (Microsoft Windows 7* only)
This feature provides support for all solid-state drives (SSDs) in your storage system that meet the ATA-8 protocol requirements and are not part of an array. This feature optimizes write operations, helps reduce device wear, and maintains unused storage area on devices as large as possible.
• ODD power optimization (Microsoft Windows Vista* and higher)
This feature allows an unused optical disk drive (ODD) to be automatically powered off when media such as a compact disk, a DVD, or Blu-ray disk are not present in the drive and the tray** is closed. The ODD is powered back on by the operating system or user interaction with the device, including when the eject button is pressed. ODD power optimization is particularly valuable for mobile computers as battery life is negatively affected when the ODD is powered on and in an idle state. This feature is only supported on the following system configurations: Intel® 6 Series Chipset or later, compatible motherboards, and compatible ODDs. For more information about compatibility requirements, refer to the SATA specifications available at www.sata-io.org
**For slot-loadable drives, the tray condition does not apply.
AHCI-enabled systems
Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) is an interface specification that automatically allows the storage driver to enable advanced SATA features, such as Native Command Queuing and Native Hot Plug, on the SATA disks connected to your computer. The following features are supported on AHCI-enabled systems:
■ Native command queuing
■ Hot plug
■ Disk capacity greater than two terabytes (if that size is supported by the option ROM)
■ Password-protected disks
■ ODD power optimization (Microsoft Windows Vista* and higher)

*quotes are from RST help section

What features are supported on each I/O controller hub (ICH)?

Personal install (ver. 10.6.0.1002) Notes(just in case you may run into the situations):
1. You have to restart after the install
2. Personal experience on two systems: One had to do a second re-boot to get the console to start service(.net service) and on second system had to do a re-install over the original and second re-boot to get service to start(.net service)
3. other than that no problems running(operating as should)

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

iata_enu_*.exe -A -A -P C:\ich

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.

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?
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.
