DQ670W Rapid storage technology or Matrix will not load under windows 8

Hello,

I am new here but have searched for this and can't find anything.

I have loaded windows 8.1 setup as raid 1. Everything seems to be running fine except I cannot get any version of Intel matrix storage or Intel rapid storage to load. This leaves me with no way to get errors should a drive fail in windows 8.

Is there a way to load the software for this MB and OS? Is there some other way to find a drive status besides the intel software. I have loaded the drives and they work fine.

Thanks

Welcome to Intel communities Tazdevil. I will be more than glad to assist you on your inquire.

 

I was able to search on the downloadcenter, that the RST version available is 11.7. There is a newer version 12.9 that you can try to install on your system. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23496&ProdId=2101&lang=eng&OSVersion... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23496&ProdId=2101&lang=eng&OSVersion...

Please let me know if this new version of the RST worked on your system.

 

Something very important is that Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 is not fully compatible with this motherboard. The support is limited due to discontinuance of the board, however there are driver available.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply.

I have loaded those drivers and the RAID array is working but I am looking for the install to give me the program shown below.

Or some other program that I will get errors from if the array fails.

The driver I sent you is the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology software. So if you already downloaded it on your system, it should be under programs. Please check it out and let me know.

I am sorry I finally noticed the last choice was

File name:

SetupRST.exe

That has worked !!!!
