Driver Selection for Intel H67 Chipset

I have a Micro Center PowerSpec B670 desktop and I am doing an ISO installation of Windows7.

 

The motherboard is a H67H2-CM with four SATA ports, and there are 2 x 1TB SATA HDDs installed. I want to reload the system with RAID 1. BIOS is configured for RAID, but I need to know which Intel driver (downloaded from Micro Center website) to select during an F6 install.

 

The choices for the embedded AHCI Controller are:

    - Intel(R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) 5 Series 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH10D/DO SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) EP80579 SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH9R/DO/DH SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH8M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH8R/DH/DO SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ESB2 SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH7M/MDH SATA AHCI Controller

    - Intel(R) ICH7R/DH SATA AHCI Controller

 

Best guess I can make are either #1 or #4.

 

Thanks,

Steve

You are in RAID mode, not AHCI, so none of these drivers is appropriate. You need to have the Intel RST Storage drivers during the installation of the OS. These are provided in a separate ZIP file (F6FLPY) from the Intel RST package (which you install once the OS is completed its install). I have attached the versions that I have.

Hope this helps,

Thanks very much for your expertise!
I used the OEM driver with your selection and Win7 has been loaded without any further issues.
