Hello JTims1,  

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

  


In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  


  


1. Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.  


· Download the Intel® SSU and save the application on your computer: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/18377/25293/intel-system-support-utility-for-window...  


· Open the application, check the "Everything" checkbox, and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. The Intel® SSU defaults to the "Summary View" on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".  


· To save your scan, click Next and click Save.  


  

2. What is the version of the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) installed?

I do not get many details from your "NO", but what I understand is that you do not want me to continue with the support, Perhaps the community member may help you with your issue.

Anyways, just from reading through The Ridiculous amount of info, I dont think what i bought will work! Thanks! This is Such a Joke! S i gotta buy your nvme products, that are old and slow, then maybe? it will work? NONE of this info was plainly laid out! not in the manual, so hard to look through this complete web of excuses. So please fix it, it is a bios adjustment. i am not wendel from level1 techs, but i have been doing this just as long 33 years or more. I got $1000 invested into just, trying to make a Vroc Drive, super fast and cheep storage.

Hi,

 

did you manage to solve your problem? I'm having same Asus Hyper card, and even older

motherboard (Intel2600CW). I planned to do same thing as you did, but now after reading

this I'm hesitant. Did you manage to solve your problem? Maybe try PM961 instead 960 PRO

SSD, its same SSD but PM961 supposedly made for "professional" environment.

There's a List of Drives, and they are only intel drives, You can make That card work in a AMD system, because intel cand just rig there bios and software to accept only, there drives. No One From intel has Replied, Because They dont want To Admit to it. I can put 1 drive in and it shows up, but what is the point?
