It looks like new RST drivers are out, but the download page only has the 32 bit driver. Anybody have any ideas why the 64 bit driver isn't updated?
Possibly because it's only just been released. Give it a few days at least. I noticed the download become available via the RSS feed for RST, however, when browsing the download center [Chipsets > RST > ] it wasn't listed ~12 hours ago. It now is. So i'd expect the 64-bit equivalent, as well as an updated RST installer package, to follow shortly.
They do have 64bit driver , when you get to the download page click view all than you will see the 64 bit driver. It's there you just have to look for it.
Yes Robert Gifford but you couldn't post that 6 hours ago because only the 32 bits were showing at the time.
Now interestingly the iata_cd.exe is not the same size from station-drivers then the one from Intel even though they are both 10.1.0.1008 however the Driver .sys is the same so I guess their was more done in the GUI.
6 Hrs ago , I was finishing up restoring the Laptop that I'm giving to my 4 Yr.Old grand daughter for Christmas. Merry Christmas , I'll Be off line for a while , Happy Holidays. Bob.
Just to let you know that I tried the 10.1.0.1008 RST drivers and my Win 7 x64 explorer started getting hickups and hang very often. I even did a fresh install but same explorer.exe hanging probelms would arise. Reverted back to 9.6 drtivers.
I have a very similar problem, albeit with hard Disks.
Default RAID Driver 126.96.36.1995 as per Win7 X64 install is fine as is 188.8.131.524.
Once I install the 10.1.0.1008 drivers, the computer fails to boot. It starts to & then no more HD LED activity. Just a Win7 Boot Logo still animated & no keyboard CAPS key response.
Sounds like the Optical drive bug... there's been a few cases of certain Pioneer SATA optical drives doing that with RST 10.1 drivers. Apparently The releases since aren't affected, and an official 10.5 release is pending any day I think...
If you have an optical drive, try disconnecting it so it doesn't boot up. See if you can then get into windows. Then you can either revert the driver, stop using the optical drive, or something i tested: plugg the optical drive back in once windows has booted. since it;s AHCI, it will detect and install the driver... from then on, I couldn't get the boot up freeze to reoccur. The only time it did is if you change the physical connection layout of the SATA drives.
