Windows 7: iastor.sys related BSOD

My C: drive is a 750 GB tied via RAID to a SSD...I believe that's the setup. But last time I tried a clean install it could not find a drive to install it on. When I read the tutorial it said I would need RAID drivers to find the drive in order to install.

Going to wipe the drive and just want to maximize my success with this.

Thanks for your time.

Then it should be the one usually listed a floppy raid driver or something to that effect.

OK. I'm trying a clean install doing everything the tutorial told me to. I went to the folder on the drive with my drivers and it said it cannot find signed drivers. I am going to wipe but how will I be able to do the clean install if the software is not finding the drivers for the C: drive? Just trying to understand this.

Thanks for your time

What folder on what drive are you referring to, and how does this relate to the steps given in tutorial on how to handle drivers - which are quite specific?

Clean Install Windows 7
step 8 talks about RAID drivers. I just copied the drivers from system32/drivers to a thumb drive. When I started the install it asked for a driver and then navigated to that folder. It came back with the error that no signed drivers were found.

You do not have RAID so that does not pertain to you. Be sure to read closely and follow the steps for handling drivers in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

I think I do have RAID.

Days ago I told you that your Disk Mgmt shows you do not have RAID:



Are you trying to RAID the drives now? I would not do this unless you have a specific need for RAID which Win7 does not like and causes many problems with install.

The RAID control panel you show does not seem to show it in a RAID now, only a separate 30gb cache drive which is fine to keep enabled.

If you've not done anything since screenshot was made then it does not appear you have RAID since the second drive is shown separately as Data I.

No I'm trying to RAID. I was just showing you what was in my "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" control center. It made me think I had RAID.

I am not sure how to disable it, nor am I sure how to set AHCI. I've googled it and am out of ideas on how to do this.

I know this is trying and I apologize. Thank you for your time and patience.

No prob. Both screenshots don't show that it is RAID'ed.

The Intel Control Panel shows a hidden 30gb cache partition that is fine to keep as it is. I would read about this in the Manual on the HP Support Downloads page for your model.

I don't think you need to change anything as long as it's set the same as when you made the Disk Mgmt screenshot. But I would unplug the data drive if possible to do the reinstall so there's no chance it interferes.

iaStor.sys BSOD

I did the scans both in and out of safe mode. I've also reinstalled the driver...
