Windows 7: OCZ Toolbox not woking

WIN 7 Ultimate x64
OCZ Toolbox not woking

I have an OCZ Vertex 2, 60TB SSD I use for boot/apps. A 150GB Raptor for storage.

The other day I downloaded the latest OCZ Toolbox to do some checking/maintenace. The Toolbox could not find my Vertex drive. I inquired around and was advised the Toolbox only works with Windows AHCI drivers and not Intel drivers.

Now I have been taken on Snipe hunts before. Even have gone looking for a bucket of steam for the power house. But I have a long memory. Even though it is "write only" sometimes.

Was the advice given me plausible?
If so how would I remove the present driver and install a Windows 7 one?

I have imaged this drive so I can try things without fear. Those Snipe hunts taught something.

In device manager, under disk drives, check to see what driver your vertex is using, it'll either be from intel or ms...

If it was updated to intel, you may need to roll back or do an update and force it to use the ms one, then after you've done whatever you want with the ocz toolbox, you can get the latest intel ahci drivers, I recommend for the latest whql drivers...

I believe this was only a problem with certain intel drivers, I think the newer ones 10.5 and above work correctly with the toolbox... I know mine do and I'm using 10.6.1002, but I'm in raid mode.....
