Windows 7: Intel Rapid Storage Drivers

Intel Rapid Storage Drivers

A suite of drivers was provided with my Asus motherboard. I could see a good reason for installing most of them but not the Rapid Storage set as I never intend to have a raid setup. After reading several posts on this forum, I am wondering whether there may be other reasons for installing these drivers. I would be pleased if someone could enlighten me.
Thanks

Hello Keith,

The Intel RST drivers also include AHCI for your SATA devices. It is recommended to be installed.

Thanks for the quick reply Brink.
Possibly the source of some of my problems I am now wondering. I also picked up they should be installed before first boot so will make sure I do that well.
