The reason was to see how many hard drives and their arrangement. TomTom shows 3 operating systems in his avatar. The photo shows 1 hard drive and one operating system. That's confusing to me.

Yeah, there were but I got rid of them temporarily. I've just not updated my profile.

Like I said Im no expert with this, why is mine different, I do have the option in device manager to install that driver, is it worth it Solarmystic. Im running an ssd though

Danny
Yours is a custom one by Intel. Keep what you have, it could be better than the generic one by Windows. The one shown by the OP is a generic AHCI driver by Microsoft.

For a reference point, here's mine after updating it with the Intel INF utlity:-

Attachment 220548
Updating with Intel INF utility doesn't change the driver, it just gives that device a new name. Both yours and Danny's pics indicate you have the reference Microsoft driver. Which is, as far as I know, equal in performance with the Intel ones.
