I downloaded the installer from Intel and ran it. So I did let it uninstall the old one before it put the new one. But you got me on the update of the chipset drivers. You are right, I have not done that yet. I stopped as soon as I found these entries. But I can still do this as you mentioned.
I also looked where you said the driver should go for the rollback; it is not there.
So let me get this straight (my head is foggy from other things right now). I should get the newer IRST, install it as it should remove the older files and send them to the filerepository and then install the newest files. Then I should update the chipset to the latest?
I can do this, I am not busy for the next few days. Question, that 18.104.22.1686 at the Intel site it does not have my board listed (X58). Does that mean the 22.214.171.1244 is the highest for my board?
I'll try the iastor and msahci to 3 and see and I will get back here.
First, feel easy & confident!
You have the choice to let all "as is" also. Looks quite correct to me actually, just update your Chipset Inf. but If...
I'm suggesting if you have spare time now, to uninstall all of the IRST from "program and features". Reboot will load the msahci.sys driver
(just check before if it is still set to "0" if you decide to uninstall IRST). On reboot don't allow Windows Update to search a driver for you, or disable it before the reboot! Don't move yourself any files anywhere!
After reboot check if there's any iaStor.sys (A & F included) left, in "System32\Drivers" folder only. Delete them if.
Delete the iaStor key registry entry, iaStorA & iaStorF keys in registry after uninstall & reboot (if they're still there). Don't delete the iaStorV Key & driver!
And this before updating Chipset v126.96.36.1996 (doesn't matter if it is not for your x58 Board, as it is already included in)
When ready run as administrator & install your WHQL Chipset v188.8.131.526, reboot even if not needed.
Install the latest IRST you have. Reboot takes effect and remap the drives
Check all is in order upon reboot.
It should go back itself to:
iaStorA = 0
iaStorF = 0
iaStorV = 3
msahci = 3 PS:
I'm suggesting you an uninstall because the IRST v184.108.40.2063 is too much different version from v220.127.116.116. That's maybe why iaStor.sys is still there in Drivers folder.
"install it as it should remove the older files and send them to the filerepository". This, is a bit of a mystery to me...it didn't backed up.
