Windows 7: Intel RST production drivers

20 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 64 bit SP1
Intel RST production drivers

These are the best performers so far for me. I was getting varying boot times on my 128 GB 840 PRO with the previous production version, now these are dead on for a consistent 14 second windows boot. YMMV

Thanks Geno! There sure seems like a lot of "known issues" with it though. I'm still on 10.0...something.

How long have you been running it? Your times look great! I downloaded it but I think I'll wait on some history to accumulate before I install it.

This is the one that bothered me the most. I'm not positive but isn't this "chkdsk"?

No problem here on Windows 7. I have 3 spinning disk, a Crucial M4, and a Samsung 840 Pro running with this driver and have not encountered any issues over a week of running. I did see someone post they had a crash that miht have been driver related in Winds 8, FWIW.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

Since version 11.6.x.xxxx, Intel have produce a different IRST including two files: iaStorA.sys & iaStorF.sys and it had been quite a mess for me to update on Raid controller.

Far easier when running AHCI in bios!!

Looks those last one are quite good, got them since a week but haven't installed yet as i've to unmount my raid set-up!

Thanks Gene. Have you run a chkdsk /r to see if a drive degrades?

Thanks NoN. I haven't seen those. I always see iastor and iastorV. IastorV being the Raid driver.
