I recently moved from Windows 7 RC -> Windows 7 Ultimate (full version). Since doing so, for some reason I am getting a higher instance of notifications of my raid array being degraded and needing to be rebuilt.
I am using the on-board raid on my Gigabyte GA-EX58-EXTREME motherboard (ie. the Intel ICH10R controller). I was using the same with RC. It is usually telling me the 2nd drive has failed, but not always (sometimes a different drive has 'failed').
I believe this to be a driver issue or something, because I can right-click the drive, and tell it to mark as normal, and after 30 hours or so the raid array is fully reconstructed (I've had a failed drive before, and it could not complete a rebuild with that drive in the system). Thus I believe the physical drive is fine.
But even doing this, a few days later, the array is degraded again and one drive is marked as failed. I'm getting sick of constantly reconstructing my raid array. Does anyone have any ideas, or heard about any issues with the Intel Matrix driver? I'm using v22.214.171.1243 of the Intel Matrix Storage Console (which includes the driver). This is the latest version I see on Intel's website for the ICH10R controller.
PS. Anyone know why I could not post this in firefox? The window to type in stayed grey (but I could type in it), none of the buttons worked, and when I tried to submit it told me my 'message was too short'. Doing this in IE works fine.
