Can't use ssd for EZ smart response

I've a corsair ssd 60GB with the latest firmware 1.3
And I wanted to use EZ smart response from gigabyte
When I run eZ smart response it reboots windows to configure my setting to RAID and it does that

But after that the ssd does not appear in intel rapid storage technology even though it's in bios and in win explorer
I even tried running smart response from gigabyte and gave me error that I need irst 10.5 or higher (I have 10.5) I download the latest version from intel but still the same error

Might be an oversight on your part maybe not. The latest firmware for the force 3 & GT series is 1.3.3.

You can be confident then that it is not the SSD causing it. The problem must be somewhere else. Just have to track it down.

Sounds like it is something between the gigabyte & intel programs.

I Thought about that but I downloaded every thing from gigabyte and it didn't work then I updated from intel
Anyway I've contacted gigabyte and I'm hoping that they'll answer
But I wanted to know if someone had this issue and fixed it
