Windows 7: Intel RAID (ICH5) 82801ER SATA Controller

Intel RAID (ICH5) 82801ER SATA Controller

Dear guys,

I am running into a very strange issue:
I was checking my setup the WIN7-Readyness-Software and received no issues. Installing WIN7 x86 fails with the statement, that the startup configuration cannot be changed.

I tried allmost everything and did not succeed - except when disabling RAID to normal disks. So, my assumption is, that there is an incompability with the driver.

(I also lowered security for C:, C:\boot, etc. to EVERYONE - no cure)
I formatted the disks completly - no cure.
I tried tu upgrade from XP, VISTA - still, no cure.

The strangest thing is: I hade the beta (WIN7) running, but had to re-install, due to a drive failiure and drive replacement (RAID0). Now I am running RAID1. (Yes, I also tried the whole thing with RAID0).

I am using the latest driver: 5.5.0.1035.

ANY IDEAS????

Apreciation and regards,
Stefan

I am informed by the Microsoft windows 7 upgrade checker that Intel (who always claim that they have a good relationship with Microsoft) will not be providing a driver for the 83801EP (AMD all is forgiven).

I have been trying to source an alternative route eg IDE to SATA card or PCI to SATA card.

Has anyone solved this problem or even better is anyone from Intel vaguely interested in keeping customers happy.

I have been advised by Gigabyte that they are aware of the situation but have no actual solution.

I am now looking at disabling the mother board SATA Raid (ICH5R) and connecting the existing SATA disk using a seperate Raid hard disk controller.

Not sure however if this will work as the gigabyte manual is unclear.

Hi,
for me the solution was the folloving:
Intel matrix driver 5.5 (this is the last release) and I did put a normal IDE unit for boot. So the initial boot start from the PATA drive and the rest of come from the SATA.
