Should I use Intel RAID Driver During Windows 7 Install?
I have two hard drives configured in fake/motherboard RAID 0 (p67). I'm about to install Windows 7, and I'm not sure if I should load the Intel RST RAID drivers during the install.
Now I know Windows 7 doesn't NEED RAID drivers to install on an array, however I see there are drivers on Intel's site that specify 'Windows 7' and I was wondering whether they might be in some way "improved" over the default Windows driver?
The notes say "The F6 installation method is not required for Microsoft Windows Vista or Microsoft Windows 7...", but then why even list Windows 7 in the 'Operating Systems' list?
