Help me please Need to Switch to ahci from irst

I have Been getting bsod xd1 from iastora.sys I have come to the conclusion that I want it gone and want to switch to ahci and get rid of irst. Only problem is I heard you have to reinstall to do that and I don't want to. I really need this done and I'm scared because I get bsod in the middle of dayz and writing papers and its annoying.

What is your current SATA controller mode setting in BIOS setup?

IRST is not a storage controller mode but a driver that gets installed for your hardware which if not needed for RAID can be disabled in Services.msc as explained in this thread: Intel Rapid Storage Technology boot slowing

I have found out my problems are a result of a keylog. I checked event viewer and it has 45k events all warnings and errors going back to october. I need to fix this now.

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware.com - Downloads and your AV. What is your AV?

Report back what it finds.

What are the other settings choices besides Intel Rapid Storage technology?

How do you know you have a keylogger?

Is it a virus or malware detected by some security software, or is it a program you installed on your own? If so, just uninstall though control panel, or else, your antivirus may help.
Anyway, what has that to do with the event viewer and its many events? Often, malware, or even normal keyloggers don't write to it to avoid detection, I think.
