Windows 7: Intel Rapid Storage Drivers

Intel Rapid Storage Drivers

A suite of drivers was provided with my Asus motherboard. I could see a good reason for installing most of them but not the Rapid Storage set as I never intend to have a raid setup. After reading several posts on this forum, I am wondering whether there may be other reasons for installing these drivers. I would be pleased if someone could enlighten me.
Thanks
Keith

Hello Keith,

The Intel RST drivers also include AHCI for your SATA devices. It is recommended to be installed. :)

Thanks for the quick reply Brink.
Possibly the source of some of my problems I am now wondering. I also picked up they should be installed before first boot so will make sure I do that well.
