Windows 7: SSD controller?

Intel RST has been installed and is working just fine. Missing drivers isn't the issue... the issue is that the device manager sees the MS driver as the latest, which it is, and even when I point it to the Intel drivers, it refuses to install them, only saying that I already have the latest drivers. At this point, the only option I have is "close"... there is no way I can find to force the install.

I've been googling this since I discovered Trim doesn't work with the Marvell driver and I switched to the Intel 6GB port. I'm not sure why this is the case, but so far it is.

Just as a suggestion uninstall the RST. reinstall it. I agree that you should be able to choose. That's the way my system works.

I would... if there were any hope that uninstalling the RST driver would also uninstall the MS achi driver, but it would not. I would still be left with the MS ahci driver.

When you tried to switch ahci drivers was iastor listed?

No, iastore isn't listed under the Vertex 3 because previously I was using the Marvell driver; however, it was installed prior to switching and it was showing up in the taskbar.

The iastoreUI always displayed my storage drive and my optical drive.. but not my ssd until I started using the Intel sata port... now it shows up.

What steps did you go through to switch drivers?

edit

I've tried a few times a few different ways of getting this driver in. Manually through the device manager and online with Intel update utility. I ran the update utility from Intel's site and from the local machine... I also heard that it wouldn't stick if you tried using an internal hdd or an optical drive (since they were connected to sata ports and this would apparently cause a problem) so I tried it the way they recommend... off a flash drive. No joy.

So far, what I've read is that the "only" way to get the Intel ahci driver installed is to do it while Windows is installing. If you know of some vodoo ... I'm all ears.

Fumz, did you ever get the iastor driver installed?

Yeah, I ended up doing a clean install and loaded the Intel drivers during the install.

However, while all this was going on I got an Asus rep to say, in writing, that the Marvell controller supports Trim. I am currently pressing her on whether or not the Marvell driver passes along the signal. She's been a good sport, I can't wait for her reply. It's been a 5 mail back and forth getting what I thought was a really simple question answered.

Your drivers are setup correctly according to the screen you provided. Any SSD with Sandforce controllers should always be setup on the Intel P67 chipset that supports the M4E board.

Really nice board, just finishing up my review for this board for ASUS and it is worth the money for the features it brings.

I think it is too. I looked real hard at it before I bought the Asrock extreme4. It has just about all the features you need. Asus did good on that board.
