Updating intel matrix storage manager
A common problem following the replacement of a hard drive (or other low-level storage-related change, such as a storage driver or interface change) is a broken Windows Update.
I’ve been seeing this more and more frequently, in fact, on Windows 7 machines after performing drive recoveries and installing a new drive.
Since building a new PC with RAID1 drivers, several times my system has slowed and I discover the array is Verifying and Repairing, but both disks have Normal status.
I can find nothing that indicates WHY it decides to repair to avoid the problem.
Installing Intel Rapid Storage driver and utility (fka Intel Matrix Storage) on Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 (and Windows Server 2008 R2 Core) Scroll down for Testing hard drive failure information.
For a scenario describing this configuration, visit the Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 SP1 on Intel SATA page.
Not sure if it was caused by the RST update, by the boot problems, by some of my other manual changes (not listed here) or what..When it is a Card item, they sometimes have jumpers or different firmware or firmware changes that can turn the rom itself on or off.I dont know what exactally the situation here is list of possibles If it was based only on a option card, and the card is not there, not working or seated improperly or has jumpers to disable it OR its rom.It’s been documented in other places as well that this is in fact the root of the problem.Problem is, there are different versions of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager for each manufacturer — so it isn’t always possible to simply download the latest version directly from Intel and install it.
