    AHCI( Intel RST) Windows 8


    I'm going to turn AHCI (and install Windows 8 x64) for the first time. I've done a lot of researching and now I would like if anyone could provide me right link to install them after installing the Operating system with it's own AHCI drivers, and then just to install Intel's AHCI drivers from .exe file if it's possible.


    Many thanks

    Hello Jil,

    I get my Intel AHCI/SATA drivers at the Station Drivers link below. The latest versions are 11.7.1.1001 WHQL or 12.0.0.1083 beta.

    Thank you very much. The only thing that scares me is that this page is not in English and there's no 11.7.1.1001 that i could find as original, I found just this 11.7.0.1013 so I'm just wondering are this one that you recommended official and why aren't they on the page(I hope that i didn't miss the whole page ).

    And drivers that you pointed with red arrow, are they for every motherboard(chipset) and processor(intel) ?

    11.7.1.1001 should be there at the link I posted just right above the 11.7.0.1013 one.

    It's just that Intel hasn't released the official 11.7.1.1001 version on their site yet. It should work on all current motherboards.
