Intel Rapid Storage Technology boot issue

    Windows 8 Pro x64


    Version 11.5.0.1207 has already been pulled from Intel's download center. They cause hangs while rebooting or problems at Windows startup. I uninstall them and use the latest WHQL for Windows 7, which are 11.2.0.1006 and they are working fine.

    The hangs I was getting when rebooting Windows 8 are gone now. The only problem I'm having is that my optical drive can't be accessed by ImgBurn or other burning software. I get no drives listed or errors. Bot my drives are connected to the Intel controller and are listed and visible in Windows Explorer and Device Manager.

    I'm looking into this as I write this to see what is the cause.

    Hello Gizbug,

    What version is the new one? I still only see the 11.5.2.1001 WHQL one.

    I reinstalled Windows 8 and leave it with the Windows default drivers. It have been working well. I would say that we are better with the default ones and wait for a proper and working release with official Windows 8 RTM support.

    How are they? With some beta versions, I noticed a little stuttering when browsing drives/folders and the rare ocassional hang when rebooting or sometimes at startup.

    I think I will keep the stock ones until Intel releases an official update to their website.
