Bios the rapid updating
My question is, can I upgrade my Windows Intel RST driver to the newest version (v126.96.36.1996) even though my BIOS still uses the older version of RST for the hardware?
Would there be any benefit/drawbacks to upgrading my Windows RST driver to v188.8.131.526?
Thanks When you load the optimized defaults or update to another BIOS version, the settings go back to default. So naturally you will have to setup your RAID array again. By setting the controller to RAID the array should be visible and functioning as was the case with all my previous ROG boards.It had, and since I had not upgraded the BIOS after building my PC, I chose to go for upgrade. You download the file, put it into a FAT-32 formatted USB-stick. One of them has an option to display the contents of the USB-stick and load the file, upgrade the BIOS and ... It has the option to create RAID volume on RAID-ready drives: More importantly, it has the possibility of not erasing data on a single disc: When accepted, the rebuild process starts. I checked the manuals Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) User guides, but didn't see anything that would help. Looks like drive(s) don't have any headers and if necessary, can act as a single drive: Naturally when Windows sees two drives instead of one, it means that there is no RAID.For those with with fresh experience: both former RAID1 members are seen in Windows as regular drives (full access to content), as long as no attempt is made to recreate array in legacy mode (from BIOS). I am running an Asus P8P67 Pro motherboard with the newest BIOS revision 3602.

It is a pain to have to set up the arrays again after every BIOS flash or clear CMOS and restore backups.
