    Intel AHCI driver for IBM ThinkPad X60s laptop

    DmitriyA

      Hi All,

       

      Where can I obtain the right Intel AHCI driver for use with IBM ThinkPad X60s laptop (Mobile Intel 945GM chipset / ICH7-M southbridge) with SATA set to AHCI mode in BIOS? I understand this driver (iastor.sys?) is part of Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver pack - should I just take the latest version 14.8.0.1042 of RST Driver dated 12/14/2015 available at Downloads?

      Download Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver

       

      Also could anyone please confirm if this driver is better than storahci.sys I have now, and ideally explain what exactly at? The SSD in this X60s is Intel X25-M G1, so I'd personally expect Intel driver to do better.

       

      Many thanks in advance!
