Please bear in mind you are currently running an old chipset controller that it is not compatible with Windows® 10.
The latest AHCI driver you need would be Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager version 8.9
See the list of supported operating systems here: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/17882/eng/readme.txt
the driver you've linked to is an RST driver for a RAID configuration, not the AHCI driver i am asking about that will best function in Windows 10.
when will Intel provide an updated driver that is for Windows 10? what is the best AHCI driver to use currently?
here's the info from the link clearly showing these are for RAID:
The files below contain the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager. This record also includes downloadable F6 floppy configuration utilities (32-bit and 64-bit). These utilities create floppy disks containing the RAID driver files to be used during the installation of Microsoft* Windows*.
