    DX58SO + BIOS 5529 + Intel RST + Windows 7 x64 SP1 on SSD = no boot


      As the title suggests:


      DX58SO board + BIOS version 5529 + Windows 7 x64 SP1 installed on SSD


      After installing Intel RST driver Windows hangs after reboot.


      Only hard reboot helps, and it is not possible to enter Windows unless you do a System Restore or revert to a Last Known Good configuration.


      I am currently using default Windows 7 drivers (version which are quite old.


      What I tried so far:


      1. I have installed SP1 onto an existing Windows 7 installation residing on Kingston SSDNow V+, and then tried to install Intel RST.

      2. I have installed Windows 7 with built-in SP1 (original Microsoft image) onto new blank OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, and tried again to install Intel RST.


      Both installations led me to unusable Windows which hangs during boot.
