One more thing: untill today i used raid and chipset drivers provided with windows 7.
Today i installed fresh Intel Chipset Device Software, and rebooted - but that also didn't help - RST setup is still crashing.
Additionally: i checked RST in versions 10.0.0.1046, 10.1.0.1008 and 10.1.2.1004
10.1.2.1004 setup actually works and even tell it was installed fine, although - wired thing - it installs in C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology with only uninstall directory inside, and the install log is telling:
Checking for admin rights
Admin rights OK
OS check OK
Checking .NET configuration
.NET check OK
Checking platform size
! Didn't find any INF's that match active hardware
strange, strange things...
my Bios is updated,
i don't have NIC,
and this "Error Occurred" is because one of my raid drives got bad sectors (only in unused space) - like i said it's nothing new for me, i just need RST and it's Verify to fix it <sigh>
Also “turn off hard disk after” to “never” in power options gives nothing.
