    Updating from Matrix Storage Manager to Rapid Storage Technology

    lienesch

      Hi All,

       

      I'm running a Core i7 motherboard with two X25-M SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration with Windows 7 Pro x64.  The RAID is controlled by the Intel Matrix Storage Manager v8.8.  I'd like to update that to the latest Rapid Storage Technology drivers and console.  An Intel support page said just run the suftware and reboot.  It sounds easy.

       

      However, in the installation readme file, it says, "The 'Intel(R) Chipset Software Installation Utility' must be installed on the system after a supported Microsoft Windows operating system has been installed."  I've checked the download page and there are 58 matching results for this utility.  They're pretty old.  None of them mentions the X58 chipset.  I can't figure out which one to install.  What should I do?

       

      Also, where can I find out what improved functionality I would be getting with the upgrade?  Thanks!
