    Matrix Raid Driver version 10.1.0.1008 Fails on RAID0 X58

    Kin-Hell

      Hi.

       

      Set up here is the Following:

       

      Gigabyte X58-UD7 V1.0 Mobo with 6GB Tri Channel Ram @ 1600Mhz.

      Water cooled i7 2.8Ghz CPU @ 4.2Ghz.

      MSI GTX580 Lightning.

      Zotac 1GB 9800GT

      Creative X-Fi Titanium

      Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB SATA 6Gb/s

      3 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA-II 16MB drives in RAID0

      Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-212

      Powered by PCP&C 1KW Quad SLI PSU

      OS Win 7 X64

       

      Currently using the default Micro$oft installed RAID Driver 8.6.2.1015 dated 06/08/210

       

      After re-booting from installing the Latest IRST 10.1.0.1008 drivers, the rig never boots into windows.

      The Win7 Logo is still animated, but no matter how long it is left, I never see the desktop. Re-setting the Rig & selecting use last known working Boot from the F8 Menu, I am @ the desktop in less than 30 seconds on the 8.6.2.1015's.

       

      OS is Service Pack 1 with all available updates there after installed. There appear to be 12 more Optional Hardware updates @ the time of writing, but no mention of Intel Raid patches.

       

      Whats wrong with IRST 10.1.0.1008?

       

      Regards.

          Driver version  9.6.0.1014 works fine, still leaving 10.1.0.1008 appearing to have a serious bug....

            After posting in here:

             

            http://communities.intel.com/message/124867#124867

             

            a guest advised me of a known Optical Bug.

             

            So for taking off the Pioneer DVR-212, the 10.1.0.1008 driver installs & works. Once the Pioneer DVR-212 is replaced to the Matrix cluster, no boot again.

             

            Obviously a bit of a serious bug in the Intel driver & the first I have ever experienced in 15 years of Intel useage. First time for everything I guess....

             

            Anyone know of a Beta greater than 10.1.0.1008 or release date for an official update?

             

            Wondering if this is a knock on thing from the Sandybridge fiasco?

              This gets worse & is not as clear cut as I thought it was....

               

              If I run the Pioneer Optical drive on one of the GigaByte headers & then install 10.1.0.1008 drivers, sure, the CD/DVDROM works fine, but when writing a large file to any partition on either the 2TB Seagate or the 3 x RAID0 stripe, as soon as the process completes, the computer goes into BSOD.

               

              Reverting back to IRST 9.6.0.1014 and everything is fine with no BSOD & with the Pioneer Optical Drive still on the Gigabyte SATA header. I already know if I shove the Pioneer back onto the Matrix Headers with IRST 9.6.0.1014, all will still be good as it is with the IRST 8.8.0.1009 drivers....

              Logic would dictate this is not a Pioneer bug, but an Intel one. I have used Pioneer Optical devices for the last 6/7 years & always on an Intel based rig without any issues in the slightest; 875 Canterwood, P35, P45, X48 & finally X58 to date.

               

              Having witnesed atrocities like this on AMD/Other Chipset based rigs of many moons ago, seeing this on Intel architecture in this day & age is rather sad to say the least.

                Is there any real way to contact Intel about there still not being a driver update yet or are these forums just for anyone to breeze in & post willy nilly, without any Intel Authority to hand?
