    Intel® Server Board S1200KP Problem.


      I' ve setup a mini itx homeserver with the following configuration:

      S1200KP Server board

      Xeon E3 1260L

      2*4GB Kingston ECC DDR3 Ram (KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G)

      3*1TB WD Green Drives as (Data Drives)

      1*160GB WD Caviar Blue Drive as System Drive.

      and a 450Watt SFX Silverstone Power Supply.


      My problem is setup in AHCI mode in which i am dealing with the following problem:


      My systems gives me multiple iastor errors "The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period"., whenever i install the Intel RST Driver which leads my system to freeze at the end and needs rebooting.

      Whenever i uninstall the RST Driver and leave the system with the Generic Microsoft AHCI Driver included in Windows Home Server 2011 (Windows Server 2008 R2 Based), i do not get any error of this kind....and the system looks and operates fine.


      Do you have any ideas what might be a possible cause of this (driver related errors) and a possible solution to it?


      PS: I have followed the solutions found in various forums regarding SSD's Freezing within Vista or Windows 7 with the same type of error in the event viewer in which the concluded that the coolpit was the Intel LPM implementation in recent RST driver releases, but with no success.
