    Minimum requirement for Intel Rapid Storage Tech

    Hormel

      I tried installing this:

      the instillation failed because my system did not meet the minimum requirements.  These can bee seen here:

      Here are my specs:

      Dell Inc.
      Model    0RY007 (Socket 775)
      Chipset Vendor    Intel
      Chipset Model    P35/G33/G31
      Chipset Revision    A2
      Southbridge Vendor    Intel
      Southbridge Model    82801IR (ICH9R)
      Southbridge Revision    02

      Intel Core Duo

       

      I'm not sure what part of my system caused the install to fail.  Does anyone know?

          Hi there!

           

          That message appears when you are installing the Intel Rapid Storage but your system is not running AHCI or RAID mode, or you do not have an Intel(R) chipset supporting any of those SATA modes.

          Also, this happens when you download a version for a different operating system, (32 or 64) bit.

           

          Thanks

          Allan..

            I am almost certain I installed the correct version for my operating system.  I'm sure it is failing because my SATA controller is currently set to IDE.  You may remember from the other thread of mine you responded to that I'm trying to enable AHCI.  I've read a few places that my chipset is capable of supporting AHCI.  In my BIOS there is no option for the AHCI SATA controller; however, there is one for RAID.  Is it possible to enable/install an AHCI controller if it does not originally come on board in the BIOS but the chipset does support it?
