I recommend you download the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology version 126.96.36.1994 from the following URL:
That version should not have any problems, but if the issue persist then it could be that your operating system is corrupted.
Great to get a response, which is much appreciated.
Before I follow your suggestion, you should know that as far as I have seen for the more than 2 weeks I have been using the V:11 drivers, everything works perfectly and currently I have no issues.
But obviously appearances can be deceiving and probably I could end up with a disaster because of improper controller and driver.
I am a physician and my nature is to always learn more.
So I am begging your indulgence and would like to ask comments as to why the V:11 is working for me, so well.
none of the Intel RST drivers 11.x.x.xxxx natively do support the Intel SATA AHCI Controller of systems with an Intel ICH7R/M Southbridge, because the related HardwareIDs are missing within the iaAHCI.inf resp. iaAHCIC.inf files.
Although you may be able to get these drivers working by forcing the installation, you should keep in mind, that the Intel RST drivers v11.x.x.xxxx were and are not designed at all for ICH7M AHCI systems.
The last official Intel RST drivers, which natively do support ICH7R and ICH7M SATA AHCI Controllers, are v10.1.0.1008 WHQL.

Is the V:10.6 the same as the V:10.1?
After having checked the INF files of all recently released Intel RST drivers I have to correct myself:
You can use any Intel RST drivers v10.x.x.xxxx and even v188.8.131.526, which is the last one without the additional SCSI filter driver named iaStorF.sys.
All Intel RST drivers from v11.5.x.xxxx up natively do not support ICH7R/ICH7M SATA AHCI Controllers.
