Hello Ghoy, please note that the Intel Rapid Storage Technology is not a requirement for the Solid State Drive to work properly, I suggest you to uninstall that software and test the system again.
You can try also to perform a full diagnostic and see if you get any specific error message, if you do not get any error then that means that the Solid State Drive is working properly and the issue might be related with software issue or an integration issue.
Thank you for replying,
I did know that the Intel Rapid Storage Technology is not a requirement for the drive tho at the time of the installation I figured that having an Intel based AHCI controler would be more beneficial on the long run since I am using an Intel drive.
Obviously I was wrong, I took your recommendation and I've uninstalled the driver and the application all together and I have not been having issues since then which only confirmed my original hypothesis that in fact the most likely cause of the problem was the Intel AHCI driver power management.
Thank you for the support,
