Last night I was doing some driver updating, mainly going to Intel RST 12.5 and a few other changes. One of them being setting up Intel Rapid Start on my system. Everything went fine after one reboot I was able to sleep the system and wake it up with out issue. Shortly there after though on the second reboot I received a BOSD error relating to "Knowndll verification failure". Now I am stuck at this situation, I know I could probably reinstall windows after wiping the volumes but I really would like to avoid having to do that. Below are a few more pieces of information about my system
Windows 7 SP2 Professional edition
Board: ROG Maximus GENE V
CPU: Intel 3750k
RAM: 16 gigs
On Intel controller: 2x Intel 80gb SSD in a RAID 0 (windows boot drive), 1x Patriot 60gb SSD
Asmedia controller: 2x 2TB WD drives
Currently the 2x Intels are in a RAID 0 with the rapid start partition on the Patriot 60 gig.
I have access to the raid drive with what seems like all the information is there and intact, chksdk reports no errors on the boot drive. I can boot off a USB to bootable copy of windows xp and see all the files including the Windows directory. The system currently does not see any restore points on the drive.
I would really like to avoid having to reinstall Windows on this system. Is there anyway I could uninstall RST and Rapid Start just from getting access to the drive to see if I can boot with out those pieces in play. I have tried using utilities to disable the Intel RST driver but it still results in the BOSD. Are there any suggestions or getting the system booting again?
Rapid Start can be “disabled” on the BIOS. Have you tried that? Please let me know.
Then, once you are on Windows you can uninstall the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology if you continue having issues with it.
