If you are experiencing this behavior since you installed the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology you may want to uninstall the software.
We can try going to “control panel” > “programs” > “programs and features”. Then look for the software and click uninstall.
The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology is used to optimize the storage performance and reliability of the system, using RAID technology. Since your system is not RAID ready, this program is not necessary.
If for any change you are still having the same behavior, you can try doing a system restore.

Program & features won't remove the Intel AHCI driver. A system restore might be problematic in this specific scenario, not to mention that it is disabled. So I did the following:
- Uninstalled the software
- Deleted the driver from the Device manager
- Cleaned the registry
Can't say that the system is back to normal but it's back to 90%. Now the system is on the MS AHCI drivers
The only thing left from the Intel RST is a file called iastorf.sys which I can see in the driver file details for the SSDs & HDDs. Do you think I should delete it also???
Anyway, thanks for everything. You are the only one who tried to help

I'm glad to know that your system is working at least a 90%.
Even though you erased almost all the files link to this software, there are some register keys or files that cannot be remove manually.
The only way to delete all programs and register files related to RST, will be by a clean installation of the operating system.
That's exactly what I thought.
So any idea what this file driver iastorf.sys is? & can it be deleted safely??
I came over to open the program since I installed the "Intel chipset installer package" program, a message "An error occurred while running the application. If the problem persists restart the computer and try to reinstall the application. "I rebooted the computer and try to reinstall it, but neither do anything. I looked into "extra help" in the software error. "An unknown error occurred while running the application. If the problem persists, restart the computer and try to reinstall the application.
This error may be due to the following reasons:
■ Missing Components
■ Application damaged
■ Application unable to connect to the service
■ The application fails to start

I then tried to uninstall, but impossible, yet the Intel uninstall its trigger with the progress bar and the program is always present. I ran a SFC / scan "no violation" and a chkdks nothing as well. How corrected this problem. Thanks for your help.
Ziad, that file is part of the installation files saved on your system when you download the RST. You may delete it.
Could you please open a new discussion thread as your issue is not the same as the one that is been discussed here and we will be glad to assist you
Also, provide a dxdiag report from your system to get further details on the computer being used. To get this report, go to the Start menu, type dxfiag and then click on "Save all information"
Will all do respect to everybody but this forum would be a lesser place without you
