Hello Phnx, Thanks for joining Intel communities.
I am sorry to hear that have had issues with Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.
Please make sure you are using the latest version available of this software. If not please download from this URL https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=24006&lang=eng&ProdId=2101
I also found this thread from Windows Dev Center, that you can check. It gives some resolution that you may try.
Hi, thanks for your input. I am using the latest driver (and have tried many others) and the driver identified is definitely iaStorA.sys
Looks like it is definitely an issue with the RAID array as if I disconnect the 3 member HDDs, IRST opens fine and shows the boot drive
Well it seems to work fine with different drives (3x1TB) in RAID5, so I am currently copying 4.5TB data off the array onto external drives to reinitialise the main array and see if that fixes it...
Ok Phnx, I really hope this solves your problem
Well, looks like recreating the array has fixed it, still no idea why it didn't work before. Only took 24hrs to copy all the data off and back on...

I was actually getting the same issue in my struggle to setup a RAID 5 as well.
I *think* I resolved it by replacing the power supply with a intel 4xxx series compatible power supply. If the issue creeps back in this is something you might consider.
thinking about it a little ( since its been a few weeks since I had the issue ) , I think I experienced it when I installed Windows using the "F6" option drivers. That isn't required since Windows has drivers for the chip-set built in since Windows 7.
