    Intel RST installation incorrectly sets hard drive media type Windows 8.1 Pro x64

    s_b_o_s

      Hope someone can help me here.

       

      After a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro my media type is correctly set under the analyse and optimise function. This is using the in box drivers of Windows 8.1. When I install the latest RST and update the RAID drivers, the media type changes to SSD which is incorrect. The analyse and optimise buttons are now greyed out and I can no longer defrag the hard drives.

       

      I have taken many steps to try and correct this issue but still no luck. The BIOS is set to UEFI and it correctly identifies the HDD. I have also used the F6 driver installation of the latest RAID driver during the Windows install. Media type is still set to SSD.

       

      Intel RST status correctly states that SATA HDD are connected. So is it a Windows problem?

       

      Very frustrating. Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Surely Im not the only person in the world with this problem.

       

      Kind Regards
