Hello Richard, thanks for contacting us through the Intel Communities. Before I give a recommendation, I have a question:
What I understand from your post is that you want to upgrade your system to Windows 7, would you please let me know if you have a RAID 0, 1 or 5 on your system?
Also, are you using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology or the Matrix Storage Manager?
May I have the brand and model number of your system?
Remember that it is very important to back up all you data before making any change on your system.
You understanding of our situation is correct - we are upgrading our systems to Win7. We run the RAIDCFG32.exe using a scheduled task via a script. We use it to check for changes in disk serial number and/or disk status (security and reliability), and report them back to a centralised monitoring location.
We are using RAID 1 with RST. The model of the PC is a HP XW4400.
Things have moved on and we think we've resolved our primary issue - the user running RAIDCFG32.exe on Win7 appears to need higher privileges than on XP i.e. running as Admin on Win7 works, whereas a normal user does not. On XP we were able to run RAIDCFG32.exe as a normal user...
The version of RAIDCFG32.dxe we are using is 220.127.116.112. Is this the correct version for us to be using? Is there a newer version or an alternative tool we should use.
Thanks for your help.
Richard, the latest RST version that your chipset supports will be version 11.7 Intel® Download Center.
There is a Command Line Interface tool named Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Command Line Interface (RST CLI), but version 11.7 does not have one available.
The closest version will be 12.0 Intel® Download Center, but this version was designed to provide functionality for the following Storage Controllers:
• Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI/RAID Controller
• Intel(R) 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI/RAID Controller
• Intel(R) 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI/RAID Controller
• Intel(R) 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI/RAID Controller
• Intel(R) X79 Express Chipset
I'll have a look at RST 11.7 and RST CLI 12.0.
