    Which AHCI driver for SSD?

    Electrovellum

      Hi Guys, I have a Windows 7 PC with a Gigabyte EP45-DS3 motherboard, up to date BIOS and Intel P45 chipset ICH10R. Just installed a Samsung SSD 850 EVO to speed up the system disc. All installed ok, but working with frequent blue screen crashes. SSD is not yet running as AHCI because when I set AHCI in the BIOS, it warns that the Intel SATA AHCI BIOS is iSrc 1.07 and supports HDD & CD-ROM only - then it crashes!

       

      I assume I need an uptodate AHCI driver, but which one. I think I need RST_11.6.0.1030_RAID_AHCI_driver_GUI_CLI_2012.10.11 but would like confirmation. I do not use RAID and the PC is a simple workstation, not a server.

       

      I hope this makes sense.
