I am experiencing the exact same scenario as the OP, except for my chip set being ICH10r with a quad core i7 CPU.
I am not certain whether my RAID1 is still working, or not, or whether the problem is an incompatibility between the driver and the console app. Very disconcerting...
The initial boot page now reports that my raid 1 system is normal so I assume that the verification process has run. I was prompted to action disk repair at win 10 boot, which took a very long time so hopefully the protection is in place, but due to the lack of the console availability I lack information and confidence.
I am in the same boat. I wasn't prompted to run a disk repair, however. BIOS reports two physical drives as "member drives" of a RAID array on boot. Device manager shows an Intel driver (rev. 13.2) under Storage Controllers and declares the device to be working properly but who knows...
The compatible driver with Microsoft® Windows 10 is version 14.5.
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver
It is necessary to install the F6 driver while you are reinstalling the operating system from scratch.
Now, the older RAID software Intel® Matrix Storage Manager is not supported by Microsoft® Windows 10.
If you are using a third party motherboard, it is better to use the motherboard manufacturer drivers.

It was Windows 10 that installed the version 13.3 driver during the upgrade - the log reveals that Windows "migrated" my existing older driver. I can only assume that the latest driver was not installed because my elderly motherboard with its X58 Express chipset is not supported by the version 14.5 driver. Any way to get the console application working again?
Sorry, should have said version 13.2 Storage Driver.
Intel® Matrix Storage Manager is an older program; Intel stopped supporting it sometime ago.
Hi! Quite a same issue here: ICH10R chipset, GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard, SATA AHCI RAID 1 enabled, "upgraded" workstation from Win7 Pro x64 to Win10 Pro x64 early this month and now, a lot of BSOD immediately at boot time, with one of these three errors: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, INTERRUPT_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, or ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY (iaStorA.sys). I'm using the 220.127.116.111 RST driver.
FYI, with the latest 18.104.22.1689 RST driver, I cannot boot anymore: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE, full stop. As a temporary fix, I did a rollback to a system restore point with 22.214.171.1241 still installed, helped by a Win10 installation disc.
No problem at all before Win10 upgrade, so I'll probably jump back to Win7.
So what is the fix for this issue? When I installed the new driver I also received INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. I need to verify my raid so any help would be appreciated.

Intel stopped supporting “Intel® Matrix Storage Manager” on 2009. The engineers developed new technology for RAID configurations called “Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST)”.
-Intel® Matrix Storage Manager Version 126.96.36.1993 (latest driver)
This driver works on Windows 7*, Windows 7, 32-bit*, Windows 7, 64-bit*, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition*, Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition*, Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition*, Windows Server 2003*, Windows Server 2008*, Windows Vista 32*, Windows Vista 64*, Windows Vista*, Windows XP Home Edition*, Windows XP Media Center Edition*, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition*, Windows XP Professional*

So what are you saying? Why doesn't Intel fix the 184.108.40.2069 version driver so it does not leave us people that buy your products with an INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE when we update to the latest RST driver? Its pretty sad when you have to follow the procedure below to get a driver that is suppose to support my chipset to work. I also used the v220.127.116.111 RST driver to get my system working properly again and I now can manage my RAID with the manager software.
I am sorry for the inconvenience but Microsoft® Windows 10 requires a newer RAID controller (software and hardware). Your workaround is a very good option. The ARC-1200 (2-Port PCIe x1 to SATA RAID Adapter) is compatible with Microsoft® Windows 10.
I'm experiencing the same issue with DQ45CB mainboard. Matrix Storage Console not seeing the driver. So I upgraded to the latest driver... Sadly I didn't see this tread before. Now my machine doesn't boot any more with RAID. It hanged at the very first screen of Win10. The only solution I found was switching to IDE instead of RAID in BIOS. Now it's working without mirroring only in IDE mode. When I switch RAID (or AHCI) back I get the error inaccessible_boot_device. Changing driver to older versions does not help. How can I get back my mirror working? When I switch to RAID again at the starting screeen I see that RAID is at NORMAL state. Why doesn't it see the changes? (The system is working with only one drive for a day so the disks cannot be the same). Will it synchronise properly when I get the system working (if I ever will)?
Please confirm whether the download file f6flpy-x64.zip contains the file(s) that must be installed whilst "reinstalling the operating system from scratch".
I find that the word "optional" on the downloads page appears to conflict with your post of 05-Aug-2015 15:57 above.
Are the files in f6flpy-x64.zip definitely compatible with my system?:
Dell 9200; RAID 1 (Intel(R) 82801HR/HH/HO SATA RAID Controller); Intel P965 Express processor; Chipset ICH8r
I intend to install Windows 10 64 bit.
