gladly assuming that Intel Devs are taking more time to look into my issue...
but may I have a short update on the status please?
From another thread, I understand that the driver Version 11.7 is compatible with RAID Controller ICH9M-E, but how do I need to proceed?
Thanks a lot,
Do a clean reinstall of Windows 10.
You are suffering from a well known bug, Windows tried to "migrate" the driver for the raid controller during the upgrade, failed, and now it's broken for good. The only known way to fix it, is to sidestep to a different driver version, as the artifacts created by the "migration" procedure affect only the specific driver versions which got migrated.
After a clean reinstall, you can use the same driver versions again.
Thanks mate, that matches with what I've found out by now, but only after weeks long research and uncountable hours spent.
What angers me is that nobody at Intel, be it in this forum or asked by support ticket, is willing and able to care and investigate or clarify this issue, and tells what needs to be done to fix it.
The answer is always: your configuration is not supported anymore. Roll back to Windows 7.
When in fact it's a sole failure of Intel's and Microsoft's poor quality control.
I will do clean install and kick in an old driver into the installation. Hope it will work then again.
Cheers & best regards
PS: if this is a well known error, it sure could be of help to others if you had a link to more information about it?
