    Problem with IRST with layest Windows10 64bit update

    DragoFire

      For some reason after last nights update, all 3 RAID1 arrays are coming up as incompatible during BIOS boot up and in Windows no IRST attached HDD displays.

       

      Now I've rolled back Windows, I've even tried the latest IRST drivers and also manufacture latest drives with no joy.

       

      I've even completely deleted drives in windows and rebooted to allow it to load new ones, all with the same results.

       

      IRST says when I try to open windows GUI that it's service hasn't started, and displays the warning window; An unknown error occurred while running this application. If the problem persists, please restart your computer or try reinstalling the application.

       

      Now I've done all that, and with no luck. I need to get these RAID1

      s detected as it has a lot of work data on them, yes I have them backed up, problem it this failure happened the day the lasted backup was due to be done.

       

      System is as follows:

      CPU: i7 X 980

      RAM: 24GB

      OS: Win10 x64 64-bit

      MB: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD9

      Graphics: ATI R9 X280

      HDD: WD, mix of Raptor and Blacks.

       

      I'm hoping someone has an answer

          Hello DragoFire:

           

          Thank you for contacting the Intel Communities.

           

          The tests performed were with new drives?

          What is the exact status of the RAID?

           

          You may also try this, access the RAID BIOS (Ctrl + I) and choose “Reset Disk to non-RAID” (for both drives if needed). When you do this you will get a message warning you about data loss, in most RAID types this will be true but there is no problem with RAID 1, since it is a mirror the data will remain.

           

          Now, in order to create the RAID 1 again without losing the data you will need to boot into Windows*, start Intel® Rapid Storage Technology, and create the RAID volume from the drive with existing data, as explained in the user guide (page 30). This option does not appear in the RAID BIOS, therefore creating the RAID volume there will delete the data.
