Thank you for contacting the Intel® Communities.
The Intel(R) Rapid Storage Software is supported for Windows 10*, Intel Matrix Storage Console 8.9 not so much.
You can instal Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology and use it for your RAID configurations.
Will installing IRST remove "Matrix Console Manager"?
Should I even install IRST in the first place?
Can I somehow fully uninstall Matrix Console Manager first?
This would depend on the system configuration that you have, regarding compatibility.
Please access the link below and create the report of your system, with this I will be able to get the different components in your computer to check the compatibility on this.
Did but do not see the results anywhere. It says to refer back to browser but do not see it. Did the report get to you? I have an ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 mobo.
Thinking of re-setting up my system as I do not think I even need to install you RAID software as my system seemed fine from the get go and I think my board has RAID technology built in.
Re-checking with the manulal seems ti indicate this I believe as it says that my mobo comes with the intel Southbridge controller that supports RAID. Am I correct on the meaning of this? If so should I re-set up my system as not to install IRST?
In order to provide the information or report to me, please do the following:
1. Download the file from Intel® System Identification Utility
2. Run the wizard
3. Once it asks you to go back to the browser, click in the save button, please refer to the screenshot below.
4. By doing this you will get a .htm file, please attach that file to your answer.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Hi EstebanC_Intel - I am experiencing the exact same issue with my Matrix Console. Very concerned that my RAID is not working. All was fine while on Windows 7; now seeing the same error as reported above by Jimster2016 after upgrading to Windows 10. Have been on Windows 10 for a few months and today is the first time I am experiencing this issue. Appreciate your help.
Thank you in advance.
As long as you don't have more than one RAID controller (depending on the SATA ports available and the controllers present there) you should not have issues while installing the latest Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology.
Please make sure
Please do perform a backup in your system before doing this, just to avoid loosing any data and then provide me with your outcome on this.
