Hi,

I have an intermittent problem where AIDA64 locks up when 'Scanning RAID Devices' on my Asus Rampage IV Formula board. I do not have a RAID set-up configured. I have the following drives installed:

Disk Drive ATA INTEL SSDSC2CT18 SCSI Disk Device (167 GB)
Disk Drive ATA ST3750640AS SCSI Disk Device (750 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)

Both are using the following storage controller:

Storage Controller IntelĀ® C600 Series Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

The following software was installed when the drivers for the board were installed, but I have since removed it in case it was causing the problem, but the issue remains:

Intel Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise

Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks

If you use the latest WHQL Intel RST Enterprise driver with the latest AIDA64 beta release then it should fix the problem:

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Thanks.

Like I say, I uninstalled the RST Enterprise application, so I assume this would have removed any of the associated drivers, hopefully thereby eliminating another point of failure?

Either way, I am still get the same problem with the beta version.

Is there anything I can send you to help with troubleshooting?

Thanks

Removing the RST Enterprise application will not remove the drivers.

You can however disable RAID scanning if you go to AIDA64 installation folder, and create a new text file called AIDA64.INI, and copy-paste the following 3 lines into it:

[Generic]
LowLevelRAIDEnum=0
LowLevelRAIDSMART=0

Complete removing the driver also requires some registry work, as the driver installs a lowerfilter that is not removable via the limited inf uninstallation capabilities

We've fixed the BSoD issue on Intel RAID controllers. Please upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

http://www.aida64.co...45sng0t8xhwrzip

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let us know how it works ;)
