Isn’t Intel RST SATA for RAID only? Does this overwtite AHCI?[/QUOTE]
In the olden days, back under its old name, it was the software you used when you set up RAID, yes. Nowadays, it provides an AHCI driver (enables greater performance over Microsoft’s AHCI driver) in addition to providing the RAID drivers. Basically it’s the one-stop shop when you need anything more advanced than bog-standard IDE mode from your Intel SATA ports.
