    I'm not familiar with the Crucial/Micron Storage Executive program.

    You can see if the following helps:
    1. uninstall the current program
    2. download and install the version from Crucial storage-executive | United States (USD)

    You might need to contact Crucial tech support for help, Crucial contact us | United States (USD) using phone, email or online chat.

    Let us know the solution that they provide.

    **edit** I don't know if this makes a difference; in the TweakTown review, they used the iaStorA storage driver and you are using the storahci storage driver.

    I'll go contact their people. I just don't get why it was working on the inferior port ;) it doesn't like the Intel port I guess. I am on windows 10 pv so Maybie the ASrock driver works right with the program and the intel one doesn't... Or Something.

    It might be a win10 issue.

    Is there any way you can easily do a win7 or win8 o/s installation to see if it makes a difference?

    Did you see the EDIT that I added to my previous post about the storage driver version that you are using?

    I just did. I didn't know you could select the drivers? Where do I do that?

    The normal procedure is to select raid mode in the bios before you install windows.
    AHCI is normally the default storage driver option.

    I suggest that you wait until Monday to contact Crucial tech support.
    Maybe they already know about the win10 Storage Executive program problem.

    The following information will get you started if you want to read up on some possible solutions.

    You could reinstall win10 where you first enable raid mode in your bios.
    Before you do this you will need to search the web for detailed win10 tutorials or guides.

    I used the win7 registry hack to change the default AHCI mode to RAID mode, even though I do not have any raid arrays in my system.
    The win7 AHCI/Raid tweaks will NOT work with win8 or win10.

    From https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...=vs.85%29.aspx

    StorAHCI replaces MSAHCI
    Platforms
    • Clients – Windows 8
    • Servers – Windows Server 2012
    Description
    StorAHCI, a Storport miniport, supports serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) advanced host controller interface (AHCI) controllers in Windows, and replaces MSAHCI, an ATAport miniport.

    Manifestation
    There should be no change in functionality or performance; this driver supports all the same devices that MSAHCI supports.
    This change is transparent to the user.

    The following web searches should provide useful information:
    1. "windows 10 preview" how to enable raid mode after installation
    2. windows 10 tutorial OR guide

    From the Windows EightForums, the information in Convert AHCI mode to RAID mode without re-installing might apply to win10.



    Disclaimer: I've never used win8 or win10

    It's probably a Windows 10 compatibility issue. That would be a bit odd IMO, since I have had very good luck with almost every program and driver I've used with Win 10 TP. But that is most likely the cause.

    Since TweakTown was using the Intel SATA ports and the IRST driver when they used Storage Executive, it's not an issue with the Intel SATA ports.

    If your SATA mode for the Intel chipset was AHCI when you installed Windows, you can install the Intel IRST driver used for AHCI and RAID. That would be the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver and utility ver:13.1.0.1058 on your board's download page. The IRST version is the same for Win 7, 8, 8.1, and would work with Win 10 TP.

    Since you were using the storahci driver from Win 8.1 or 10 TP, your SATA mode for the Intel SATA chipset was set to AHCI, the default for your board. So no need to do a registry edit.

    ASRock > Z97 Extreme4

    I've used multiple version of the IRST driver with Win 10 TP, and they worked fine, at least any version compatible with Win 8.1.

    Regardless, some of the SSD utility programs can be a let down once you try them, so if it doesn't work you aren't missing much. They are hyped as much more than they actually are.
