************************************************************
* 4.  DETERMINING THE SYSTEM MODE
************************************************************

To use this Readme effectively, you will need to know what 
mode your system is in. The easiest way to determine the 
mode is to identify how the SATA controller is 
presented within the Device Manager. The following 
procedure will guide you through determining the mode.
1.  On the Start menu, select Control Panel.

In Microsoft Windows 7* or higher:
    
2.  Double-click 'System' from the small or large icon 
    view.

3.  Select 'Device Manager' in the left pane.

4.  In the Device Manager window, look for an entry named 
    Storage Controllers. If this entry is present, expand it
    and look for one of the controllers listed 
    in the Overview Section1. If the controller identified is 
    a RAID controller, then the system is in RAID mode.

    
5.  If none of the controllers above are shown, 
    then the system is not running in RAID mode and 
    you should continue with step 6 below.

6.  From the Device Manager, look for an entry named 
    'IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers'. If this entry is present, 
    expand it and look for one of the controllers listed 
    in the Overview Section1. If an AHCI controller is 
    identified, then the system is in AHCI mode.

    If none of the controllers above are shown, then 
    your system is not in AHCI mode. No other modes are  
    supported by Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology 
    and you should continue with step 7 below.

7.  Your system does not appear to be running in RAID or 
    AHCI mode. If you feel that your system is running in 
    RAID or AHCI mode and you do not see any of the 
    controllers listed above, you may choose to contact 
    your system manufacturer or place of purchase for 
    assistance.


************************************************************
* 5.  INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE
************************************************************

************************************************************
* 7.  ADVANCED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
************************************************************

7.1 Available Setup Flags:

    -?             The installer presents a dialog showing
                   all the supported setup flags (shown 
                   here) and their usage, then quits without
		   installing. 
    -A             Extracts driver and readme files (does 
		   not install driver) to <path> if -P is also 
                   supplied; otherwise, the files are
                   extracted to the default location.
    -B             The installer will automatically reboot without
		   prompting after the installation completes. This
		   is only applicable when used with the -s switch.
    -G <LCID>      Forces a particular language install 
                   (See section 3 for a table mapping 
                   <LCID> to language).
    -Nodrv         Does not install Intel(R) RST driver.
    -Noicc         Does not install the Intel(R) Control Center (Intel(R) CC).
    -NoIRSTGUI     Does not create a start menu shortcut for the

		   installation. Intel(R) CC is not removed if it is already 
		   installed.
    -Noservice     Does not install the Event Monitor Service. This means
		   that UI components also do not get installed.
    -Notray	   Prevents the monitor applet from launching on 
		   every reboot.
    -Overwrite     The installer will downgrade without interaction
		   from the user.
    -P <path>      Changes default directory location for application
		   files and supplies target path when combined with
		   -A flag.				
    -report <path> Changes the default log path.
    -S             Silent install (no user prompts or Intel RST user interface
		   display). If used in combination with -B, the installer 
		   will automatically reboot.
    -ver           Displays driver versions.		
     

Notes:  Flags and their parameters are not case-sensitive.
        Flags may be supplied in any order, with the 
        exception of the -S and -G, which must be 
        supplied last. When using the -A flag, a target 
        path may be specified via the -P flag, 
        -G, -S, and -N flags are ignored. When using the 
        -P flags, there should be space 
        between the flag and the argument.

7.2 Use one of the following command examples to extract the 
    driver files from the different package types:

      c:\iata_cd.exe -a -a -p c:\<path>
      c:\iata_enu.exe -a -a -p c:\<path>
      c:\setup.exe -a -p c:\<path>

    When the command is run, the installer executes and a prompt will
    display to confirm that files were extracted successfully; This 
    will not install the driver; it will only extract the driver files 
    to <path>. After the extraction is completed, the driver 
    files can be found in <path>\Driver.

************************************************************
* 9.  UNINSTALLING THE SOFTWARE
************************************************************

9a. UNINSTALLATION OF NON-DRIVER COMPONENTS
The removal of this software from the system will render any 
SATA disks inaccessible by the operating system;
therefore, the uninstallation procedure will only uninstall 
non-critical components of this software (user interface, 
start menu links, etc.). To remove critical components, see
section 9b. 

Use the following procedure to uninstall the software:

1.  On the Start menu, select Control Panel.
2.  Click 'Programs and Features' for Windows 7* (or higher). 
Locate and select Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology.
3.  Right-click the application name, and then click 'Uninstall'.
4.  The uninstall program will start. Click through the
options for the uninstallation.


9b. UNINSTALLATION OF DRIVER COMPONENTS
The removal of this software from the system will render any 
SATA disks inaccessible by the operating system.
Back up any important data before completing these steps.
 
1) If the system is in RAID mode, delete any RAID volumes
using the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM
user interface.
2) Reboot the system.
 
Note: If you experience any difficulties making these 
changes to the system BIOS, please contact the motherboard
manufacturer or your place of purchase for assistance.
 
************************************************************
* 10.  ENTERING THE OPTION ROM USER INTERFACE
************************************************************

Use the following steps to enter the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology 
Manager - option ROM user interface:

1. Boot the system.
2. Press CTRL+I when the 
   'Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM vX.y.w.zzzz' 
   banner screen appears.

************************************************************
* 11.  OPTION ROM RAID VOLUME MANAGEMENT
************************************************************
The Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM provides 
pre-OS RAID volume management which enables the following:

1. Create RAID Volume
   Use this option to create one or two RAID volumes.

2. Delete RAID Volume
   Use this option to delete a RAID volume.

3. Reset Disks to Non-RAID 
   Use this option to reset a RAID configuration to a 
   non-RAID configuration.

4. Recovery Volume Options
   If a recovery volume is present, use this option to 
        a. Disable Continuous Update
        b. Enable Only Recovery Disk
        c. Enable Only Master Disk


************************************************************
* 12.  OPTIONS TO RESET THE RAID VOLUME IN OPTION ROM
************************************************************
Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM user interface provides 
two methods for resetting the RAID volume:
1. Delete RAID Volume
2. Reset Disks to Non-RAID
   Differences between the options are noted below. Users are 
   advised to select the option based on the situation.

12.1 Delete RAID Volume

     When a RAID volume is deleted, RAID metadata on the 
     participating disks is erased and sector zero is cleared;
     as a result, the partition table and file system related data 
     are reset. Windows installer will not see any invalid data 
     at the time of OS installation. This is the recommended 
     method for reconfiguring the RAID volume and installing OS 
     on it.

12.2 Reset Disks to Non-RAID

     This option is used to reset the metadata on the disk which 
     participates in more than one RAID volume in single 
     operation. It should be used if 'Delete RAID Volume' option 
     fails for any reason and to reset a disk that has been 
     marked as Spare and offline member. When a disk in the RAID 
     volume is reset to non-RAID, RAID metadata is erased. 
     However, partition table and file system related data still 
     exists, which may be invalid. This might cause Windows 
     installer to misinterpret the information available on the 
     'reset disk' at the time of installation. This could result 
     in unexpected behavior in OS installation.


************************************************************
* 13.  VERIFYING THE VERSION OF THE OPTION ROM SOFTWARE
************************************************************

1. Use the following steps to identify the version number of
   the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM:

   - Enter the Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM user 
     interface using the steps detailed in section 10.
   - The software version will be displayed in the user 
     interface banner:
     'Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology - option ROM X.y.w.zzzz'

     X.y.w.zzzz is the version number of the option ROM 
     installed on your system.
     X.y.w - Product release number
     X     - Major number
     y     - Minor number
     w     - Hotfix number
     zzzz  - Build number
