I uploaded Windows 8 on my desktop computer. At the time when loading my OS, the SATA Mode was on AHCI. I then proceeded to update the latest Bios and downloaded Intel's RST drivers. I restarted my computer and changed SATA Mode to RAID and when I restart again, the computer posts a message, "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.." Please help me!

First, why do you need to change from AHCI to RAID? If you have a good reason then:
Enable the driver you want to use before changing the SATA mode setting in the BIOS -- for Intel the driver name is usually iaStorV or iaStorSV, set its value to 0
Either delete the entire StartOverride key (or change the the value to 0) under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\(DriverNameHere)
- Reboot to BIOS setup
- Enable AHCI or RAID mode as desired
Another simple method is to just modify the Microsoft guide approach HERE to reset to RAID from AHCI.
