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!

Change the bios back to AHCI. If you want to change the SATA mode you must first change it in the OS registry and then in the bios.

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.

Yes, you just need the registry key changed then reboot and make the change in the bios.
