Have been having BSOD (0x7e and 0x4e) and Data lost issues after a failed Raid 0 & 1 Array (Intel Matrix Raid) on 2 seagate 500gig 7200.11 hdd volumes after installing the latest intel Matrix Storage Manager 188.8.131.523.
Suspecting faulty seagate hdd's i've decided to install 2 WD Caviar Black 1 Tb in a RAID 1 only configuration in my rig, only the suffer BSOD again after installing the latest intel matrix storage manager mentionned above plus the 2 seagate HDD didn't have any hardware faults using the seagate SMART diagnostics. Now suspecting faulty drivers i've decided to install the previous intel drivers 8.8.1009 and since then my rig works perfectly.
Is there anybody out there having these similar issues lately ?
