How to disable Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise


See also my previous post on How to disable Intel(R) Embedded Server RAID Technology II.

It seems that Embedded Server RAID Technology II, or some variant there of, re-branded as “Rapid Storage Technology enterpise” has made at least one small inovation. That is a menu option to change connect disks from “RAID” to “Non-RAID” node. 😉

Or at least this is the case on the Superimcro X9DRW-TF+ version 1.0b bios version. The procedure is much the same as with “Embedded Server RAID Technology II”.

  • Enter into the AHCI RAID option ROM and destroy or “Reset” any configured arrays.
  • Reboot
  • Enter into the BIOS setup and change the SATA controller mode to AHCI or IDE.
  • Save changes & Reboot

Note that in AHCI mode you still see an option ROM loading.
