Updating RAID Driver on server

Hello everyone,

Our Windows 2008 server started acting up today and the error is pointing to the iastore.sys file.

This server currently has a RAID configuration built in (Intel ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller)

It has six harddrives in total (First 2 in Raid 1 (OS) and the next 4 in Raid 5 (Data Storage etc))

If I download and update the driver ... will I have to re - raid the drives and loose the information?

I doubt that's the case but it's my only worry before going ahead and updating the driver and then further testing the issue.

Thanks

Read what the instructions but usually no you don't have to reconfigure anything at all you should be able update without any configurations being lost
