    Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512 GB DRIVERS ??


    Samsung Magician 5.0 claims System NOT Compatible. Drivers need update. Went to URL they said to go, tried several drivers, but almost all are for RAID !!

    Click on the link for the RAID driver. Then select either the f6flpy-x64.zip or f6flpy-x86.zip file (64-bit or 32-bit). In device manager, manually upgrade the device driver for your SATA AHCI disk controller and point it to the folder holding the files extracted from the zip file downloaded. They also contain the Intel AHCI (non-raid) controller drivers.

    You can install Intel RST drivers on a non-RAID system, sometimes.

    It seems unlikely that they would be necessary. If you are running an Insider preview version of Windows 10, I wonder if it's a compatibility issue with the OS rather than the HD drivers.

    The standard AHCI drive controller driver installed by Microsoft needs to be updated with the Intel specific AHCI controller driver.

    Maybe so, but Win 10 15058 doesn't seem to like 15.2.0.1020 (the latest at the Intel download site). The same seemed to be true with the earlier 15XXX previews. Tried the installer package; incompatible. Tried the manual install that you recommend, and got a "best drivers already installed" message.

    Does the fact that I have the Intel NVME Miniport drivers installed affect your advice?

    My WIN 10 Insider 15058 accepted the 15.2.0.1020 Driver after several attempts. Much, much faster now !!

    I think my SanDisk SSD performs much faster on the Intel AHCI drivers as well. Hmmm..... looks like I need to upgrade to 15.2.0.1020, my driver is at 14.10.0.1016!

    Did you do anything special to get the driver to install?

    I don't expect trying the same thing repeatedly to work, but I can't swear that it never does.

    So this is unusual. This is my disk controller:

    Thinking my driver was out of date, I downloaded the 15.2.0.1020 file from Intel. I tried to update driver and just pointed it to the folder I had extracted the files to. I got a message back the best driver for my device was already installed. OK, selected the method to pick the driver from a list and pointed that to the .inf file in the extracted folder. Selected the driver for my SATA controller, restarted computer. And...to my surprise the driver version went DOWN to 14.8.0.1042!

    So, then I selected the disk controller again in device manager and this time picked the upgrade automatically option. It pulled a driver from online, restarted, and now back at 14.10.0.1016. So I guess there is no 15.2.0.1020 driver for my SATA controller.

    Ah... I just saw this on Intel's webpage:
    For Intel Platforms not supported above, visit the RAID version 14.8.0
