After some drivers update (bios update, w10 1809 update and intel sata/pcie rst premium controller new drivers) No way to make Crucial storage executive 3.60 work again on my M.2 MX500 SSD
Solution : Im in raid mode setting in my bios and i have to change it for AHCI (who was supposed to worked) and reinstall w10 cause w10 crash when i do it
Some software or disk are not reconize or work on new RST drivers controler setup (after a w10 update or new drivers update). Also i saw a couple of mobo failling whit RST or freeze/crash (im a tech IT) So if you dont need Raid u better put it AHCI ...
Btw was working whit 3.60 before my bios and drivers update.
But ive found this way to switch Raid controler to AHCI whit no w10 reinstall !
Now 3.60 work again
Plz Crucial update your 3.60. for raid controler!
p.s. Install JAVA 8 ver. 192 beta... can be found on java website

Glad you got it sorted but whatever the problem is - it's not as simple as just being raid. It works fine for me with Intel raid enabled.

Glad for you too but wait next update and see !. Also it depend of a lot of thing. mobo, disk drives, drivers, OS etc.. Windows have more than 16 millions possibilities ! BTW setting your rig to raid controler is completly useless if u dont use it....

The Intel RST driver set for RAID is fine to use, as AHCI is simply a subset of it. TRIM will work fine in any drive with a bios set to RAID as long as the drive is not in the array or is in an array supported by the newer Intel drivers.
So, short answer -- no problem (and no advantage/disadvantage) at all, and you can leave it as it is. If your rig and drivers is comp. whit it !

That's not strictly speaking true. I had an old system that only offered IDE and RAID. Since RAID includes NCQ (which is the feature of AHCI that SSD's want for speed), RAID is much better on than off for that system - even when not using it.
On my current system - I am using raid anyway though.

Some of us still have some old systems Recently I set up 9 years old notebook with Ubuntu and donated it to a person in need. Also I have a 11 years old notebook that works like a charm with some older Crucial SSD model.
