Option ROM Information for Intel® RAID Controller Hub


Last Reviewed: 15-Mar-2016
Article ID: 000006106

The option ROM manages Serial ATA hard drives and RAID volumes that are attached to an Intel® RAID controller hub before the operating system loads.

The option ROM is integrated with the system BIOS on all motherboards with a supported Intel® chipset and Intel® RAID controller hub.

It is okay to upgrade to a newer version of Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST)—for example, v10.1—if you have an older version of the option ROM—for example, v9.6—installed. The option ROM version does not need to match the version of Intel RST.
