    This is not easy to understand. Please explain, what you mean, and give some short informations about your system (chipset, OS etc.)

    You googled for photos, I googled further for specs:
    It seems to be an ICH9m Southbridge.

    I mean to remember that ICHxR have RAID and ICHx (without R) doesn't have RAID support.

    Hi Fernando
    Wanted ask ; what is the benefit upgrading Intel RAID Option ROM ?
    When I had Vaio model with RAID and I have installed 4 SSDs I couldn't create RAID 0 from 4 drives it wont let me select all four only 2 .. Do you know why?
    Will upgrading Option ROM solve this ? I will be able to

    Why do you use actual drivers and flash a new firmware? It has always the same reason: The users want all known issues of the previous versions to be solved, furthermore the newest technical features and the best possible performance.
    Maybe your Vaio had only 2 Intel SATA ports.
    Maybe it will, but I am not sure about that, because it depends on the hardware of your system as well.

    Fernando no ..
    This Vaio AW has 4 SATA ports ..
    I have removed crappy DVD and installed optibat .. and + one bay ssd and second bay is dual SATA .. so 4 altogether .. as u can see above picture .. from 3 years back
    But I cannot make RAID from 4 drives only from two drives each .. so dual RAID 0

    Hi noo ..
    That picture is 3 years old ..
    I had sony vaio with RAID support but I sold it .. I mentioned it earlier before ..
    NOW I was trying to find out if SONY didtn disabled it on others Vaio AW models .. OR it is just simply not there .. you know there are probably 15 Vaio AW models and only two or three of them supports RAID and motherboard is TOTALLY COMPLETELY identical ..

    If you never have updated your storage driver, you will not get a performance boost by updating the related ROM module. On the other hand you will get the best results by using a RAID driver and ROM module of the same version line (e.g. Intel RST v11.5.x.xxxx).

    The latest stable version is 10.8.0.1003 (17 October 2011). The latest testing version is 11.5.0.1347 Alpha [12] (01 August 2012). Note: these versions do not support ICH8 controllers. The 11.5.0.1347 is the release that allows TRIM commands to be read by the RAID controller. You can see the latest Beta drivers and ROM's at Station Drivers dot com. The Intel RAID ROM is the firmware in the motherboard BIOS that is used to create the RAID array.
