I have an X61s running VIsta Ultimate. It has all the drivers and updates that are available from Lenovo except the Intel Matrix Storage Manager ...The machine works flawlessly right now.... is there a reason to install the Matric Storage Manager?
Can someone outline what the storage manager does and what (if any) benefit there is to install it? I have had some bad experiences with Lenovo system updates, so I'm just a bit gunshy about installing something as (apparently) basic to the machine as this is.
You are being prompted to update the driver for your SATA Hard Drive.
see http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ ... ldID=17882
Being your system works 'flawlessly' there is no reason to update the driver. On the other hand, the new driver may perform even better than the current. If you update and it doesn't perform as well, you should be able to roll-back to the current driver.
Lastly, you are considering changing a CRITICAL driver; the worse case senario is your system may blue screen and fail to boot (I've had it happen changing HDD drivers)!!
