Okay that is good that you are using AHCI mode already so there is no need to have the Intel RST program or drivers. Did you update all drivers other then the bios from you motherboard website I provided? Do not worry about the bios update. The general rule is not to update it unless you are experiencing issues or the update adds features you need.
Create a Restore Point and then do the following:
1. Check and uninstall Intel Rapid Storage Manager from Programs/Features
2. Go to Device Manager, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, then click uninstall all
Once removed reboot and it should stop reinstalling IRST.
