I don't know what options the M58 BIOS offers as far as supporting both the built-in graphics as well as an expansion PCIe x16 graphics card at the same time, but normally the "AUTO" setting causes the machine to use an expansion graphics card if you have one installed, disabling the built-in graphics completely.
So you would use the one or more ports available on the graphics card to connect to one or more monitors. The graphics ports from the I/O panel of the motherboard are non-functional when you install a graphics card. That's the point.
Newer Lenovo desktop machines may support a "both + multi-monitor" BIOS option combining Intel drivers (for the built-in graphics) along with NVidia (or whatever) graphics driver. But you have to set the BIOS options accordingly in order to achieve that.
But again, normally if you have a high-powered PCIe x16 graphics card that you've installed you want to make use of it. Presumably it is superior to the built-in graphics capability, and typically also supports multiple monitors through multiple video connectors of its own. But with this M58 6303 (which is small to begin with and at least 10 years old in technology) even just the physical limits on the kind of graphics card you might be able to install, not to mention PSU limitations, well there's not a lot of options here.

Now, things are going crazy : I installed another driver from the same forum, v220.127.116.116 (https://www.win-raid.com/t2f23-Intel-RST-RSTe-Drivers-newest-v-WHQL-v-WHQL.html), which is supposed to be older than the one I had (even Windows said it when I replaced it). Both support ICH10.
Did you try the driver I linked to earlier, on the official Intel download site (not a 3rd party site)? According to the page, it is the latest version that supports this generation Chipset. I didn't run a SSD on that system, but as far as I could tell, the HDD was running in AHCI mode.

Oh ok, initially I thought I could plug the graphic card and then choose to plug the monitor to it or to the chipset. Anyways, the GC card in question (I put a link to it in a previous post) is so old that websites tell me the chipster is better. This PC is not used for games anyways so I'm fine without it, it was just to test it.
I tried to install your 18.104.22.1683 but right now I have the 22.214.171.1241 and it doesn't let me replace it with yours, saying that "the best driver for this device is already installed' . Yesterday I tried to remove the driver in device manager first (before installing another one) but if I do it doesn't let me install another one and I've got blue screen when rebooting.

Hello everybody, I've posted my problem (can't start the OS with AHCI enabled in BIOS) at
and was referred here. I tried everything suggested here but the problem still persists.
I changed iaStorV to "0"
I tried to install Setup RST.exe but failed as it reads "SetupRST.exe- Entry point not found."
I managed to install RST 126.96.36.1993 driver but still I can't find "Storahci" in my regedit. Please help me out.

Today I was digging in BIOS settings and found out that AHCI HDD was "Excluded from boot order". I've changed it and voila, it's booting now in AHCI mode but...
1. In my second PC in the tool bar tray I can see all HDDs and flash drives connected. In Lenovo I don't see the SSD.
2. Every time the PC is loaded I can see "Intel RST service is not running". I can start it manually and then it reads "Current status: Your system is functioning properly"
3. According to the advertisment the SSD speed should be 330mb/s but mine is 285. Is it not so much of a difference?
Do you think I can use my SSD now effectively?

Hi. Are you able to help this fellow M58 owner with the above specific questions? Thank you.
