T410 System Update 4 - Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver "Package did not install" Error

Question: T410 System Update 4 - Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver "Package did not install" Error

I've not had a problem with system Update 4 until today. I went out to check for any updates and there was only one (Optional) listed so I went ahead and tried to install it. It is Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver for Windows 64bit. The installed version is 9.5.7.1002 and the version trying to be installed is 9.6.0.1014. The progress bar indicated it downloaded and tried to install, but ended with the error, "1 Package did not install." Not a lot of help in that statement!?! Has anyone had a problem like this before? Any idea how to "fix" it so I can install this update? I even tried once with MS Security Essentials, Windows Firewall and UAC turned off with no difference. System details are in my sig, below. Thanks for any help,

Preferred Solution: T410 System Update 4 - Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver "Package did not install" Error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: T410 System Update 4 - Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver "Package did not install" Error

The installer in the package is missing or is bad. If you really want to install it then you'll have to download it manually from Lenovo site, expand it, then install the driver via Control Panel -> Device Manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller -> Intel blahblah -> update driver. Nap.

HI there!I got a T430s with the nvidia nvs 5400m and when i try to update drivers etc via the lenovo system update I got a message that I should update the Intel rapid storage driver to 11.2.0.1006, and that isn't even the latest version, but anyway I mark the update and let it install and then reboot. But when I search for updates I have to update the same driver to the same version I just installed. I have tried to remove the driver via device manager, but without results. Any idea?

Answer:Can't install Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver

Hi Jakobsjoqvist,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m really sorry to hear that you had trouble installing Intel Rapid Storage AHCI driver in your Lenovo Thinkpad T430s.
 
I would suggest you to try uninstalling the driver and run the Intel Driver update utility which will auto-detect the missing drivers and will install the latest version for you.
 
Hope this helps!

Hello,I am running W7 64bit with an SSD. I did all the updates but the updates of the Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver for Windows 64bit and Lenovo AutoLock fail. The error message is:"The drive or UNC share you selected does not exist or is not accessible. Please select another."There is nothing to select and I don't have an idea what this message means. I searched already for this error message but I couldn?t find something. I am using the ThinkVantage System Update and I tried already the manual update. The manual update produces the same error message. I tried also to install one patch after the other. The installation of the Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver simply says that it cannot be installed, no further reason, no possibility for a manual installation. The installation of the AutoLock patch produces the above error message.Please could someone help me?

Answer:T520 - Update fails for Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver and Lenovo AutoLock

Simlar problem here on a T510 with SSD and German Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit. System Update lists Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver 10.6.0.1002 as optional update but repeated installation attempts fails without explanation. Status simply says "Not installed". Where did you find the errror message? At the same time I tried to update the AHCI driver with System Update, I also tried to update the "ThinkPad Video Features(NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M and NVIDIA NVS 3100M) for Windows 7 64bit" to version 8.17.12.6824. That installation failed as well without an explanation. Now, the new version is not listed anymore in System Update. Version 8.17.12.6721 had been installed in August.

I just tried to install this update and for the first time ever my Windows 7 (64) setup wouldn't boot and I had to repair to a restore point.Tried many times and it is this driver is teh culprit for locking up the system.I would recommend anybody NOT to install this, at least not on a Thinkpad X1 where I got this problem.I couldn't contact Lenovo on this for further comment (how can I report a driver issue? Anybody knows??), so I don't know if this is a generalized issue, but if you notice updating to this driver breaks your setup, please report it or post here to draw attention to the issue.

Answer:Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver 7/8(64) version 12.8.0.1016 breaks Windows 7 on X1

On my x230 I have problems with this driver too.No boot problems though, but Microsoft Office suddenly tells me to activate, which it already has been.Besides, when installed the previous driver turns up as an update. If this is installed then, Office works again, but the 12.8.1016 driver turns up as an update and the whole thing repeats. I am keeping the previous driver for now.

The Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver version 12.8.0.1015 prevents Windows 7 x64 from booting.  This is a bad version for at least the W530. Installed the update using Lenovo System Update.  Rebooted the machine.  Windows would not boot.  Used Windows System Restore to roll back.  Tried again to install and same issue.  Used Windows System Restore to roll back.  FYI

Answer:W530 - Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver version 12.8.0.1015 prevents Windows 7 x64 from booting

This driver has a known problem if you are using 3rd-party software like Virtual Clone Drive or MagicDisc.  I know that Intel is working on a fix, but I don't have a release date yet.  Sorry for this trouble.

Hi everybody, I have serious Problems with my 42435gg Any time I install the Intel Storage AHCI Driver (I've tried plenty of different versions) which is suggested by System Update I experience a horrible Sound stutter and slow Graphic performance in Windows 7 64-Bit.The funny thing in this case: If the external e-sata port is connected the problems do not occur. If the port is unused again, the stutter begins immediately. The only thing I can do is using the Windows internal Storage Driver with which I am not able to use my DVD recorder for example. The device was sent to lenovo for hardware testing with no result. It was sent back without any repairing. Anybody experience on this? Kind regards,Daniel 

Answer:T520 - 42435gg / Sound stutter and slow Graphic performance with Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver

Did you try the 11.5 RST beta? Load up DPClat and see if DPC conditions are favorable.What are you using to check graphics performance?

Hi, I've got Lenovo G580 running Win7 64-bit and I have noticed strange issue. When I disconnect the power supply, i.e. laptop runs on battery, then after few seconds Intel Rapid Storage utility states "disc on port 4: removed" and the DVD-Ram gets disconnected. It is not recognizable until I reconnect the power supply or open the DVD-Ram. My question is if this is normal state or something's wrong. Any idea? Thanks for any suggestion ...

How do I actually update the driver for this? I have win 8.1 and task manager says IAStorSataSvc (32 bit) (intel rapid storage technology) is using 277.8 MB of memory (it was over 1,000 last night) and .4% of the CPU.  My version is 11.50.1207 and forums indicate this version eats a lot of memory and the driver should be updated.  How do I do that?  There are two versions that can be downloaded,  f6flpy-x86.zip - for 32-bit versions of the operating system and f6flpy-x64.zip - for 64-bit versions of the operating system.  Win 8.1 is 64 bit and the IRST says it is 32 bit, so which one do I use?  Once I have the right one dowloaded, it is a zip folder with 6 files.  How do i update the driver, double click on one of the .sys files, the largest one (there are two, one smaller than the other)?

One day I decided to check out this utility called Slimdriver that scans your PC to make sure it has up to date drivers. It offered to download and install 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' driver which I have never been offered by Windows update. Here is what is says about this driver,

"Intel« Rapid Storage Technology offers greater levels of performance, responsiveness, and expandability than ever before. Whether you are using one or multiple serial ATA (SATA) or PCIe drives, you can take advantage of enhanced performance and lower power consumption from the latest storage technologies. Additionally, you can rest easy knowing you have added protection against data loss in the event of a hard drive failure."

I've never used this driver in the past and it has a long startup delay so am wondering if it is good to have or not really necessary.
 

Answer:Do you install 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' driver?

I never install that. It creates another System Tray icon and doesn't appear to do anything useful. Would love to see if it actually helped with non-RAID systems.

Delete it from your hard deive. It is a hold over from Windoes 2000/XP days, which Windows did not install Software RAID drivers.

No need for that piece of software, since XP SP3 onwards has had the RAID software built into the OS.

The Lenovo driver list for the Yoga 2 11 includes Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) Driver for 64-bit Windows. However, attempting to install this results in the message, "No Appropriate Driver to be Installed". Likewise, attempting to install the Rapid Storage Technology driver from Intel's site results in the error, "The platform is not supported." Windows Device Manager shows WDC WD5000M22K-24Z1LT0-SSHD-16GB for the disk drive name, so it appears that the drive should support the RAID configuration for SSD caching. This is consistent with the specs for the laptop. Is it normal for the drivers to not install? It seems odd, given the placement on Lenovo's driver list. I'd like to set the Acceleration Mode to Maximized as described in Intel's User Guide.

Hello,
i own a vostro 3560 Notebook, i7, 8GB, 32GB msata and i replaced the HD by a Samsung 850 Pro SSD / 256Gb. Both ssds have been formated - i did not want to use the Intel rapid storage / start technology. The problem now is the following:
When i install Win 7 / 64 bit, this  only works in the "Intel rapid storage" mode (bios-option). If i try it with ata or ahci, the instalation hangs up after the first reboot at that point, the four windows- colours come together. There appears no bluescreen - the system only stopps.
I tried to renew the bios or changed it to version 13 and then back to V17 - but no sucess.
After i installed win 7 in this mode, I tried the regestry trick with the 0 instead of the 3 to load the ahci driver. I renewed the ahci-Driver manualy , and after that, i played with the ata driver in the same way. There always is the same result: the system freezes while booting when the colours come together. Now with  a blue-screen ;-).
The system only works, when in bios the irs-Option (instead ahci) is set.

Any ideas ... and sorry for my english ;-)

Regards
Joachim

I have two Dell XPS 8700 desktops. They are both about a year old. A few days ago, I installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update on both of them. That seemed to go OK. I used both pcs for a little while after the update finished. When I shut the first machine down, there was already an update. I chose Update and shut down. The next day I was on the other pc and after I used it for a few hours, suddenly a program wouldn't open. I finally restarted and as I might have expected, there was an update being installed. (I've had that same senario happen other times so I wan't surprised, ie, things quite working normally and then you find Microsoft has pushed out an update that requires a reboot but doesn't tell you.) But then the trouble began. The update took awhile and then the login screen came up, but every time I tried to enter my password, the screen would freeze and it would restart. After about 5 repeats of this, I got a black screen that said Starting Automatic Recovery and then it went to a pale blue screen that said that WRkrn.sys was corrupt or missing and I needed a disk or a system administrator. I couldn't remember if I had created a recovery disk or where I had put it. I ran to the other computer to create one, but when I started it up, the exact same thing happened. I called Microsoft and they wanted me to start them up in Safe mode, but I couldn't. So then they had me create an ISO image. I am sure it was of the latest build. I tried to repa... Read more

Answer:Intel - Storage Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller Windows update

Hi smalis,Your image shows two Microsoft updates:1) MS Security Essentials virus definition update. (this should automatically update in the background)2) Intel Storage Sata Controller.Neither update will "format your computer" but my recommendation is NOT to download (#2) Intel Sata Controller from the Microsoft Update site. This type of driver from a stability and reliability standpoint is best obtained from the manufacturer of your motherboard or the manufacturer of your computer system (Dell, HP, etc) if it is OEM.

My laptop is an Asus Zenbook UX32A with an Intel? HM76 Express Chipset and 4GB of RAM. It has a 465GB HDD, and 22GB SSD. It supports Intel Rapid START Technology and Intel Rapid STORAGE Technology as Asus offer out of date Windows 7 x64 drivers for those technologies - I have called them about this and they told me they will not support clean installs, and no Windows 8 recovery media is available but I want a clean install anyway. Some months ago I did a clean install of Windows 7 and could never get these technologies to work and I am now experiencing the same problem on my clean Windows 8.1 install. Windows 8.1 is installed on a 100GB GPT partition of the HDD.

The guides I have been using:

The Intel Rapid Start guide instructs I first make sure Intel Smart Response Technology installed, and the guide for that wants me to enable RAID in the BIOS. There is no RAID option in the BIOS, only IDE and AHCI, the latter of which I have selected. I continue anyway and run the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RAID) setup - I have tried various versions from the ASUS site and the Intel site including an Intel NUC AHCI version. A few minutes after restarting the Intel Rapid Storage Technology manager appears in the system tray, and it opens up fine but there is never an accelerate option like in the guide, instead I see this:

Hi all, I've had an issue for some time with my Intel 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. I'm running Win10 Pro 64 and updated earlier this year from Win7 Pro 64. I use Driver Genius to scan my drivers for updates and I got a message back in May to update to Ver. 14.8.9.1053 dated 4/21/16, but it failed to load quoting error code 1603. I currently have Ver. 14.8.7.1051 from 03/0//2016.

From time to time I've retried with no success and going to the Intel site is no help as it lists a Ver. 8.5 (driver ver. 14.5.0.1081 from 6/03/15) which sounds like it hasn't been updated for a while.

Anyone else run into this or can suggest a solution? Thanks.

Hi,

So over the past few weeks my laptop will freeze before sending me to a blue screen of death with the following message:

KERNEL_DATA_IMAGE_ERROR

It restarts itself and then loads up acts as if nothing has happened.

Looking at the 'Problem details' in the 'Action log' it says the issue is the 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver', and windows tells me there is a solution, but every time I try and look for one its stubborn and tells me it can't download it.

Here are the problem details:

Now I've tried updating the driver software, but Windows tells me I have the best one. Also I ran a memory diagnostic check, but that came back negative. And the crashes still keep happening. Sometimes when I'm watching a video online, sometimes when I have screen saver on.

If anyone could help me at all I would highly appreciate it. I don't know all the computer mumbo-jumbo, so if someone can explain it to me like they would a 10-year old* that'd be amazing.

Hi all, I've had an issue for some time with my Intel 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller. I'm running Win10 Pro 64 and updated earlier this year from Win7 Pro 64. I use Driver Genius to scan my drivers for updates and I got a message back in May to update to Ver. 14.8.9.1053 dated 4/21/16, but it failed to load quoting error code 1603. I currently have Ver. 14.8.7.1051 from 03/0//2016.

From time to time I've retried with no success and going to the Intel site is no help as it lists a Ver. 8.5 (driver ver. 14.5.0.1081 from 6/03/15) which sounds like it hasn't been updated for a while.

Anyone else run into this or can suggest a solution? Thanks.

My Windows 8-installed G500s has a problem with the Intel Rapid Starage driver - specifically, I am not sure which is the most up-to-date and accurate one to install on my system. If I install the version listed as most recent on the G500s driver list, v12.0.0.1083, then my computer becomes unable to enter sleep mode, instead hanging forever with the blue power LED on the front remaining solid, indicating that it is still active. However, the most recent driver found on Intel's own website, 12.9.0.1001, causes the computer to hang and throw up blue screen errors after a couple of days have passed. Can anyone help me find the correct drivers and fix this issue once and for all? I can provide any information you believe would be helpful for troubleshooting. On a related note, I am running Windows 8.0; would upgrading to 8.1 help at all? Regards,Mohawk

My desktop machine is built on Gigabyte GA-Z87-UD3H and Gigabyte provides the latest driver for Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST), which I installed after installing the OS. Same goes for my Lenovo Thinkpad-T420. And for both machine, checking the controller device under the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers section in Device Manager I see the driver has been updated to the latest version.

- I set the SATA controller to AHCI from BIOS
- On the desktop machine I have one WD 2TB BLACK & one WD 3TB Green
- I don’t use RAID, & no chance of using in near future, but according to Intel IRST improves performance in single disk scenario too.

Now I have the following questions –
1. What is the actual purpose of IRST (pre-OS install) driver that doesn’t get served with a post-OS driver that I installed? There must be some difference, otherwise there wouldn’t be a pre-OS version of the driver. Right?
2. In the pre-OS procedure (loading the drivers at OS-installation time) after successfully completing the OS installation, do I need that post-OS driver?

Answer:Intel Rapid Storage Technology (pre-OS) driver installation

The pre operating system drivers exist to allow installation of operating systems that do not already contain the appropriate drivers. Windows 7 contains the necessary drivers, therefore no additional pre OS drivers are required.

Adding the IRST after OS installation would essentially update those drivers to the latest (not always necessary).

If you manage to install the latest during the OS installation, then you would not need to update them later.

However, you would need to install the IRST software to get the configuration application.

Nothing is updated at the BIOS level when using pre OS drivers.

I would install both Windows 7 and 8 without messing with any pre OS drivers.

Answer:X220: Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver

Hello,
 
I don't know what that particular fix is for certain, but when I have seen, well, vague descriptions like that, I usually assume it means either functionality was added to support an as-yet-unannounced product (which, in Intel's case, perhaps means a chipset or CPU), or to fix some kind of minor issue, like a text string.
 
Perhaps if you were to contact Intel directly you could find out more about the change?

Answer:P50 - Use "MS inbox driver" Instead of "Intel Rapid Storage Technology"? What?

Inbox drivers are drivers that Microsoft ships "in the box".   Basically they are the drivers already installed into the Windows OS intallers, or pushed down by Microsoft to your system during updates       So if your system is not having issues ,I would avoid the manually updating  Hope that helps

Hi there,I have a brand new Lenovo E530 to which I added mSata SDD (64GB) which serves as my OS drive.Is there any point in installing ISRT for me? from what I understand ISRT is used for managing small SSD caches while my entire OS is installed on the SSD drive. What about the BIOS update which appears at Lenovo's web site? can upgrading the bios can do anygood for me? Thanks 

Answer:Do I need to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Hey there Slava,
 
To gain a little bit more clarity which are you exactly wanting to inquire about?
 
My understanding is that the Intel Smart Response Technology(ISRT) is caching feature of Intel Rapid Storage Technology(IRST). 
 
Additionally, this will want to use the SSD as a caching device, rather than a bootable drive, so your current setup with OS on the 64GB SSD may not work in this instance. I found this article interesting that may be useful to you in deciding the path you would like to take. Ultimately, evaluate what you will be using the machine for, will these utilities help drive better results for those activities?
 
To know what changes would impact with you a BIOS Update, do you know what version BIOS currently have? Reviewing the summary of changes can give you an idea of what impact you will see with each version. I hope this helps Slava.

Hi, I downloaded the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver from my motherboard's driver page thinking it was a newer version of the driver.

On running the setup.exe I was prompted to remove the current driver or repair it. I chose to remove thinking the new version would install after that. The setup seemed to close after removing so I opened it up again but was greeted with the same prompts as before.

If I choose either remove or repair again I get an error message: "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it"

It's turns out the version I downloaded was not newer and was the same as I had currently installed. Now I am unsure whether the driver is still installed. The IRST software app that comes with this driver is no longer in my taskbar tray or anywhere to be found for that matter.

I don't seem to be able to re-install the driver due to the error I'm getting. I tried the driver available at Intel instead but with this one I get an error: " fatal error during installation"

It seems as though the installation is corrupted?

Hi guys,

Got this laptop (Asus F751LN) and it has a 24GB SSD (and a separate 1TB HDD) which I assume is used for data caching. Problem is I looked quite a bit over various threads and forums and didn't found an answer to my question. And that would be "What do I need to install in order to use the SSD as cache?".

Over at Intel's site they have a Windows 10 driver but it is named "Intel Rapid Storage Technology RAID Driver". My laptop doesn't have the option in the BIOS to turn the SATA mode to RAID. I have only AHCI. I assume there should be a way for the SSD to be used as cache in this mode because why would they include it in the laptop if it can't be used. Wouldn't make any sense.

One more thing, I run Windows 10 64 bit currently. Any help will be much appreciated.

I am hoping someone has solved this themselves, or knows how to research the problem further than I. My next recourse is to re-install the system without IRST.

The system works well, in general, but every once in a while, the RAID driver from IRST (IaStor.sys) becomes very resource hungry, taking at a minimum 25% of the CPU with peaks that go much higher. While this load would normally be tolerable, if it happens during streaming a video, or playing a game, it causes momentary freeze-ups where the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive, and video drops several seconds worth of frames.

IaStor runs normally in the background with fractional CPU load, so I am thinking the overload comes during some error checking. I have checked the process through Process Explorer, and there are level 0 and level 1 priority threads occurring.

I should also note that this problem has become worse with time.

Any suggestions for a next move that do not require a re-install?

I don't know if this is a general thing, or some specific thing that should be elsewhere, so...

Asus X99 Deluxe, 5820k, 1TB SSD, 3TB data HDD, 2TB backup HDD

The system I just put together does NOT have any RAID disks. I've had RAID setups in the past and found that the frequency of disk failure was DRASTICALLY lower than the frequency of stupid human tricks (my failure). So, I have internal and external backups that run regularly.

I looked at the information at Intel on the Rapid Storage Technology. It CLAIMS a variety of performance and reliability gains even WITHOUT RAID. So, I turned it on.

I ignored the Ctrl/I invite to create RAID volumes and let the 8.1 system boot normally. Won't boot. After a LONG time sitting and spinning, a VERY quick screen flashes that it encountered errors and throws me back to the BIOS.

If I turn RST back off, boots normally...

Two questions: IS there, in fact, any advantage to what RST provides for non-RAID systems? Intel claims improvements for both HDD and SDD drives. I've seen topics that claimed performance improvements because the drivers are better than the default ones. I've seen entries that claimed absolutely NO improvement...

If there IS an advantage, can someone tell me how to get RST to work properly in a non-RAID system?

Answer:Intel Rapid Storage Technology in NON-RAID system

Don't use it myself. Had it installed for awhile and seemed to cause problems. Uninstalled and don't notice any performance hit.

Personally believe the fewer of these add-ons you can run with the better.

Hello,

I have a problem with Autoplay not working on a DVD drive which I have traced to the installation of the Intel Rapid Storage driver.

This is on a new build computer (Asus Hero VIII) and the driver was installed from the motherboard support DVD.

When the installation of the drivers was started autoplay worked OK when the support DVD was inserted.

After that autoplay would not work.

After a lot of testing I discovered that it was the Intel rapid Storage drivers that were installed from the DVD that caused the problem.

When they were removed autoplay works OK.
When they are re-installed autoplay stops working again.

Question:

What is Intel Rapid Storage drivers used for ?

I have the following drives on my system:-

1. Samsung SM951 M2 AHCI 256GByte drive for Windows 7 Pro 64bit OS
2. SanDisk 256 GByte SSD
3. 2 off 2, TByte Seagate HD's
4. 2 off, Asus DRW-24F1MT DVD Re-writers.

I do not use RAID.

Do I need Intel Rapid Storage installed ?

Hi Mobal,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are not able to power off optical drive after updating the Intel Rapid Storage driver.
 
Try rolling back the driver from device manager. Go to control panel -> Device manager. Under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, go to properties of SATA driver. Roll back the driver. Else, you can manually install the previous version to resolve the issue.
 
Hope this helps!

** problem was a corruption with my RAID 1 config between two of my drives for windows to see it as (1) drive.
it happened when I changed my drive type in BIOS from RAID to AHCI. You shouldn't do this as it will leave you with a corrupted windows install as it doesn't know how your drives are configured.

I have been getting BSOD errors for IRQ Not Less than or Equal, Driver Power State Failure, critical process died, and inaccessible boot device.  I provided my mini dump file to tenforums and one of the issues besides updating drivers that may be corrupt was to check the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. I also frequently get errors from Intel Rapid Storage Technology.  When I go into the program I don't see an error.  Your website doesn't have Windows 10 drivers.  Can I download the latest driver from intel?  It says to go to the computer manufacturer.  It also describes updating the firmware.  Please advise what I need to do to correct this. Thanks.  Marc

Hello, I took delivery of my new ThinkPad X270 three days ago. It is a 20HN model, and it has the 512 GB Intel SSD, with Windows 10 Pro. One of the problems I am having with the machine is that it randomly freezes for a few seconds intermittently. I read on the Microsoft forum that one solution to this was to check of Intel Rapid Space Technology was installed. In my device manager, I noticed that Rapid Storage Technology was missing. Instead, only the Microsoft Storae Spaces Controller and Standard NVM Express Controller are visible. Then there are no IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in the device manager, either. I downloaded the driver for Intel RST from the Lenovo web site and installed it, but when I rebooted my systel the storage controllers were still the same Microsoft ones, and the Intel RST was still not showing in the Device Manager. I also re-installed the chipset software, but the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers didn't show up either. This was all on a clean install of Windows 10. I already tried using the native troubleshooter app on Windows 10 as well as running an SFC scan, neither of these fixed the problem. Coud someone advise what I should do to install Intel RST?

My computer (dell xps 8300) recently froze and upon restarting it it marked one of my RAID 0 hard drives as having an error. Surprisingly my computer still works same as always and after some investigating i traced the freezing to vuze trying to verify a file after it had already down. I deleted the files causing the freezing and have not encountered anymore freezing issues yet. But i'm still very concerned, so i ran a check disk, which quickly says the drive is clean and i've also run the dell support center HD tests (Long & Short) several time and they always say the drives are working fine. Today i ran a another windows checkdisk which took alot longer but seem to come up clean. But when the computer restarted afterwards the disk was again marked as having an error . So i ran the dell support center short and long hard drive tests yet again and its still saying everything is working properly. I then decided to try running some other hard drive diagnostics namely seagate seatools and Western Digital lifeguard. The drive passed the Seatool's tests, but almost immediately failed the WD Lifeguard tests giving the error that there are too many bad sectors. Any advice on how to proceed would be much appreciated!
 

Answer:Is my Dell XPS 8300 hard drive failing? Intel Rapid Storage detects error.

Forlorn112 what version of IRSM (Intel Rapid Storage Manager) are you using first of all? If it's an older version like 8 or 9 they are known to throw drives in to a failed status, and you may want to update it to IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Depending on what OS your running you my not be able to update to IRST,I know XP only goes to version 8.9.0.1023,but if you have Win 7 you can update to version 12.5.0.1066. This would be the first step that would take with issue, but after the update if the drive is still showing as failed, then yes I would suspect that there would be an issue with it and have it replaced. Seeing that you are running a RAID 0, before the drive goes out completely, I would back your data up on it seeing that with a RAID 0 if one drive craps out the entire array is gone. Unlike a RAID 1 you would be able to throw a replacement drive in to the array and rebuild it.

Hi,
 
I have a T420s running Windows 7, 64-Bit
 
I was recently notified by the Lenovo System Update that an optional Update for the "Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Device" is available. I installed the update together with two other updates provided. The update required a reboot.
 
After the reboot the system didn't start anymore as a blue screen occured during start up of windows. To fix this I restarted Windows to the last working configuration, which worked. The other two updates are installed now, the "Intel Rapid Storage AHCI driver" is provided as an optional update agian.
 
Afterwards I read the specifications of the said update and found, that a T420s with Windows 7 is not on the supported list of the update. Could please somebody make sure that the updates provided by the System Update are supported by the running system? Thanks.

It would appear that the latest "Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver and Management Console" driver that was released on May 10th may be defective. What I can say for certain is that with the driver installed I will typically blue screen several times a day. If I roll back to the previously released driver, no more blue screens.
Details:
Problem driver: Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Driver-and-Management_CRRKJ_WIN_15.2.15.1058_A07.EXEDriver that works: Serial-ATA_Driver_02RN8_WN32_15.2.10.1044_A05.EXE
System affected: Dell XPS 15 9550 with the 1TB Samsung SSD, Service Tag # 235BG72. I have no way of knowing if other configurations may also be affected.
Note: So far the issue really seems like it is with this driver because I have never once been able to bluescreen it yet in my current configuration with the older driver installed. However, if I upgrade to the newer driver then I can pretty much guarantee several blue screens a day. Note too that my drive is bitlocker protected. No idea if this makes any difference, but thought that I would mention it.
Would it be possible for a Dell employee to pass this along to someone who can look into this?

My questions are, Are programs Intel Rapid Storage technology and Intel Security assist considered to be bloatware? They came with the laptop and cant figure exactly what they do.

I have enabled RAID on my HDD and in the BIOS and finally put in a SSD 120gb that works. Now I don't know how to actually run the Intel Rapid Storage utility that I did do once before.

I downloaded the files from Microsoft but like so many Windows 7 (64-bit) files there's no instruction of where to put them. A self installation would've been handy.

So does anyone know how to set up IRS inside Windows 7? It's something to do with Administrative Tools but there's nothing showing in that menu when I go to Disk Management.

Sounds simple but everyone seems to assume you set this thing up automatically.

This is the setup as it shows from boot up.


I managed to find the setup program on this link https://downloadcenter.intel.com/De...apid+Storage+Technology+(Intel«+RST)&lang=eng

I built a new system for a relative using the H87-G43 MSI board. I have set up a SSD 64 GB to be used as a Caching disk using Intel's Rapid Storage Technology.

I followed the set up procedure which required a BIOS change to RAID Mode before the OS was installed. So I have one 500 GB drive that is accelerated and the 64 GB SSD that is being used as the caching drive.

No errors or BSOD's when booting, I had to enable the drive in the Intel console for this(it sees the drive just fine) to work. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology(Intel SRT) really improves boot times over just using the mechanical drive. It is not a performance issue I am having just a reporting issue I think.

The question I have is about how Windows is reporting the drives in Device manager and computer management.

Windows 7 shows the information below in bold.

In device manager only the 500 GB drive is shown and it is shown as a SCSI device.
In computer management only the 500 GB drive is shown.
Both drives are shown in the Intel management console for this technology.

The computer is running fine and zippy, I am just a bit concerned about the 500GB drive (SATA) being reported as SCSI. Funny I downloaded SPECCY and it shows it as a SCSI drive as well using a 40 pin cable.

Any help, thoughts, ideas, or experience with this technology that could enlighten me would be very helpful.

Thanks

Please help. I have no idea what Intel Rapid Storage Technology is. I've heard it used in reference to RAID (which I have no idea what that is), but I have heard that it increases performance and battery life.

Problem is, sometimes my computer starts to glitch and the sound gets all distorted and things start to respond really slowly (especially games that use flash) and I'm sure it has something to do with the Rapid Storage Technology because every time I hear that distorted sound, the little Rapid Storage Tech balloon pops up and says something about detecting a port or deleting a port. And the only way to get my computer to start acting normally again is to restart it.

Any ideas?:confused
