Win10 1903 upgrade is now blocked on some Intel RST drivers

2019-07-26, 19:11 PM

Intel and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) drivers and the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.  If your device has an Intel® RST driver version between 15.1.0.1002 and 15.5.2.1053 installed, it cannot install the May 2019 Update.

Versions 15.5.2.1054 or later are compatible, and a device that has these drivers installed can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. For affected devices, the recommended version is 15.9.6.1044.

 

The latest version : 17.5.1.1021 : https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28966/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-User-Interface-and-Driver?v=t

Re: Win10 1903 upgrade is now blocked on some Intel RST drivers

I bought a Yoga 930, brand new, first day out of box. Windows 10 1903 will not install, claims RST version incompatibility. However, there is no indication that RST is installed on my device, and none of the driver updates or updaters will install or run on the Yoga. Device Manager does not see any RST driver, and RST does not show up in search, nor does it appear in Apps listings. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I am definitely not a computer genius.

Thank you, alex5723, for the suggestions. When I look in Device Manager, Storage Controllers, it shows "Microsoft Storage Spaces Controller" and "Standard NVM Express Controller". Nothing else.

 

The application is not installed on my Yoga, so Options 2&3 do not work.

Did you run as admin ?

Did you check under IDE ATA/ATAPI ?

I have the same issue as OP. There is no IDE section in device manager and no way to remove the alleged driver

I have the same issue as well. Posted on this thread though:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Unable-to-install-Windows-10-update-1903-on-Yoga-C930/td-p/4486336

 

People keep saying uninstall the driver, reinstall the program, etc. But the program is nowhere to be found, nor are there any devices using it (I updated everything with the world Intel to be safe). I tried to install it, and it said my platform is unsupported.

 

Any help is much appreciated!

Look for iastora.sys. If you have the file than rename it to iastora.sys.old and try installing 1903.

 

Did Microsoft push 1903 to you or have you decided to install on your own ? Never run check for update.

 

My y530-15ICH Windows 10 1809 doesn't have/need Intel RST drivers and I don't have iastora.sys file, I have Microsoft's stornvme.sys file.

 

For now I have blocked 1903  for 6 month in Windows Update.

I did try that (well I renamed it iastora.old), and I got stuck in a loop where every time I restarted, then tried to update, it would say I need to restart to apply firmware changes.

I had also just update any driver with the name Intel in it, and was skipping restarts until I had updated all of them. So that may have goofed something up too.

But what I tried next worked: I removed iastora.sys from that folder. After this restart, the update worked just fine! Is this iastora.sys something I will need? Should I try to put it back or find a "fixed" version?

Also, I decided to install it on my own. I needed to for a program that said it required an update newer than October 2018. I searching for specific updates before 1903, but from what I read online, it isn't possible to cherry pick updates in Windows 10.

Thanks for the help!

iastora.sys is part of Intel RST and is required for managing storage hardware.
