My NUC is running with the Windows in-box storahci.sys. Is there a variant of iaStor.sys that works with this unit? If so, which download package would it be?

Hello richard612

 

 

Thank you for joining the community.

 

 

Allow me to share with you that the only iaStor.sys drivers available are provided whit the operating system, I would recommend keeping the operating system updated to have the update on the driver iaStor.sys updated.

Hi, are you implying that I should already be running with an iaStor driver, either in-box or installed from Microsoft Update? My current driver is storahci.sys and I don't think this is the ideal driver.

You will find versions of the iaStor driver in the Intel RST packages, but testing has shown that the performance of the Microsoft version is on par with that of the iaStor driver. Still, feel free to install Intel RST and see if you can find any improvement.
