How to install Intel Rapid Store Technology on a newly imaged Windows 10 PC

New Contributor I

I'm looking for a guide on how to install Intel Rapid Store Technology. Recently, my computer crashed and I reinstalled Windows 10 64-bit. I don't know how to configure my PC to enable Intel Rapid Store Technology. How do I create "RAID" disks, etc? The PC is a Dell Inspiron 2350. It has a 30GB SSD and a 1TB Hard Drive. Intel RST used to work fine before it crashed.

Hello SiddRajput,

Thank you for joining the Intel Community Support.

I understand that you would like to install Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) in your computer. I would like to help you.

Because you have a Dell Inspiron 2350, it is recommended to install the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver provided by your system manufacturer. Here is the driver compatible with your system. ,A14

To make sure it is installed correctly, you can follow the installation instructions included in this link > Intel® RST User Guide > 6.3 Installation Steps.

Keep in mind that you may need to enable these settings in BIOS to create RAID volumes.

1. Tap the F2 key to enter System Setup when the Dell logo appears


2. Select the Configuration menu, then the SATA Drives menu.


3. Set the Chipset SATA Mode to RAID.


4. Save the BIOS settings and exit the BIOS Setup program.
