Hello igpu,

 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel ® communities.

 

 

I would like to begin by mentioning that this feature is end-of-life and is no longer supported beginning with the Intel(R) RST 16.0 product line. That is the reason why you are unable to find the acceleration option.

 

 

You could uninstall the current version of Intel ® Rapid Storage Technology and install the version 15.9 which still has the acceleration support:

Or else, we have a product that accelerates the access as well, called Intel ® Optane Memory. Here is a link where you can find more information:

I hope this helps.

Hallo David,

thank you for your answer.

I have not Optane Memory and i dont want buy it. I want later buy SSD M2 NVME.

I have Windows 10 Pro Version 1809. If i want install the IRST V15, my Windows sad this Driver is old. Optimal Driver is allready installed.

You think can i only install the IRST Software without IAStore Driver ?

Hello igpu,

 

 

In this case, it is not possible to only install the software. This is because the driver changes different things from the way Rapid Storage Technology behaves, this means that the interface must change to reflect those differences.

 

 

The message you are getting could be due to the system not allowing an older version of the software/driver. I also checked the motherboard manufacturer's website and the only version available for your chipset is the 16.5 which is part of the ones that don't support the SSD acceleration option.

Hi there,

I have a probook 450 G5 with processor i7-8550U along with a HDD and a SSD.

 

After installing Intel RST, I dont see an option to accelerate my HDD.

Could you please tell me what's wrong ?

Hallo David,

Thank you for your Tips.

 

Yes my Motherboard IRST Firmware is Version 16.5. So I have no more chance with a SATA SSD to accelerate my hard drive that's a shame. Well then I will soon buy an M2 SSD PCI-E.

Regards
