RST and drivers versions (OS and PRE-OS)

Hello everyone!

My config is Z97 + i7-4770 + Windows 10 x64 TH2. The UEFI & OROM version in BIOS is 13.0.0.2075 (latest available from a manufacturer site). I was able to find that this release is initial for 9 series chipsets.

But I was unable to find corresponding OS drivers and RST of version 13.0.0.1098. And they do not officially support Windows 10 TH2 (Windows 10 at all). Windows itself comes with built-in 13.2.0.1022 driver which does not have OROM/UEFI part and RST software. MB manufacturer provides driver and RST ver. 14.5.0.1081, but it requires OROM/UEFI 14.5.0.2241 (that can be learned from Intel site). I was trying to update BIOS manually with 14.5.0.2241 with partial success - everything worked fine except Dynamic Storage Driver disappeared from RST (14.5.0.1081) and who knows what else was going on behind the scene. So I reverted everything back with a stock firmware (which contains 13.0.0.2075).

And finally, first and latest driver/RST which officially supports Windows 10 TH2 is 14.8.0.1042 (OROM/UEFI 14.8.0.2377).

 

Could anyone help me to solve this puzzle choosing best driver/software option for my setup?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm trying to find the cause of 0xC00000D4 Windows error which copes with Fast Startup and throws frequently.

Hello, dpokrovsky:

Are you trying to set a RAID configuration?

I use Smart Response to accelerate a non-system HDD (I did a trick - had created a cache on a system SSD from WinPE with CLI and then partitioned and installed a system on the rest of it). Therefore some disks are recognized as RAID0 (accelerated HDD and part of SSD) while others are Non-Raid. Obviously in BIOS storage mode is set to RAID.

Could you please attach a screenshot of the current configuration? I just want to double check some information.

Thank you for the screenshots.

The best configuration for your system is the 14.8.0.1042 since this version supports Windows® 10 and it was developed for your PCH controller, for the BIOS itself you need to check with your computer manufacturer in order to confirm what is best for you, just take into consideration that the BIOS itself has to have an update for the Option ROM otherwise I will not work in this specific case.
