Update Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver on Windows 10


Hi Support,

Windows 10 recently forced itself upon me and since then I have been experiencing a 'driver_power_state_failure' Blue Screen of Death on my fist attempt to boot the laptop. The machine restarts itself and successfully starts on the second attempt but the whole process take about 5 minutes.


I was previously on a windows 8.1 version and everything was working fine.

I have tried to update my Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver with the latest (Latest) version but it fails due to the below error:

You need to make sure your computer is fully compatible with Windows® 10.

Please provide your computer model number or the chipset type on your computer.



My machine is an ASUS UX32A.


It's running quad Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz processors.

Thanks for the information.

Download and try installing the latest Intel® Rapid Storage 14.8 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25165/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver Download Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver

Please bear in mind that you will try to install software that may or may not work for your system. This will depend on your computer maker. It is recommended to install customized drivers from your computer manufacturer.



Hi Allan,

I have already tried to install that driver ( (Latest) version) as stated in my original post but it failed with the error log as reported originally.

I am currently talking to ASUS support to see if they are able to provide customized drivers but they haven't been able to so far.


I was hoping the supplied error log would be able to provide a reason why the installation failed and hence a solution could be drawn up.



Thank you for the information. I hope you can get customized Intel® Rapid Storage software for your computer model.

The ASUS UX32A is based on an Intel 7-series chipset (HM76); for those, the recommended Intel RST/AHCI drivers are the ones from the 12.x or 13.x release branches. The latest ones seem to be v12.9.4.1000, which can be downloaded http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=353&func=fileinfo&id=687&lang=... here (scroll down), and v13.6.2.1001, which can be downloaded http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1296&lang=en here.

Note that these drivers aren't officially supported in Windows 10, since that OS didn't exist by the time those drivers have been released. They should work nonetheless.

The drivers from the 14.x release branch you tried to install are supposed to be used with an Intel chipset system from 8-Series up.

Give it a try and lets us know if one of the drivers above works for you (it's recommended, though usually not necessary, to uninstall any installed RST/AHCI driver before installing a different one).


Hi YseGuy, thank you for the response.

I was unable to upgrade with the driver but I was successful with the driver installation. It didn't solve the issue however and I am still receiving the same BSOD. Asus support can't provide the correct windows 10 drivers as they aren't available yet, such a joke.


At this stage I will just roll back to windows 8.1.

Thanks for the support,

I doubt ASUS will ever release Win10 drivers for an "old" product like the UX32A.

Anyway, there are still some things you could try:

  • Run Windows System File Checker (sfc /scannow) from an elevated command prompt (just to make sure there ain't a problem with your system files).
  • If memory dump creation is disabled, enable it, wait for the next BSOD, and analyze the dump file with a tool like http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html BlueScreenView. This should give you the information which driver(s) cause the BSOD (or if dump creation is enabled already, analyze one of the existing dump files. They should be located in the OS root directory (C:\Windows)).
  • Run Windows Driver Verifier (built into the OS; search the Web on how to use it), for the same purpose (ie to identify problematic drivers).
  • Remove Intel RST/AHCI driver package altogether, and use the default drivers provided by the OS.
