On my Windows 10 machine the RST service does not run. I have attached screenshots. I have tried changing the startup to Auto, with no result, and I can't start it manually, but my raid seems to work properly. Event viewer is full of errors from RST and iastor [see screenshots]
I believe there may be a mismatch in versioning, but I'm no expert: Add/Remove reports a different version of the Management Engine than Device Manager [see the first screenshot].
I can provide any other information you need. Just ask :)
Thanks for the time :)
Hi, I did a little more digging and found that there are two different versions of iastorsw.inf and iastorswext.inf installed in the Windows Driver store . The version numbers are: 126.96.36.1999 and 188.8.131.520
Does this information help in any way?
Well, that isn't the answer I was hoping for. Re-installing the OS simply isn't an option right now, maybe later when the machine isn't in demand. Is there really no method to completely remove RST and its relevant registry entries and re-install it without ripping out the entire OS?
I'll have to look for more information on my own.
Thanks for replying anyway :)
HI, I am going to reopen this.
I've since done a clean install of Win10, and installed RST from the mainboard install disk. However, the service still does not run, and IAStorDataMgrSvc will not start manually. What can I provide to help troubleshot this issue?
