I've been trying to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology to speed up my HDD with my SSD but i get the "This Platform Is Not Supported" error message when I try to install it.
My motherboard is an Asus P8Z68-V PRO and my CPU is an i5-2500K.
I'm running the latest public build of Windows 10.
I did not say W10 would not run, I said it was not supported.
This is your (Sandy Bridge) processor:

This is a list of supported processors:

You can run Windows 10 (for as long as Microsoft lets you), but there is no support.
Perhaps one of the Intel support engineers can provide a solution.
In the meantime, you should think about upgrading your platform to something that is supported.
Hello, NickX__. Thank you for joining the Intel Community.
In order to accelerate an HDD with an SSD, the Intel® Smart Response Technology should be used. In the following link, you can find the requirements in order to use this technology: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005501/boards-and-kits.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005501/boards-and-kits.html
By checking your system configuration, I can see that you are using an Operating System that is not supported for the Intel® Smart Response Technology.
Please make sure to follow the guidelines provided above in order to achieve the configuration you are looking for.
