I just got a new rig and have a problem with my Windows update and i traced the problem to rapid storage technology driver.
I am 100% sure the problem lies with rapid storage tech driver since when i uninstall it everything is ok meaning Windows update is getting updates.
When the RST driver is instaled the Windows update is saying "windows update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running windows 7".
I checked if the services of the windows update are turned on and they are and every thing else is also.
I first instaled the driver that came with my Asrock z97 pro3 motherboard. after i diagnosed the problem i tryed to install latest version of the driver but the problem is still there.
Really need help with this since i dont want to uninstall and install this driver every few days to get updates....
My sistem is
Asrock z97 pro3
gainward gtx 970
Kingston DDR3 1600MHz
TT smart se 630w
Windows 7 ult
Ty for the help.
Thanks for joining the Chipset community.
What Intel® Rapid Storage version are you currently testing on the computer?
Does it happen with earlier driver versions?
Have you tested customized drivers from Asrock?
Was your computer Bios updated?
Np Allan glad to be here well not really since i am here because i have a problem:P
Curent IRS version instaled on my computer is 126.96.36.1998 (thats the one i got from AsRock(after i have seen your post before that i had the latest driver from your page 188.8.131.520. and before that i had v184.108.40.2068_PV that came with the cd i got from Asrock.
It happens with all versions and only time Windows update works when i uninstall RST driver.
I did after i have seen you post didnt help since as far as i can see they just had earlyer version of your driver.
I updated bios after i have seen your post the problem is still there.
So still stuck:/
I do not have reports of similar issues about Intel® Rapid Storage crashing windows update.
Please test version 12.9 and let me know your findings
I get this error when i try to install this version that you gave me the link as well when i try to install any 12 version i tryed 13 version after that and i can install it normaly but the problem with update is still there.
How much will i lose performance wise if i just dont have this driver installed?
Since as far as i can see everything is working normally with out it.
ty once again for you time and sorry for not replying sooner had a busy few days...
