My problems started when I followed the "Intel® Driver & Support Assistant" prompt t update the Intel RST. I realized a couple of weeks later that my DVD drive had stopped working, though it was connected to a (ASmedia likely) SATA2 port.
I just got the DVD drive working again by rolling back the Intel Chipset SATA RAID Controller to ver 220.127.116.11. Now the Driver & Support Assistant says:
HOWEVER, after the rollback Intel RST now shows no devices in the Storage System View, though the ssu report lists the "Intel RAID 1 Volume," for example.
How do I get Intel RST working again? Re-install an earlier version of Intel RST?
Thank you for your reply.
> I can see that you have a 3rd generation platform, Windows* 10 is not supported with that platform
Win 10 x64 is supported on Ivy Bridge according to https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006105/processors.html.
> I would like to know how you rolled back the driver for Rapid Storage Technology
In Device Manager under "Storage controllers" I clicked Properties, and Driver tab, then clicked "Roll Back Driver."
> I also want to know if you have tried checking in the BIOS extension of Intel ® Rapid Storage Technology, this is achievable by accessing it during the POST using the combination of Ctrl + I
Ctrl + I didn't do anything in POST, windows just started normally. I don't see Intel Rapid Storage Technology mentioned in the BIOS settings, though "Intel Rapid Start Technology" is mentioned.
