I am sorry to hear you are having issues with the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology tool.

The version that you are currently trying to run is not compatible with Windows® 10, so this could be reason why the "Intel RST Service is not running". Let's gather some information regarding your system configuration in order to get the right driver configuration, provide your computer and chipset model.

Hello Ynot?

It seems like the report did not pull the motherboard model information, it says it's an ASUS but not the model. Could you please check the model one more time?

Thanks again, Amy C.

Happily, I think I found the answer:

Asus X99-A ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard

CPU Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Precessor

I hope all that helps you to help me. :-)

Thanks again! -Steve- "Ynot"

Thank you for the model information.

Let's try updating version to version, find the file here: Uninstall the old version with the steps below and then proceed with the installation of the latest driver.

Instructions to uninstall the Intel® RST

  1. Open the Add/Remove Programs window
  2. Find the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.
  3. Right click Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver and select Uninstall.
  4. Follow the prompts stated by the Intel Installation Framework window to complete the process.
  5. Reboot the computer after the uninstall process has finished.

Please let me know how it goes.

Dear Amy C.

IRST resides now in Systray with a green check mark.

Opening the App and going to Help | About leads me to screen with lower-right reading:

I saw in the unzipped files that there are x32 and x64 options, but I just ran the .EXE in the DISK folder. I don't know how to check that it installed correctly for my x64 machine, and I don't know both how to find the answer to that in the System Report or how to copy the information listed there to this message. Nor do I find a way to attach a file to this message.

But I THINK it is probably okay now. I have just taken a peek at "Managing the Storage System and wonder whether I need to become actively involved with this application or whether it will now just "do its thing" to good advantage. Does it automatically scan the system for how things are now and then make recommendations?

Thanks very much for getting me this far. Now I can use some guidance. :-)

All best wishes, -Steve-
