Intel SSD 670p driver

Hello all,

I just bought a laptop with a 670p ssd (INTEL SSDPEKNU512GZ). When I want to install windows I cannot see any partitions.
I downloaded some client drivers, but didn't work for 670p - cannot see it in specifications.

Anyone with this issue and where I can find the correct drivers for this product, please?

Thank you

Hi @AlexLuchian 

While you installing Windows 10 on Intel NVMe drive no additional driver is required. Instead of using the installation media you bought, prepare new installation USB using Microsoft Media Creation Tool.  

Follow Clean Install Windows 10 | Tutorials (tenforums.com) tutorial.

Hi @LeonWaksman 

I tried with Microsoft Media Creation Tool, also. But it's same, no partition available to install windows (see the photo).

Had same issue with previous laptop, with a 660p version. Managed to find the driver https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19755/intel-rapid-storage-technology-driver-install...

but, for the 670p series not working...

Thank you

Hi @AlexLuchian 

1. Is this SSD recognized (visible) in BIOS?

2. Are you aware that only UEFI BIOS is supported? Please read  System Requirements for OS Installation on a PCIe* NVMe* SSD

and NVMe Drive Installation Guide.

Hi All,

 

I have exactly same issue with SSDPEKNU512GZ.

I followed instructions from intel site. Downloaded latest driver for 670p Client PCIe.

It was copied to usb drive.

When I tried to load driver it is available and i can chose it. It looks like the driver installed but I alwas got an error message.

It could not find any drives even I use win 8.1/win10 or win 11 install usb media.

The hardver looks supported by hardver because I tried winPE sytem and it can handle it.

670p Driver looks incorrect or something missing from instruction.

Could you please help me if you was able to load driver?

 

Thanks,

Peter

Hi Leon,

 

I encountered a similar problem on Asus VivoBook 15 (ssdpeknw 512G8), but I bought a separate license for Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 and now I can’t install it.

Tried to download drivers https://www.intel.ru/content/www/ru/ru/products/sku/149405/intel-ssd-660p-series-512gb-m-2-80mm-pcie... - x4 -3d2-qlc/downloads.html but the installer doesn't see them.

I was able to advance a step in the installation process using these drivers https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19512/intel-rapid-storage-technology-driver-install... intel-optane-memory-10th-and-11th-gen-platforms.html

 

But as soon as the system completes the installation and goes to reboot, I get an error!

 

The operating system could not be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.

File: iaStorAfs.sys

Error code: 0xc0000098

 

Please help me to solve my problem.

 

Regards,

Sergey

Since there's no answer here, just the usual unknowledgeable equivalent of "have you tried rebooting," the drivers that worked for me (exact same SKU in an Asus Vivobook Pro 14 OLED) are here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/19512/intel-rapid-storage-technology-driver-install...

You should verify that the SATA Mode in BIOS is set to AHCI, rather than RAID or Intel RST...  The AHCI should be the default SATA mode. The other two modes should be used only for RAID configuration or Optane Memory.

Hi Sergey,

You should not write your question in someone else thread. You should open thread of yours.

1. Any way, you don't need to add any drivers to Windows 10 installation USB.

2. You need to prepare installation media using Microsoft Media Creation Tool. Do not use the installation media you bought. Use only the license number.

3. Verify that Sata Configuration (Mode) is set to AHCI and that your SSD is recognized in BIOS.

4. While booting from the installation media, boot from the line with label UEFI.

5. See this video for help.
