Hey,

Simple question, where do i find driver Intel RST? I have 14700k processor.

Googling Intel Web page, i find two versions:

 

Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver Installation Software with Intel® Optane™ Memory (10th and 11th Gen Platforms)

 

Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver Installation Software with Intel® Optane™ Memory (11th up to 13th Gen Platforms)

 

I cannot find 14th Gen version, i'm in situation i cannot use VMD controller for Windows install, cause there is no driver available.

 

Anyone has same problem?

Hello Arto77,


Thank you for the quick reply.


Since you are using a 3rd party board, the embedded controller may have altered or modified by the board manufacturer so the appropriate driver should be from the board manufacturer. I checked the download site of your motherboard and they have their version of Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver. Please click the link below and download the driver:

Hey Mike,

There is a problem with that link you provided, the IRST driver cannot be found anywhere.

You can find the driver by googling it.
https://www.asus.com/us/supportonly/irst/helpdesk_download/

The version of the driver is V19.1.1.0.1001 from 2022. Needless to say, that version is outdated for Intel 14th generation processors. When installing the driver, the installation ends with an error message stating that this device driver is not compatible.

You would think this would be such a simple thing, if no mass media disks are found in the Windows 11 installation, download the driver, either from the Intel or Asus website, and the installation can continue.

However, I was able to install Windows when I turned off the VMD controller in Bios. I would just like information on how to download the VMD controller driver to the machine. And thus I turn the VMD controller back on. This would enable the use of a RAID configuration.

If the VMD controller is turned on without a driver, Windows crashes into a blue screen.

 

Cheers, Arto

Hello Arto77,

 

Thank you for the update.


In the link that I provided, you can find the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver software V19.5.7.1058 For Windows 10/11 64-bit.

This is dated 2023/09/18. This driver will not depend on the processor since the purpose of this driver is for the system to detect the drives during installation.


If you are having errors during the set up, you may also contact the manufacturer of the board is they may have altered or modified the controllers and those enhancement can only be enabled if you are using their drivers.


Please let us know if you still need assistance.

Hello Arto77,

 

I hope you are having a good day.


I am sending another follow up hoping that you are now talking to the manufacturer of your system. 

Since we have not heard back from you, I need to close this inquiry. 

If you need further assistance, please post a new question as this thread will no longer be monitored.
