    Intel RST service is not running


    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The Intel RST service is for the Intel Rapid Storage Driver. The Intel Rapid Storage Driver provides speed for data transfer and improves the performance for SATA drives or PCIe drives.

    • What is the make and model of the computer and motherboard?

    You can follow the methods mentioned below and check if that helps:

    Method 1: Changing the startup type for Service

    You can try changing the startup type for the Intel RST service and check if that makes a difference. Please refer the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press and hold Windows key + R, to open
      Run dialog box.
    2. Type serivces.msc and click on
    3. Now, scroll down, look for Intel RST service, right click on it and click on
    4. Now, under startup type select Automatic from the drop down menu.
    5. Click on Apply and OK.

    Method 2: Updating the drivers manually

    You can try downloading the latest version of Intel Rapid Storage Driver from the

    Intel Website
    and check if that helps. However, I would suggest checking with the motherboard manufacturer website as well.

    If you are using RAID configuration, I suggest you to post your query in

    TechNet forums
    , where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on RAID configuration.

    intel rst driver

    i dont have win 10 installed so cannot try... does intel rst works? i have found that it is much faster then MS default drivers with 97 boards with win 8.1. Not so much in benchmarks, but in practice win 8.1 boots much faster with iastora.sys then benchmarks
    difference suggests.

    intel RST driver

    What Is The Latest Intel RST Driver for Intel X99 Platforms? is not listed on Intel's site so I think those are for ASUS ROGs, not MSI. I can't take any chances on them. I did some searching and I found this Intel(R) X99 Chipset Product Specifications

    Where it says RAID configuration, RST 14. I see on Intel's download page for RST that there are RST versions 14, recently been updated to in March 2019: Download Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology (Intel(R) RST) User Interface and Driver

    Are the "14" drivers the one's I need? My installed version is also listed there, These Intel drivers are so hard to make sense on. *Confused
