4) Click Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Then on the following open page, find and click SetupRST.exe.

5) When it completes downloading, double-click the .exe file to install the driver on your Windows 10.

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your Intel RST driver manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver EasyDriver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct driver for your Intel RST, and your variant of Windows system, and it will download and install it correctly:
