Microsoft warned about blocking the installation of the new version of Windows 10 and Windows Server (1903) on some devices with Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) drivers. According to the developers, this decision was made due to compatibility issues.

The problem concerns the versions of Intel RST from 15.1.0.1002 to 15.5.2.1053. Devices based on newer versions (from 15.5.2.1054) lock the May update is not threatened.

“Intel and Microsoft have discovered compatibility issues with some versions of Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) drivers with the May 10 update of Windows 10,” explains Microsoft. To solve the problem, Microsoft is proposing to upgrade Intel RST to newer versions.

Recall that in early July 2019, Microsoft blocked the installation of the May 10 update of Windows 10 (1903) on some outdated Mac models or devices with outdated versions of the Apple Boot Camp software. The problem concerns the owners of Mac, released before 2012, as well as those who use outdated versions of Apple Boot Camp drivers or Windows Support.

At the end of June 2019, Windows 10 warned about the impossibility of installing version 1903. On devices that are not fully compatible with Windows 10, the new versions of the “dozens” do not appear in the “Windows Update”.
