Intel RST preventing windows update May 2019

HP Recommended
Pavilion X9Z56EA#UUW
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When attempting to install the Windows 10 May 2019 update, I receive the message:

 

"Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST): The inbox storage driver iastora.sys doesn’t work on these systems and causes stability problems on Windows. Check with your software/driver provider for an updated version that runs on this version of Windows."

 

The installer directs me to the Microsoft support:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4514156/updating-to-windows-10-version-1903-on-devices-with...

 

I have attempted the suggested fix to install the latest Intel RST driver (17.5.1.1021) from Intel's homepage, but the problem persists. I have also tried to install the particular driver recommended by MS (15.9.6.1044), but still no luck. Is this a known issue, and if it is, is it a HP or Microsoft issue?

 

Edit/update: Having run the installer of Intel RST driver (17.5.1.1021), the list of installed apps provided by Settings  > Apps > Apps & features will tell me that this is indeed the installed version. However, inspection of the particular file iastora.sys itself reveals that this has not been updated. It would seem that something is preventing the installer from updating iastora.sys, and that this is not detected by Windows, only by the Windows Update installer.

Same problem 7/28/19.  Windows won't update with the old Intel RST driver. Intel website suggests contacting OEM manufacturer for correct driver to install. No useful information using the HP Virtual Assistant. Machine is out of warranty. Hopefully HP will step up and post a solution.

I also receive this message, after a break of 10 days from my Pavillion Windows PC (did not take it on holiday).  If this is a Microsoft update from May, why are we just getting the message now?  Is there an update from HP?  If not, what to do in the meantime?

I have found that when you investigate what is being unzipped from the SP e.g. SP88070\F6\x64; the iastora.sys file is not included in the pack, as such will not be updated.

 

Mine is still showing 15.5.0.1051 e.g C:\SWSetup\DRV\Storage\Intel\PPTS1.xIn_QQPFB2\15.5.0.1051\src\F6 (from the last update installed back in 2017) instead of the expected 16.0.2.1086 installed moments ago.

 

I too have tried a couple of different versions and all with a failure to update the driver files i.e. iastora.sys file as they do not seem to be included in the SP.

 

This is an anoyance and shouldn't have gotten to this stage considering the site indicates that CC-5XX was tested back in may, me thinks not.
