Unable to update to Windows 10, version 1903 (Intel RST) (iastora.sys)

HP OMEN - 15-ax008tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I am attempting to update to update 1903 as Windows notes that "You're currently running a version of windows that's nearing the end of support." I am currently on 1803. However, I received an error dialog related to Intel Rapid Storage Technology and a link to this MS article:

The error dialog I have is the same as in that link.

On HP's product support page, the storage driver hasn't been updated since 2016.


I have downloaded and installed the driver (SetupRST.exe) that the above MS article links to, but the update is still unable to go through. I tried both the exact version that MS links to, and the latest,, but neither works.


I found the file that the error dialog seems to be referring to in the location:


But the version listed on that is, not the versions that I tried to install. I suspect that this means that I need a HP provided version of Intel RST, but as noted above, it doesn't seem to exist.


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
