    Locating IRST Drivers

    Has anyone found IRST drivers that work in Windows 10? I attempted to install WHQL and WHQL but it said, "This platform is not supported." Recommendations?

    These are for your motherboard: Intel Download Center

    They are not made for Windows 10 so I'd recommend downloading the then installing them manually through the Control Panel, if you don't know how to do so then just download the SetupRST.exe and make sure you run the file in compatibility mode for Windows 7/8/8.1 when installing.

    OK. I got it installed by extracting the .exe to a folder. It worked and I got it installed. However, the service actually doesn't ever start. The program is actually running though.

    Has anyone else actually gotten it to work?

    That's fine as is, you don't need the service to be running for the driver to work with your SATA controller; if you want to check if the driver installed correctly go to Control Panel > Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller and it should say Intel xxx SATA Controller.

    This is the reason why I recommended installing just the driver manually via Control Panel's Device Manager, since IRST the software itself isn't written to be Windows 10 compatible but the driver should work just the same.

    You're good as is, don't worry anymore about IRST on your machine. Try and look for any other driver or software related problems with Windows 10 you can possibly find a fix for via this forum.

    How do you install this via control panel?

    Also, does it matter if I use the newest version with my older motherboard when it comes to IRST?

    The newest version does not support your SATA chipset thus only that driver being the latest in the 13.x series works for your specific motherboard ATM.

    Installing through Control Panel only installs the driver and not the IRST software which is not needed BTW, but since you went the second route of installing via Setup it works just the same only that you have the IRST software installed too that is not specifically written for Windows 10 thus the service is not starting but it's nothing to worry about since the driver installs through the Setup method too.

    Well, I actually installed 14.x.x. So I should uninstall then right and get 13.x?

    If 14.x worked and supports your chipset then that's all good, I don't actually own a Intel motherboard with the exact same chipset as your but I do own a Intel laptop and the general basis for installing the SATA chipset driver is the same.

    Like said, the way to check if the driver actually installed in going into the Control Panel > Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller and it should say Intel xxx SATA Controller.
