    I spent hours on this as well, trying multiple updated versions, including complete removal of RST. Finally, I downgraded to a v14 variant of the RST drivers available from the HP support site for my laptop. This allowed me to apply the 1903 update without issue.
    Can you tell me exactly what v14 variant of RST you used? Thanks.

    I`m using this version on the Z170 running 1903, no issues at all.

    Hi I have found fix working for me. The reason windows wont update is becowse it sees old version of the drive, you must go to drivers directory C:\Windows\System32\drivers find old version iastora.sys(thereis old date mine was 2016) and rename it to iastora_old.sys. After that restart the 1903 upgrade with the "fix" button.

    According to device manager, with RST 17.5.1.1021 installed it lists iaStorAC.sys and iaStorAfs.sys as driver files. So is this a case of the RST upgrade not cleaning up an old iaStorA.sys that isn't needed any more? (and that for some reason the 1903 upgrade is using the version of this to detect RST version). I also renamed iastora.sys to iastora_old.sys and restarted the 1903 upgrade with the "fix" button (the "refresh" button doesn't work). Now (slowly) installing...

    If you ever get in that situation again, there's a nifty app (used by many) that will identify old drivers and safely delete them.

    Thank you Rafaboss, renaming the iastorA.sys file worked for me, allowed the 1903 update without further hassle. Thanks!

    I upgraded my Dell XPS laptop to v1903 using a Media Creation Tool generated USB flash drive. Apparently there are no checks in that method so it installed without issue. My Dell has an old version of RST. Although I have not used the laptop a lot since the upgrade, I experienced no issues using it. The other problem is that the Dell Support site does not have a much newer version of RST than what I already have. If Dell comes out with a newer version, I will update it.

    And why you still get the error message is probably similar to the issue blocking upgrading with a USB flash drive. Even after fixing the underlying issue in v1903 itself, MS failed to remove the block in the installation process until well over a month later. So it is probably a glitch.

    We really don`t even need it, other than powering down your other drives, it really doesn`t do much.

    I just uninstalled it from my Z170 and I see/feel no difference.
