I have the same problem, only when I try to install new drivers there is an error message that says "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software."
When I try to double click the icon a program called "IAstorUI" launches and then immediatly crashes "IAstorUI stopped working".
I do not know how to fix this. That icon with the error message "Intel RST service is not running" has been there for several months now. Any help would be strongly appreciated.
i'm italian too.
just bought an asrock z68 extreme 4 + intel core i7 2600k + gskill sniper 2x4gb cas 7 + hd wd 1tb faex on sata 1.
it's impossible to install intel rst (last version and the one before): "this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software"
i have bios 1.50, version of rst is that for win 7 64 bit, i have win 7 ultimate 64 regularly updated.
what can i do?
let me know
thanx ciao :-)
I don't know what being Italian has to do with it. But that statement did turn on a light.
One prerequisite of a lot of software that falls under the "minimum requirement" is that it's used in a specific region or country. Make sure you meet those requirements. The error message is saying the minimum requirement to run the software is not being met. That can can mean the PC is not equipped with the necessary firmware, software or hardware. So the first thing you should do is find out what are the Minimum Requirements. You should be able to find that in the documentation.
ok i got a solution.
intel rst requires AHCI activated in uefi.
but i could't do it because AHCI was de-activated in registry. so system did'n boot with AHCI set in uefi.
so microsoft gives u a patch for registry: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976/it (in italian). that activates AHCI driver in registry.
1) u can activate AHCI in uefi (advanced-storage), passing from IDE to AHCI. system can boot now.
2) then u can install INTEL RST, because now it has all hardware requirements.
