The Intel® Chipset Z77 integrates PCH controller, this is a desktop chipset compatible with the latest Intel® Rapid Storage 14.8

You are kidding, right? Dont you really know whats in your packages? Where is the 7-series-driver for my GA-Z77X-UD5H in the latest Intel® Rapid Storage 14.8 package? I cant find it. Is it invisible? There is 6th generation, 8 series, 9 series and 100 series but unfortunately no 7-series! Take a look if you still not believe:
And if I run the setupRST (yes with adminrights!): Not compatible!
Hey Intel, Im still waiting on a Windows-10 AHCI driver for my Z77-system I bought in 2014! And Im not the only one with this problem.
Thanks for the clarification, I had based my answer on the driver readme file that shows Intel® 7 series as supported but I understand that this is not available.
The version 12.9 provides support for Intel® 7 series but might not be compatible for Windows® 10: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23496/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver?product=55005
I will research on this matter becuase the only version available with Windows® 10 support is 14.8.
I was reviewing this case since I was waiting for final resolution from our engineering department.
I wanted to know if you still need assistance with Intel® Rapid Storage.
Were you able to load the latest Intel® Rapid Storage?
Also, you may need to update to the latest INF file by following the -overall installation mode
Please let me know your findings.
Hi, i'm having the same issue and couldn't find a 14. version of RST that has drivers for Z77. This is problematic because Windows 10's drivers display my hard drives as Safe to remove.
I've checked the 188.8.131.523 version and the readme says that the driver should work for intel 7 series/C216. But it doesn't and the .inf files don't have a clue about 7 series.
I'm sure that if i could look in the files and see they are missing your colleagues should have no issue fixing this.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I will check on this matter and will get back to you as soon as I get driver compatibility information for the Intel® 7 series chipset and Intel® Rapid Storage.
Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for your patience.
I just checked this information and I regret to inform you that there is no compatible Intel® Rapid Storage driver for the Intel® 7 series chipset and Windows® 10.
The latest Intel® Rapid Storage driver version for your chipset is 12.8. See the list of supported operating systems for this driver on the link below:
I was ready to accept your answer but some things were not right and started nagging me.
If 12.8 is the last supported version:
- why did i have 13.1 installed and working
- why did 6 series, which is older, have support until 184.108.40.2063, at least in the readme files
- does Intel really only support their hardware for 2 years since launch?
Either the read me files are inaccurate or the drivers are named badly. And i hope it's the later as having only 2 years of driver support is a disappointing prospect.
It also doesn't help that you have 6 series (Sandy Bridge) and 6th generation (Skylake), 7 series (Ivy Bridge) and 7th generation (Kabylake).
One more thing i would like to point out to future readers is that RTS brached at some point into 14 and 15, the later updating only Skylake and Kabylake while "For Intel Platforms not supported above, visit the RAID version 14.8.0."
I've installed 220.127.116.113 RTS for my Z77 Extreme 4 by manually updating the drivers to 8 series (not the C230 one). For the moment it seems to be working best, even removing an error i had in event viewer.
I'll come back if any issues appear.
Thank you, Allan.
Edit: Went back to 13.1. seeing as with 14.8 all drives showed up in the Safely Remove after a couple of restarts. It is the latest one with 7 series (Ivy Bridge) support.
