We suggest that you test and use Intel® Rapid Storage Technology as Intel® Matrix Storage Manager is a mature application that has been discontinued.

Thank you very much for replying, Diego.
However, the problem continues regardless whether it is MSC or RST..........
I have an ASUS P5E mobo with an Intel CORE 2 duo E6850 CPU
The chipset is Intel X48 Express which includes the 82801 IR I/O controller (ICH9R)
There are two 250GB SATA drives connected
The O/S is WinXP Pro (32bit) SP2
Why do I get this error message:
“The computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software”
when I try to update the Matrix Storage Console or try to install Rapid Storage Tech???
You should know that this exact system operated as a RAID1 for 4½ years before one drive became “degraded”. It met the minimum requirements then, so why is there a problem now?
Message was edited by: hawkeye52 Further research indicates that my X48 chipset does not support RST, so that is moot.
Try using Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology 11.2 instead as 11.6 may not be compatible for your system.
Thanks again, Diego --- but 11.2 is what I have tried to install.
Diego, to my great surprise, your most recent suggestion did the trick; I now have MSC again!
After umpteen tries, I had resigned myself to live with only the Matrix Storage Manager (MSM).
Thank you for your persistence.
