1. Known Issue is defined as a potential RST issue that has been replicated internally by the Rapid Storage Technology team but has not been root caused to be an RST defect.
2. The RAID OROM & UEFI version for this release is 126.96.36.1991, the driver and user interface version is 188.8.131.521. The Devslp tool is posted under the CLI tool components on VIP kit.
3. RST 14.5 release enables support for new platforms & features (includes legacy support for platforms and features supported in RST 14.0)

4. For recommendation on Windows 10 upgrade scenarios, please refer the 14.5 OEM technical guide posted along with this kit
5. When RTD3 is enabled in BIOS, unable to create a RAID volume in UI or RST CLI. UI will report an error and volume will not be created. Bug affects Win8.1, BDW & SKL platforms. Unable to reproduce on Win10.
Workaround: Disable RTD3 in BIOS, then create desired RAID configuration in UI and afterwards re-enable RTD3 (or) to create RAID volume directly in BIOS/EFI. Fix will be available in future BIOS releases.
6. CAT error observed during OS install on RVP3 C0 (PCH-LP) with PCIe storage.
Workaround: In RVP BIOS, go to Intel Advanced Menu -> PCH-IO configuration -> PCI Express Configuration -> PCI Express Root Port 5 -> PCIE5 CLKREQ Mapping Override: enabled. CLKREQ Number: 
7. Issue related to RAID sku detection fixed in 184.108.40.2061 OROM. Customers might run into issues related to enabling RAID mode on some of the Skylake sku’s with previous pre-OS version
8. No RST support for PCIe storage devices in AHCI mode.

About SATA / AHCI / RAID Preinstall Drivers:
Download this package if you intend to switch the SATA settings between available modes (AHCI, RAID, or IDE) after an operating system has been installed.
Remember that if you modify these settings without applying the proper files, the OS will not be able to boot until requirements are met or changes are reverted.
As for the installation method, it would be best if you refer to the manufacturer’s update guide, read all the steps, and initiate this task only when you have completely familiarized yourself with the procedure.
Even though other platforms might also be compatible with this release, we strongly recommend that you apply the driver only on specified operating systems in order to successfully perform the installation. If a failure occurs, the computer could suffer serious malfunctions.
With these in mind, if you wish to modify the SATA settings according to the mode highlighted in this version, click the download button and make the desired changes. Visit our website as often as possible to stay up to date with the latest releases.
