In a support document, Microsoft documented a critical problem in devices with Intel Rapid Storage Driver versions between 22.214.171.1242 and 126.96.36.1993. The issue is limited to specific Intel drivers and other devices with RST. As a result, installation is being blocked on versions of Intel with Rapid Storage Technology (RST).
Microsoft recently updated the support document, in which the company said that a fix for the Windows 10 Update block issue is underway and that they will issues it by the end of this month. “We are working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in late August,” the support document reads.
But for the time being, users are suggested to install the latest version of the Intel RST drivers. Versions 188.8.131.524 or later are compatible, so devices with these drivers installed can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.
Some users also reported that they are still getting an error message while trying to install the May 2019 Update even after updating the Intel RST driver to the latest version.
