The Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) may cause stability problems, and could potentially break an in-box storage driver.

In a new support document, Microsoft documented a critical problem in devices with Intel Rapid Storage Driver versions between 15.1.0.1002 and 15.5.2.1053.

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).

Those with affected drivers installed will not see the Windows 10 version 1903 update on the Windows Update page.  Additionally, an upgrade block message will appear on Update Assistant Tool.

Versions 15.5.2.1054 or later are compatible, so devices with these drivers installed can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.  Microsoft suggests that affected devices use version 15.9.6.1044.

Here’s what Microsoft recommends:

To resolve this issue, you will need to update the Intel® RST drivers for your device to version 15.5.2.1054 or a later.  Check with your device manufacturer (OEM) to see if an updated driver is available and install it. You can also download the latest Intel® RST drivers directly from Intel at Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) User Interface and Driver.

Once your drivers are updated, restart your computer and check for the May 2019 update again.
