Notes:  

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 14.0.0.2134, the driver and user interface version is 14.0.0.1143.

·     The Devslp tool is posted under the CLI tool components on VIP kit.

3.    RST 14.0 release enables support for new platforms & features (includes legacy support for platforms and features supported in RST 13.5)

·      Skylake mobile U/Y and desktop consumer chipset

·      Support for PCIe NVMe storage devices

·      Support for up to 3 PCIe storage devices

·      Support for RAID0/1/5 volumes with PCIe storage devices

·      Support for RTD3 on RAID volumes

·      RCRs in RST 14.0 Beta

              ·  Compliance with AHCI 1.3.1 Link Power Management specification (SIPM)

·   Devsleep tool

·   NVMe1.2 compliance

·         NVMe Security Send and Security Receive (no boot support)

·         NVMe Autonomous Power State Transitions

4. 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.    

5. 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: [1]

6.  Please refer RST 14.0 Technical Product Specification (doc#551977) on CDI for the detailed information regarding the new feature support targeted for 14.0.

7.  No RST support for PCIe storage devices in AHCI mode.
