 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 15.5.0.2875, the driver and user interface version is 15.5.0.1051. For RAID configurations, it is recommended that both the pre-OS and RST OS driver components are updated. Please contact your CE for further details.

3.  There is a new component in Intel® Rapid Storage Technology package called Optane.zip which includes SetupOptaneMemory.exe. Please refer to OEM Technical Guide Section 6.2.2.2 for more details.

4.  This driver release can be used on KBL platform with RS2 OS and also on KBL-R platforms.

5.  Starting from RST 15.5 PV, latest version of OEM Technical Guide will be available on CDI.
