You need apparently the Win8 version of drivers. Goto the Gigabyte support website and see if they have it. If not there or they don't provide a solution, then visit Intel support website. Verify what chipset you have on the mtrbd., then see if a Win8 versions is available. Under Win8, if *may* offer to go online and thus allow MS to supply whatever is needed. When that option becomes present, select it vs any disc or retrieved source.

The whole problem at times, older offering may lag until the makers or suppliers provide whatever is needed. Time goes by and later they do or don't. So, this is entirely out of your hands unless the above does work in finding Win8 versions.

I don't have your machine.
I can not install rst on this machine either.
Seems it gets upset that I only have a single disk non raid setup.

I did notice that the storage driver that comes with the chip set drivers was newer than what rst was trying to feed me.

Bottom line.
I just ignored single hd works fine.
