Hello, today i bought Nitro An17-71 with intel i7 13700HX , RTX 4060
and 1TB ssd. When i plug usb installation with Windows 11 i need drivers
to find SSD. I`ve used IRST Driver from my laptop`s download
driver page on acer website, but then installation reads those drivers
as old and not supported.

Any suggestions ? Thanks

    I extracted chipset archive on usb and found some drivers in the folder, but again i cant find the driver i need. There is no vmd driver or rapid storage driver. From there my installation cant continue. Do i need another bios settings for this?

    Ps : on Linux installation i find the ssd and i can install without problem

  • Does this driver not work?

    The new Nitro AN17-71 Win-11 operating system preinstalled by Acer should be perfectly operational on your new laptop, why do you want to reinstall Win-11 on a NEW laptop? That is crazy that you need to use the IRST (Intel® Rapid Storage Technology) Driver 19.5.1.1040 and reinstall Win-11 so soon!

    The IRST driver works 100% to recognize a Deleted or Formatted M.2 SSD boot drive when you reach the Win-11 installation section at the section of > Where do you want to install Windows > Load driver > as you NEED to first delete the boot drive and its partitions completely and start a fresh installation onto the boot M.2 SSD drive, and then install the IRST driver, as you will NOT have so many options to install IRST driver, like your caption shows below:

    As your IRST driver options above is crazy long and should not be like that! You are doing it all wrong and that is why you are getting so many options at the Load driver with IRST and you are getting confused and can't proceed to install Win-11, as you should only have max 3x options of IRST drivers to install. Do what I've suggested as then you will be able to install the IRST driver for the AN17-71 and proceed with the Win-11 installation. Good luck and hope this helps you out.👍
