[SOLVED]Intel Rapid Storage Technology problem with SSD caching

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to enable SSD Caching on my newly built MSI z68 mobo. I installed the proper AHCI drivers then went into the BIOS and enabled AHCI.

I then installed Intel Rapid Storage and the following appears:
Intel-Rapid-Storage.jpg

There is no "accelerate" option like shown on Tom's:
intel-z68-express,B-5-284225-3.jpg
Following this
How do I get this option to show up?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Solved:You MUST uninstall the IRST software first before you follow the guide. No need to re-install the OS as some guides have stated.

I recommend renaming your thread to something like "Intel Rapid Storage Technology problem with SSD caching"

The purpose would be to make sure that anyone who sees this thread title instantly knows that you need help specifically with SSD Caching.

Are you using the latest BIOS for your board? Most z68 boards did not ship with a BIOS that did SSD caching out of the box. Also, do you have RAID enabled in BIOS before installing windows. Gigabyte has a utility that sets up RST, not sure if it works with other board makes. Asrock has a more comprehensive set of instructions than Toms. See if I can't find it for a fellow Yorker. wink.gif

Try those instructions.

The very guide you linked to explicitly states that you need to be in RAID mode, not just AHCI mode.

Remove IRST, install the RAID driver, then enable RAID in the BIOS, and reinstall IRST.

Yeah, older Intel RAID ROMs don't have caching support, so a BIOS update may be needed.

I have tried both RAID and AHCI. But I did not uninstall/re-install IRST. Will try that. Thanks!
