Why are you turning on RAID mode? In that setup, RAID isn't needed, as far as I know.



I freaking need to know the exact way to fo this

wait do you have it set to boot from the SSD with the OS on it?

Why are you going into the RAID menu?

And what do you mean by reset the CPU?

For the BOOT on the SSD with the OS im okay... window seven work perfectly... it's just the accelerate disk that dosen't work.
Did I have to make a partition on the HDD while instaling my OS on my SSD ?? Because after installing window on my SSD
I cannot see any device from the computer menu in window :O
What people seem to said to me is before intalling the OS on my SSD, I have to disconnecte my HDD and my second SSD for the caching memory.

After the OS instalation to connect both... but how can I see them ??

Is it wrong ?? And for the RAID I dont know LOL, I'll try right now to but it on normal

I'm a newbie Y_Y

Reset the CPU is reseting the computer... just a simple restart... sorry I'm french :O

So you set up the acceleration, but you cant see the drives under computer?

Go to disk management and format the array to make the volume and assign it a drive letter.

What happen is... in raid mode, in the RST utility I succefull accelerate my HDD with my second SDD... but when I reboot their no conection anymore

In the CTRL-I menu it said to me that the cache device is not there... after in the OS in the RST management my SSD still in acceleration
and the color is green (sooo basicaly my SSD is use to accelerate). It's my HDD who seem to have a probleme, the color is yellow with an ! and when I click
to manage it I have to clear it.

Can you try uninstalling the Intel RST drvier, do a quick format on HDD and the SSD, then re-install the driver and try again? And not mess with anything in teh BIOS.

BTW, what SSDs do you have? And are the firmwares uptodate?

edit" can you use a different sata cable on the HDD and have both the SSD and the HDD in teh SATA2 ports?

Well to completely wipe the drives and begin a new you can do this:
  1. Open the Start Menu, type diskpart, press Enter
  2. Type list disk, press Enter
  3. Type select disk X (where X is the number your drive shows up as), press Enter
  4. Type clean, press Enter
  5. Type create partition primary, press Enter
  6. Type active, press Enter
  7. Type format quick fs=ntfs, press Enter
  8. Type assign, press Enter
  9. Type exit, press Enter

It will completely erase the info on the drive. It wipes all the partitions.

I'll help more tomorrow, I have to sleep now and class in a few hours. mad.gif lol
