Can´t enable drive acceleration

Hi

I wanted to accelerate my secondary hard drive with a 110GB SSD using IRST.

 

My OS is on a separate SSD.

But I don´t get the option the enable acceleration.

- I have enabled RAID in the BIOS and I have cleaned both the SSD and the HDD. (Updated the BIOS to a version of 4 april 2018)

 

- I formated the HDD and let the SSD unallocated (tried both MBR and GUID).

- I have tried leaving some space unallocated on the HDD qnd the systemdrive.

- I have tried low level formating the SSD.

My system specifications:

 

- Intel core i7 4790K

 

- Asus Maximus VII Impact (Z97 chipset)

 

- 3TB Seagate Baracuda HDD

 

- 240GB Samsung 840 evo SSD (OS)

- 110GB Kingston SSD

- Windows 10 Pro 64bit (clean install)

Is there any way to be able to accelerate my HDD?

Thank you in advance,

Ruben

Hello Rubeke,

 

Thank you for contacting us.

 

I understand that you are experiencing issues enabling hardware acceleration in your HDD using Intel® Rapid Storage (Intel® RST).

 

In order for me to assist you better, please provide me with the .txt file that the System Support Utility will generate. To attach a file, you must click the "Attach" option on the bottom right-hand corner of the response box.

As well, can you please provide us with the RST version that you are using?

 

I hope to hear from you soon.

 

Best Regards,

Hello Rubeke,

 

Thank you for your response.

 

In this case, the SSU report did not revealed anything out of usual.

 

Can you please attach to us a report generated by Intel® Rapid Storage Technology?

 

You will find all the instructions here:

As well, can you send us a screenshot from disk management?

 

I hope to hear from you soon.

 

Best Regards,

Here are the systemreport from IRST and the screenshot from disk management. Disk 'Schijf 0' is in this case MBR and the other two 'Schijf 1' and 'Schijf 2' GPT.

Hello Rubeke,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

In this case, based on your report, we noticed that you are running 16.0.2.1086, which is not compatible with the chipset that you own.

 

Please go ahead and uninstall it and then install the latest version for your chipset, optimized by your OEM (Version 14.5.0.1081&13.1.0.1058) found on the following link under the SATA option:

 

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VII_IMPACT/HelpDesk_Download/ https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/MAXIMUS_VII_IMPACT/HelpDesk_Download/

 

As well, the acceleration will be only available if you accelerate 'Schijf 2' (3 TB HDD) with the 'Schij0' (SSD) since you can only accelerate an HDD with an SSD (not SSD to SSD)

 

If you have troubles, please un-allocate 5 MB from the 'Schijf 2' since it needs a minimum of 5MB to install automatic files from the software.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Best regards.

 

Diego S.

I didn't think of that…

 

It solved the problem, I can now use acceleration.

Thank you very much,
