There is no create button in Intel Rapid Storage Technology to be able to create a RAID 0.
Laptop came with Windows 10 Pro and the create button was there out of the box, but we need Enterprise Edition. After upgrading to Windows 10 Enterprise, I installed IRST and there is no create button. The drives are still set to RAID 0 but there is no way to manage it.
Ideally, I would like to have this work from an image that my company uses. When imaging the laptop, it re-partitions the drives and therefore no RAID 0.
Thanks in advance for any help!
Thank you for joining the community.
I looking into the in the Intel® RST report and I see that there is a RAID 0 that is built on the system using the hard drives using the hard drives plugged on your laptop
Array Name: SATA_Array_0000
Size: 1,953,524 MB
Available space: 3 MB
Number of volumes: 1
Volume member: Volume_0000
Number of array disks: 2
Array disk: 0000_0000_0000_0010_0008_0D02_0040_225D.
Array disk: 0000_0000_0000_0010_0008_0D02_0040_2270.
Disk data cache: Enabled
Volume name: Volume_0000
Type: RAID 0
Size: 1,953,520 MB
System volume: Yes
Data stripe size: 16 KB
Write-back cache: Off
Parity errors: 0
Blocks with media errors: 0
Physical sector size: 512 Bytes
Logical sector size: 512 Bytes
Looking to see if there is an update on how to create RAID 0 on the drive on this laptop. If no response soon, I will install Windows 10 Pro and create RAID 0 on the drives and then re-install Windows 10 Enterprise. Not the ideal way to handle this...
Thank you for your response.
I am looking into the reports and the information that you have provided, I am seeing that on your drive management picture that in your D drive you have tow system partitions (EFI system and recovery system), Intel® RST is probably not giving you the option to create the RAID 0 because it is detecting those partitions, now, the situation here is that if you delete those partitions on the D driver and they are related to the OS on the C drive you may damage your OS.
In case you want to proceed to create the RAID 0, I recommend creating a backup of the data on your system before taking any actions.
You can either try deleting the partitions on D drive to have the drive to unallocated space, or you can format both drives and reinstall the OS.
