Im trying to set up SSD Caching, I have a z77 chipset, win 8.1 pro installed with RAID on a HDD, with a SSD not being used.

Problem is, I can open The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology software fine, But when I click on Manage along the top it comes up saying IAStorUI has stopped working, then closes.?

Also on the status screen it just shows "ATAPI device" which is the HDD, not other devices?

I've tired lots of things but cant fix the problem! any ideas?

Hello JPLord, for this behavior these are the recommendation we can provide you:

  • The SSD needs to be installed on SATA 0.

 

  • Check if the motherboard needs a BIOS update.

Hi, thanks for this I have made some progress, does RAID have to be 0,1,5 or 10?

Those are the different types of RAID that you can create.

Here is the user guide for the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology and some additional information about each RAID array.
