Rapid Storage Technology Question

I just bought an SSD so that I can use the Drive caching in the Rapid Storage Technology. Is there a way I can enable this without having to reinstall win7? I have tried to install the Rapids Storage Technology and I get a Fatal error during installation so the setup program stops.

Thanks

Steve

Hi Stevemtu,

I am sorry you are having problems with Intel® Rapid Storage Technology but let me help you.

It is important to mention there are some important and necessary requirements to have the acceleration feature in your system. Here you can check the requirements for this:

Make sure you have the Chipset mode set as RAID to do this purpose. I regret to say that if the Operating System has been installed as AHCI it will be necessary to reinstall the Operating System.
