Smart Response: cache and accelerated disks became "non-RAID", cannot boot into Windows

Jump to solution

Hello:

My desktop has a 3 TB drive accelerated by a 64 GB SSD. This morning, I was unable to boot into Windows; the big drive was not visible in the Configuration Utility. I made the cache disk non-RAID and restarted. Windows wouldn't boot again. At some point, I may have set the other drive to become non-RAID but I still cannot get back into Windows. Is there a way I can recreate the RAID structure needed to boot into Windows through the Configuration Utility? If so, what is the procedure? Thanks.

Turns out I accidentally wiped my partitions while messing around the Configuration Utility settings. For future reference, do not create new RAID volumes if an acceleration cache seems to stop working.

Hello BleuThree:

Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.

I am sorry to hear about this situation regarding the caching configuration you have.

When creating a new RAID yes the information in the disks would be erased since a format would be needed.

While proceeding with this procedure, you get prompt when the information is going to be deleted.
