I'm curious to know why Intel RST is delay launched? I have no issues. Just wanted to know why it was designed that way. And whether there were any positive or negative effects if it was set to launch, not delayed?

  3. Change the Startup type to Automatic.

Hello Amy C.,

Thanks for the reply. You knid of answered my question. Essentially, there is no advantage in setting the RST to Automatic. Rather, there is an advantage in Delayed Start. Is that correct?
