Intel Smart Response Technology w/o Rapid Start Technology - Set-up, Install, Acceleration - Is it working??

Question: Intel Smart Response Technology w/o Rapid Start Technology - Set-up, Install, Acceleration - Is it working??

Upgraded to Windows 10 version 1511 build 10586.545 on Dell 15z 5523 and attempted to defragment c:/ drive (HDD). Noticed that both (c:/ - HDD & d:/ - SSD) drives were read as SSD so unable to Analyze or Defrag.
So, I attempted to install the latest drives from Intel site. Unfortunately, crashed my system. Required a new clean install.
Once new install, went to Dell site and installed SRT driver and Chipset drivers. Restart - checked bios - RAID drives and SRT enabled. Save & exit.
Went in to Cmd Prompt (Admin) - Diskprt - Clean. List Disk showed 2 drives both online with available space on both.
Went to Disk Management to initialize disk - Disk 2 setup - MBR style of partition.
Then on disk 0 (HDD) last partition chose “Shrink Volume…” from menu & shrank. Once completed, Extend Volume on disk 0 (HDD).
Ran SRT program - Enable Acceleration - selected total drive - Maximized Mode. Restart.
Finished.......but noticed the following.....


As you may have noticed, and my 2 questions - where is the 2nd drive (SSD) that is being used as cache - why is it not showing up in Device Manager, Diskpart, Disk Management and Defrag software??
Yet SRT shows everything working!!
And 2nd question why is Disk 0 type still showing as SSD??
BTW defrag last run shows a time b/c I defragged in Cmd Prompt - defrag c:/ u/v/.
Please note that I did not install Intel Rapid Start Technology b/c Intel no longer supports it & Windows 10 (Power Options - System settings) offers similar tech.
Therefore, using 2nd drive for cacheing only.
So ultimately, is SRT working?? How can I tell?? Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What's the difference? I own a Y580 and have been trying to get the start up time a lot faster after doing a clean install for Windows 8, and every time I install the software it makes no difference. I have heard that none of the Intel hard drive software is supported on the hm76 chipsets, and only Dataplex provides the software for this. I want to confirm this as well before deciding to purchase Dataplex.

Hi,
        I am trying to enable acceleration. I have a 500GB HDD and a 22GB SSD. Attached is a screen print of disk management.
 

        However when i go to Intel Rapid Storage Technology application and enable acceleration it does not select the disk i specify as the accelerated device. For the record i have only one disk which i am trying to accelerate. Attached is a screen print of the accelerate tab of irst as well.
 
        I received the laptop with Windows 8.1 and downgraded to Win 7. I have also followed the diskpart method suggested on other links in the forum multiple times but i end up with the same problem.
 
        Please advise.
 
Thank you.

Answer:Cannot Enable Acceleration using Intel Rapid Storage Technology

hi vinbad,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
May I know the Lenovo model that you're using (eg. IdeaPad U310 / U410 Touch)?
 
AFAIK, for units preloaded with Windows 8 / 8.1, these machines uses Expresscache for data caching.
 
Links and Guides:
- Reconfigure Expresscache
- Expresscache v1.3.110
- eccmd commands
 
If successful, typing eccmd -info on an elevated command prompt will give you this result:

Let me know how it goes.

Hi.....I just installed irst 10.6.0.1002 on a Gigabyte Z68 motherboard.I was running 10.5.0.1027 fine before this. Actually the system appears to be running fine at this new level driver.The problem I'm seeing is that after the irst service starts up I get a small irst error box saying I need to install 10.5.0 or higher;and I need to OK the message to make it go away.I beleive it's a false error detected in the service because 10.6.0.1002 is the latest and greatest.Has anyone seen this error or have a solution to it?
Thanks

Answer:Intel Smart Response Technology

Your system specs need to be more specific - Antec? Which antec?, Gigabyte? Which Z68 Gigabyte board?

Also can you post an image of the error code?

And I would use the latest drivers that are posted on Gigabyte's site - GIGABYTE - Support & Downloads

I've been trying to get Intel's Rapid start technology working for quite a while now -- I've downloaded all of the drivgers for my motherboard and etc, but I can't install the rapid start software because it tells me that "This Computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software".

At first I thought it was that my 950 Pro was not partition properly, but I've now followed Intel's instructions and created a 'Hibernate' or whatever partition for it, but that doesn't work. I've also currently got 16GB of storage unallocated on the SSD which is double the amount of RAM I currently have in my system because some people recommended unallocating some storage + a little bit extra.

Now that I've fiddled with that for quite a while, I double checked that it was enabled in the BIOS and found that it says "No Valid Partition" in the settings for Intel Rapid Start. I think this could possibly be due to the fact that I am using the 950 Pro through a PCI Adapter?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm really stuck and have been at this for hours.

Answer:Is Intel Rapid Start Technology of any use without an SSD?

Hey there lenssd9,
 
Because the Rapid Start Tech. require an SSD, but I don't think itreally will make a significant difference one way or another if you disable in BIOS. For addional information regarding this from Intel: http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/rapid_start_technology_user_guide.pdf
 
The hibernate and sleep modes are reliable/useful. A quick rundown from Microsoft on the differences:
 
Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player?the computer immediately stops what it?s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.
 
Hibernation is a  power-saving state designed primarily for laptops.  While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer.   Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.
 
Ultimately these modes are great for resuming work quickly, without having to do a fresh boot.
Hope this clears some things up. And Thank you lenssd9 for being a ... Read more

Hello harryoui,

Not sure if you are still looking for an answer?

There is a problem if you install the Intel Rapid Start technology before you create the partition. Reading your message it looks like this may be what you did. I would recommend uninstalling the Rapid start technology and then reinstalling so that it can detect the partition properly.

Hello, I am new on these forums. I am not completely computer literate, but I understand a decent amount to get me by. I came here specifically because I had some trouble with a re-format that was done one my hard drive. I had a friend (Who I thought knew what he was doing) reformat my hard drive. Well, unfortunately for me he did not and did a quick format with my hard drive plugged into another computer via USB, and it completely screwed my hard drive. So I did whatever and got my computer to recognize it once again made a new volume ect. Once that all happened I found that I am having some trouble as far as re-installing Intel Rapid Start Technology. My computer has a 32Gb SSD in it specifically for a caching process that I believe is used to make the boot up go so fast. My problem that I have come into is that the directions that dell gave me to put rapid start technology back on my computer is not possible for me to follow. I have a SATA AHCI hard drive that I dont think I can set to RAID mode and I cant get into the acceleration tab on the intel rapid storage technology mangment; simply because It does not exist for some reason.....If you need any further detail I will be more than happy to provide them to you... All I need is to know how to get my computer to boot up like it did when I bought it. I have a dell 17R SE

Answer:your system does not appear to have intel rapid start technology

Hi peterbai0624,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
The Intel Rapid Start Technology allows you to boot the PC faster after the computer wakes up from sleep. For this technology to work, the unit must have an SSD drive installed on the system. If this was previous working before and suddenly you get the error, it's possible that there's something wrong with the SSD/HDD configuration under BIOS.
 
If you can't access the BIOS by pressing Fn+f2, try to hold Fn while tapping F2 or hold F2 alone. When you get into the BIOS, try to follow this suggestion. If this doesn't work, but can still boot into Windows, try to:
 
1. Install:Intel Rapid Start Technology driver.
 
Intel Rapid Start Technology Driver0wff05w8.exe1.52MB
 
2. Follow the Intel Rapid Start Technology Installation Guide
 
 
Hope this helps.

During restart I experienced that the pc took much longer to start up, usually it takes less then 20 seconds. After startup the system telle me that it the Intel Rapid Start Technology no longer runs on the PC. I guess its why it takes so ling to start up now. But how do I restart the Intel Rapid Start Technology. I cant seem to find any programs that controls that part of my system?

Answer:Problem with Intel rapid start technology

hi rimfrozt,
 
If your Lenovo U410 comes with an SSD+HDD combo, check if the SATA Controller working mode is set to RAID and the Intel Rapid Start Technology Support to Enabled under the BIOS then try to reconfigure Intel Smart Response Technology for SSD caching.
 
If you have only an HDD drive, can you try to run an HDD diagnostic to determine the HDD's health as bad sectors on the drive will bog down the computer.
 
 
Hope this helps.

hi yzarate,
 
I'm sorry to hear what happened,
 
If the system is giving you a failed to start Option,  Restarting it May sometime give you option Like Safe mode,
       If you're getting that, select that option and it should be able to start you system while in RAID then restart the system again once booted back up.
 
If you're not getting that message I would suggest go back to BIOS
           go to the Exit TAB, Select Load optimized default or press F9 to load defaults, F10 to save and Exit and hit enter,
Try loading BIOS again and see if the configuration tab will be available,

Hi there,I have a brand new Lenovo E530 to which I added mSata SDD (64GB) which serves as my OS drive.Is there any point in installing ISRT for me? from what I understand ISRT is used for managing small SSD caches while my entire OS is installed on the SSD drive. What about the BIOS update which appears at Lenovo's web site? can upgrading the bios can do anygood for me? Thanks 

Answer:Do I need to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Hey there Slava,
 
To gain a little bit more clarity which are you exactly wanting to inquire about?
 
My understanding is that the Intel Smart Response Technology(ISRT) is caching feature of Intel Rapid Storage Technology(IRST). 
 
Additionally, this will want to use the SSD as a caching device, rather than a bootable drive, so your current setup with OS on the 64GB SSD may not work in this instance. I found this article interesting that may be useful to you in deciding the path you would like to take. Ultimately, evaluate what you will be using the machine for, will these utilities help drive better results for those activities?
 
To know what changes would impact with you a BIOS Update, do you know what version BIOS currently have? Reviewing the summary of changes can give you an idea of what impact you will see with each version. I hope this helps Slava.

Answer:Where to get the "Intel Rapid Start Technology" software for E330?

Unfortunately Andrej-S, it does not seem like there is any Intel Rapid Start support for windows 8 with your machine, it seems the last available was Windows 7. An alternative may be the ExpressCache. It can provide similar results as to the Rapid Start Technology. PlingPlong provides some excellent information regarding that option at this thread. Hopefully this is of some assistance to you.

Recently I upgraded my BIOS to the latest version: "F.63 for HP EliteBook Folio 9470m". The first thing catching my attention, when I was checking the BIOS, was the missing entry: Intel Rapid Start Technology (FFS). This removal seems the intention of HP, according to the product change notification (Document ID: c05143560). Unfortunately, I've seen this product change notification afterward. My question: ?What was the reason, for HP, to decide removing the Intel Rapid Start Technology (FFS) feature from the BIOS??  HP mentions, according the product change notification, the disappearance of the feature, however not why.  There must be a reason and I like to know. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Intel Rapid Start Technology (FFS) removed from BIOS.

@TheIngenieur? This is all I could find. Fixes an issue on a system running Intel Rapid Start Technology where the system stops functioning properly when the system resumes from standby mode.  NOTE:- After this updated BIOS is installed, older versions cannot be reinstalled.- After this BIOS is installed, the Intel Rapid Start Technology feature will not be supported.  REO

Along with this, "sleep" option doesn't work. So essentially can I just uninstall Intel Rapid Start Technology and all my problems will go away? There hasn't really been a solution posted and it feels like U310/U410 owners are out of luck.

Answer:Lenovo U410 - Intel Rapid Start Technology

hi Telstra,
 
Uninstalling the Intel Rapid Start Technology software should get rid of the "Intel Rapid Start Technology is not enabled' error and Windows will save the sleep/hibernation settings on the HDD - which is normally configured on the 32GB mSATA SSD (selected models).
 
If you have a malfunctioning mSATA SSD though, you may also wanna change these settings in the BIOS.
1. Set SATA Controller Mode from RAID to AHCI

2. Set iRST support to Disabled

Dear,

We have purchased a lot of Toshiba Tecra Z50-A laptops with a Hybrid HDD (with SSD cache).

The exact model:
TECRA Z50-A
PT544E-00D01TBT

We stage and re-partition the laptops via SCCM.
However, when installing all drivers and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology software, I see that only rge HDD is used and no SSD partition with Intel RST.

How can we enable this?
The problem is that the performance is incredibly bad.
The laptops are very slow even though the specs are good:
i5-4200U CPU
8GB RAM
Windows 7 x64

Any idea how to enable this Intel RST?
In the BIOS I can't find any options for RAID as this needs to be enabled for RST to work.

Thank you

Answer:Tecra Z50-A - Intel Rapid Storage Technology not working

So nobody has any idea?

Also no idea how I can enable RAID in BIOS?
I cannot find that option anywhere.

This is getting very annoying.
We have purchased 100+ laptops and they are very, very slow.

I guess we'll switch back because those work flawlessly.

One day I decided to check out this utility called Slimdriver that scans your PC to make sure it has up to date drivers. It offered to download and install 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' driver which I have never been offered by Windows update. Here is what is says about this driver,

"Intel« Rapid Storage Technology offers greater levels of performance, responsiveness, and expandability than ever before. Whether you are using one or multiple serial ATA (SATA) or PCIe drives, you can take advantage of enhanced performance and lower power consumption from the latest storage technologies. Additionally, you can rest easy knowing you have added protection against data loss in the event of a hard drive failure."

I've never used this driver in the past and it has a long startup delay so am wondering if it is good to have or not really necessary.
 

Answer:Do you install 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' driver?

I never install that. It creates another System Tray icon and doesn't appear to do anything useful. Would love to see if it actually helped with non-RAID systems.

Hello guys, Recently I Recieved A Laptop in gift which I owned in the past which is A Dell XPS 15-L521X. It was running all good but suddenly Today morning when I pressed the power button and it boot through the Dell splash screen and after that It booted normal through the Windows 8 boot screen but after that It stucked at a Black Screen.
I passed on 20-min but it stucked there. No Cursor, nothing except The Black Screen. I ran Dell Pre-Boot System Assesment to check any Hardware failware but no everything is just fine.
I remember That My Dell Driver Update Utility Notified me that it installed latest Intel Rapid Start Technology Driver on my last boot but I dont know whether its causing the error but The Intel Rapid Start Technology is very essential for SSD users so why will it cause errors? Please help me I am totally Screwed up......

I started having trouble a few days ago when my laptop crashed and on starting up, gave me an error message stating that 'Intel Rapid Start Technology is not enabled'. The system also began crashing everytime it went to sleep (and the start up took a bit longer than before). Each time I started the laptop up, the same error message popped up.  At one point during start up, a blue screen came up stating there was a 'Driver power state error' I've manually updated all my drivers just incase (didn't work). On trying to install the latest 'Intel Rapid Start Technology Driver', it fails, giving the error message: 'This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for insatlling the software'. I eventally uninstalled 'Intel Rapid Start Technology' (from the control panel) and the error message (first paragraph) stopped popping up. The laptop is still unable to sleep without crashing. Any ideas? Or should I wait around and hope the next round of updates sorts everything out? (any idea how lond that would take?)

Answer:Enable intel rapid start technology on Lenovo Z510

hi ebinscaria
 
You're right, the Seagate ST1000LM014 is a hybrid drive that uses a standard HDD with a built-in 8GB NAND flash memory as a cache. Unfortunately you can't use the 8GB built-in cache to enable Intel Rapid Storage Technology or Intel Rapid Start Technology as Windows will detect the hybrid drive as a single unit. The caching algorithm is also embedded on the drive's firmware.
 
To know if the SSHD's cache is being utilized, you should run a benchmark and compare its advertised speed (see these benchmark tests).
 
In addition, as per this article, a SSHD will function as normal Hard Drive when the SSD Cache wear out (or if not being utilized), thus, you will see poor results than its advertised speed when running a benchmark test.

The Lenovo driver list for the Yoga 2 11 includes Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) Driver for 64-bit Windows. However, attempting to install this results in the message, "No Appropriate Driver to be Installed". Likewise, attempting to install the Rapid Storage Technology driver from Intel's site results in the error, "The platform is not supported." Windows Device Manager shows WDC WD5000M22K-24Z1LT0-SSHD-16GB for the disk drive name, so it appears that the drive should support the RAID configuration for SSD caching. This is consistent with the specs for the laptop. Is it normal for the drivers to not install? It seems odd, given the placement on Lenovo's driver list. I'd like to set the Acceleration Mode to Maximized as described in Intel's User Guide.

Hello,

I have a problem with Autoplay not working on a DVD drive which I have traced to the installation of the Intel Rapid Storage driver.

This is on a new build computer (Asus Hero VIII) and the driver was installed from the motherboard support DVD.

When the installation of the drivers was started autoplay worked OK when the support DVD was inserted.

After that autoplay would not work.

After a lot of testing I discovered that it was the Intel rapid Storage drivers that were installed from the DVD that caused the problem.

When they were removed autoplay works OK.
When they are re-installed autoplay stops working again.

Question:

What is Intel Rapid Storage drivers used for ?

I have the following drives on my system:-

1. Samsung SM951 M2 AHCI 256GByte drive for Windows 7 Pro 64bit OS
2. SanDisk 256 GByte SSD
3. 2 off 2, TByte Seagate HD's
4. 2 off, Asus DRW-24F1MT DVD Re-writers.

I do not use RAID.

Do I need Intel Rapid Storage installed ?

Nick.

Hardware:
XPS 2720
2 TB HD
32 GB mSATA SSD

Software:
Windows 8.1

Issue:
Machine had Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) installed out of the box.  Cached acceleration was functioning normally.
HD suffered catastrophic failure and was replaced under warranty.  Dell support contractor installed a new HD, gave me a Windows 8 re-installation USB key, started the new install and hit the road.  After installing OS and updating windows (nothing like 160+ updates), I re-installed IRST (most current version from Dell for my Tag).
In IRST, there is no option to accelerate.  Both drives are visible in IRST, but the SSD has no volume assigned and does not appear in Explorer.  After reading forums, I was concerned that the prior cache may have left something on the mSATA drive.  Used Diskpart to clean the drive.  No change in IRST.  Applied a master boot record to the mSATA drive, but left it unallocated.  No change in IRST.
Checked BIOS (updated to latest version, A07).  BIOS was set to RAID.
Called Dell Tech Support.   A rep tried for about an hour to get it running (all sorts of BIOS checks, IRST uninstalls and reinstalls, basically a lot of what I tried).  He decided to send out a new mother board.

Answer:XPS 2720: After new hard drive cannot get Intel Rapid Storage Technology working again

The BIOS SATA operation should not be set to RAID. It should be set to Intel Smart Response Technology. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology won't be able to accelerate unless this SATA operation is selected. Likely your previous motherboard was fine.
You will need to reinstall Windows after altering the SATA operation within the Dell BIOS setup. See page 366 of my Windows Reinstallation Guide:
http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/
You can also set the SATA operation to AHCI and replace the mSATA cache drive with a 128 GB or superior Samsung 840 Evo:
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/uk/html/about/SSD840EVO.html
The price of these being far more economic then it was a year ago. In such a configuration you should install Windows directly on the SSD and this will lead to the best performance.
The 30 GB cache drive was an intermediate between OS installation on the HDD and OS installation on the SSD because high capacity SSDs were too expensive.
Note in either case when you change the SATA operation the system will not boot and you will need to clean install Windows again.

I have Dell Inspiron 14z 5423. Recently this ultrabook crashed and I had to fresh install windows 7. When I tried to install Win 7 then it didn't load any of the Hard disk. Someone suggested me to change the SATA mode to AHCI ( Previously it was set to  Intel Smart Response Technology Mode.). I installed win 7 with AHCI mode enabled ( but I also had to delete the whole 500 GB Hardisk unfortunately). The installation how ever was successful but the performance I think has been degraded. It used to boot so fast previously but Now it takes much time to boot and also battery performance has been reduced.

Now I again want to Re-install windows 7 with Intel Smart Response Technology Mode set in BIOS. Please help me with the detailed and step wise instruction for installing windows. Coz as I change the SATA mode to Intel Smart Response Technology Mode then it does'nt show the hard disks.
I would me much grateful If i receive the solution from the Official Dell Support Team. 

Answer:Installing Windows 7 with SATA mode set to Intel Smart Response Technology Mode.

Hi TusharKhatiwada,
You should be able to install Windows 7 with Intel Smart Response Technology mode. You may follow the steps below:

Please ensure SATA mode is set to Intel Smart Response Technology in BIOS
Go to RAID BIOS and disable accelerate option for SSD (Use Ctrl+I at ‘Dell’ logo)
Initiate OSRI
Install all the drivers including Intel Rapid Storage Software.

Now to ‘Accelerate’ the HDD using ISRT, you may follow the steps below:

Run the Intel RST software through the All Programs menu or the task bar icon.
Click ‘Enable acceleration’ under either the ‘Status’ or ‘Accelerate’ menu.
Select the SSD to be used as a cache device.
Select the size from the SSD to be allocated for the cache memory.
Select the drive (or RAID volume) to be accelerated. It is highly recommended to accelerate the system volume or system disk for maximum performance.
Select the acceleration mode. By default, Enhanced mode is selected.

Note: Enhanced mode: Acceleration is optimized for data protection.Maximized mode: Acceleration is optimized for input/output performance.

Click OK. The page refreshes and reports the new acceleration configuration in the Acceleration View. Your system is now successfully configured with the Intel Smart Response Technology.

Once this is done the SDD drive will not be visible in windows.
Hope this helps. Keep me posted with the findings.

Hello, I took delivery of my new ThinkPad X270 three days ago. It is a 20HN model, and it has the 512 GB Intel SSD, with Windows 10 Pro. One of the problems I am having with the machine is that it randomly freezes for a few seconds intermittently. I read on the Microsoft forum that one solution to this was to check of Intel Rapid Space Technology was installed. In my device manager, I noticed that Rapid Storage Technology was missing. Instead, only the Microsoft Storae Spaces Controller and Standard NVM Express Controller are visible. Then there are no IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in the device manager, either. I downloaded the driver for Intel RST from the Lenovo web site and installed it, but when I rebooted my systel the storage controllers were still the same Microsoft ones, and the Intel RST was still not showing in the Device Manager. I also re-installed the chipset software, but the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers didn't show up either. This was all on a clean install of Windows 10. I already tried using the native troubleshooter app on Windows 10 as well as running an SFC scan, neither of these fixed the problem. Coud someone advise what I should do to install Intel RST?

Hi all,
I have been successfully running Intel Smart Response Technology version 10.6.0.1002 on a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 board with a Core i3-2120 processor and Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I have a WD Caviar Black 1TB drive and an OCZ Agility3 60GB SSD with firmware 2.25. I recently upgraded the machine to a Caviar Black 2TB drive by cloning the drive using the Acronis WD edition clone tool. However, SRT refuses to start with the 2TB drive. The partitions all appear to be correctly created, and the drive does not have any physical problems (bad sectors) as it's brand new. I verified that it can accelerate another drive on the system (a Seagate 1TB), so it does not appear to be a software, driver, or configuration issue. I also swapped the 1TB drive back in and was able to accelerate it with no problems. I also tried the latest versions of the RST driver, up to the current one, and nothing I have done will get it to work. When it fails to configure with the newer versions of driver, it complains that the operation failed, but gives no suggestions. Sometimes it says to try restarting, sometimes not.

Answer:Smart Response Technology works with WD 1TB, not with 2TB

Just because a drive is new doesn't mean it doesn't have bad sectors, its a long shot but i would run a drive test on the hard drive before you go with the windows install.

Is it possible for me to install a new Z68 mobo. Use my existing HDD without reinstalling Windows, add a SSD and setup Smart Response Technology.

I would like to avoid reinstalling Windows if possible so that I may postpone purchasing another HDD for backup.

Answer:Advice with Z68 and Smart Response Technology

Hello Marshall,

Unfortunately since it's a different motherboard than what was used to originally install Windows with on that HDD, you'll most likely have to reinstall.

Yesterday I received my new Y510p from NewEgg. It includes a 1 TB hard drive and a 24 GB SSD. It comes with Windows 8, which I don't want to use. Therefore, I decided to clean the system completely and install Windows 7. I blanked both drives, switched the firmware to legacy mode, changed the "OS optimized defaults" setting to "Other OS," and performed a clean install of Windows 7. The Intel Smart Response drivers don't show any indication that acceleration is possible. Then I remembered that the controller mode must be set to RAID for this feature to work. However, the firmware lacks this option: the only choices are AHCI and "Compatible" (for IDE mode). How do I get RAID to appear here, so that I can configure SRT correctly? Or, is there some other way to get this working?













Solved!

Answer:Y510p and Smart Response Technology - can't enable

The Y510p does not use Intel SRT. It uses Expresscache for SSD caching. To see if expresscache is working properly, follow the link below:  http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=HT074404

Can anyone tell me if uninstalling the Intel Rapid Storage Techonology would cause issues with the CD/DVD? The system is recognizing it as it shows up when you view hte computer but programs can't access it. I have run the troubleshooter in Windows and it couldn't detect any problems. The only thing that has changed is that I have installed the Rapid Storage since it was causing my laptop to run slow and giving me errors. Since uninstalling, my laptop has performed nicely except for the CD rom now. I need to get this to working so I can burn some CDs. 

Answer:Intel Rapid Storage Technology & CD/DVD

Look for an update to the chipset drivers for your motherboard, see if there are any yellow or red "bangs" in the control panel. If none are present, and there are no issues with windows update then try reinstalling the Intel drivers.Good luck.

I built a new system for a relative using the H87-G43 MSI board. I have set up a SSD 64 GB to be used as a Caching disk using Intel's Rapid Storage Technology.

I followed the set up procedure which required a BIOS change to RAID Mode before the OS was installed. So I have one 500 GB drive that is accelerated and the 64 GB SSD that is being used as the caching drive.

No errors or BSOD's when booting, I had to enable the drive in the Intel console for this(it sees the drive just fine) to work. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology(Intel SRT) really improves boot times over just using the mechanical drive. It is not a performance issue I am having just a reporting issue I think.

The question I have is about how Windows is reporting the drives in Device manager and computer management.

Windows 7 shows the information below in bold.

In device manager only the 500 GB drive is shown and it is shown as a SCSI device.
In computer management only the 500 GB drive is shown.
Both drives are shown in the Intel management console for this technology.

The computer is running fine and zippy, I am just a bit concerned about the 500GB drive (SATA) being reported as SCSI. Funny I downloaded SPECCY and it shows it as a SCSI drive as well using a 40 pin cable.

Any help, thoughts, ideas, or experience with this technology that could enlighten me would be very helpful.

Thanks

I am following instructions on Intel website to replace the drives.  Part of the process involves starting the Rapid Storage software in Windows.
The problem I am having is that when I try to start the software in Windows I get an error message that says the software is already running and cannot be started again.

Please help. I have no idea what Intel Rapid Storage Technology is. I've heard it used in reference to RAID (which I have no idea what that is), but I have heard that it increases performance and battery life.

Problem is, sometimes my computer starts to glitch and the sound gets all distorted and things start to respond really slowly (especially games that use flash) and I'm sure it has something to do with the Rapid Storage Technology because every time I hear that distorted sound, the little Rapid Storage Tech balloon pops up and says something about detecting a port or deleting a port. And the only way to get my computer to start acting normally again is to restart it.

Any ideas?:confused

I have an Aspire S5, with a 128GB SSD. The SSD is seen in the laptop as two 64GB drives, and is configured in RAID0 as default. At one point the RAID failed, and I tried to factory reset but the laptop wouldn't get into the recovery-mode (pressing ALT+F10 and all variations of ALT/CTRL/F-buttons) so I reinstalled manually with a USB. In BIOS, both drives are seen as 64GB, but in Windows only the one drive I installed on is seen as 64GB, the other one is still seen as the RAID-drive (128GB). It's not usable since I have to format it first but I don't dare to do that. I can see that the recoverypartition is still on this, but since RAID0 being RAID0, I'm assuming that all data on this ghost-partition is not usable in any way. When starting the laptop I get the Intel Rapid Storage Technology prompt (press CTRL+I), and it's saying that the RAID has failed, listing both drives (partitions), one of them as a member and the other one (the one I reinstalled Windows on) not as a member. So I deleted that configuration and thought I'd recreate it and reinstall Windows again. But when I deleted the configuration I can no longer access Intel Rapid Storage Technology at all, the prompt never comes up! It just boots straight into Windows. Pressing CTRL+I at startup gives nothing, probably because IRST isn't loading at all... I'll assume that the recoverypartition is gone forever since I already reinstalled on one of the partitions, but I'd like to at least get RAID work...

I have a Studio XPS 9100 running Windows 7, that I purchased 5 years ago (Apr 2011).  I have painstakingly gone through to make sure everything is working perfectly (at this snapshot in time) and corrected the few problems I had.  I think I will upgrade to W10 in June. 
There is an app that was preinstalled by Dell, entitled "Intel Rapid Storage Technology".  Does anyone know if this will continue to function with W10?  If not, does that speed things up significantly, or is it not worth worrying about?

Answer:Will Intel Rapid Storage Technology work with W10

Clean install out of the box No nor will it work upgrade.
The reason is that the RST application requires DOTNET.
This has to be ADDED BACK to windows 7 8 10 via control panel, add features to windows, must be ONLINE as these "features" are downloaded from windows update.
Advanced format drives Require INTEL RST 9.6 or higher.
Larger than 2TB Drives requires a host bus adapter and or INTEL RST 10.1 or higher.
The problem is that newer and newer versions of RST DO NOT SUPPORT OLDER AND OLDER versions of INTEL ICH aka ICH 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.  The higher you go the lower versions drop support.
Version 9.6 may be max for your motherboard.
I am sure that by the time you get to INTEL RST version 11.7 that your ICH aka Sata controller is NOT supported.
Trying to install when the system is in ATA mode instead of AHCI OR if the version of ICH is not supported will error with not supported hardware.
The INTEL RST 9.6  F6 Drivers can be put on a USB Flash drive and when AHCI is enabled for Sata operation it will load the drivers and see the disk.  If you do not load RST 9.6 or higher it will not "see the drive" and will not install.  Advanced format 4k drives started arriving in 2011.  At this point ALL NEW Drives are advanced format.  If you have an ancient 120 gig , 80 gig drive it won't need the drivers.   Most 160 Gig, 320 gig , 500 gig etc are 4k Advanced format Drives.

Hi,

So over the past few weeks my laptop will freeze before sending me to a blue screen of death with the following message:

KERNEL_DATA_IMAGE_ERROR

It restarts itself and then loads up acts as if nothing has happened.

Looking at the 'Problem details' in the 'Action log' it says the issue is the 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver', and windows tells me there is a solution, but every time I try and look for one its stubborn and tells me it can't download it.

Here are the problem details:

Problem signature
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

Parameter 2: 0
Parameter 3: ffffe00137e174b0

Extra information about the problem
Bucket ID: 0x7a_0

Now I've tried updating the driver software, but Windows tells me I have the best one. Also I ran a memory diagnostic check, but that came back negative. And the crashes still keep happening. Sometimes when I'm watching a video online, sometimes when I have screen saver on.

If anyone could help me at all I would highly appreciate it. I don't know all the computer mumbo-jumbo, so if someone can explain it to me like they would a 10-year old* that'd be amazing.

*a 10-year old that hasn't written code or something.

I upgraded my desktop PC from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 last week. I have an Intel SSD system disk, a 2T hard drive for user files, an old 500Mb hard drive for miscellaneous backups and an external 2T USB hard drive for backups.

I had Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) application v 12.9.0.1001 under Windows 8.1 and this remains operational after the upgrade. My Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard has an Intel 7 Series SATA AHCI Controller.

Do I really need the IRST application or should I uninstall it? I've seen in other posts on the forum that the IRST software may be the cause of occasional slow logins I experience on my desktop PC and laptop (both have IRST software).
