    Enable Smart Response Technology with an Intel SSD

    dalexgray

      I thought this would be a cake walk with an Intel SSD but I can't seem to get Intel Rapid Storage Technology to display the accelerate option.

       

      I have a 40 GB Intel SSD with latest firmware and a 2 TB HD with my system on it.  System HD is on port 0 and the SSD is on port 1.

      Here's my hard drive configuration in my BIOS.

      The SSD is all unallocated space.

       

      When I open Intel Rapid Storage Technology I see buttons for "Status," "Manage," "Performance," "Preferences," and "Help."  I don't see a button for "Accelerate"

      Working my way through help eventually brought me to these forums.  I must be overlooking something.  Can someone help me get my SSD working with Smart Response Technology?

            Thanks for listing the requirements!  I don't meet them as I'm using a P67 motherboard and Windows 10.  Whoops!
