    Is Intel Rapid Start Technology (IRST) beneficial for non Raid system?

    mhasnan

      I have a multi disk non-raid system. According to Intel, IRST can also improved performance of a single disk setup. So I assumed it will also help mine. However, when I instal IRST, it somehow automatically convert 2 of my disks into RAID0 setup. Reason why I said this is that 2 of my disks no longer appear in the File Explorer (Win8) and when I check in the Disk Management (window) it listed a RAID0 disk with the size exactly the same as the total of the 2 missing disk in File Explorer. Was it supposed to automatically convert two disks into raid0 ? If IRST is only for RAID system, then I might as well not instal it.  Hope someone can help/clarify. Thanks
