I want to speedup my Lenovo X220.
Don't want to reinstall all in a new SSD for costs and opportunity reasons (I haven't a MS Win7 installer DVD was installed OEM).
So better option it's just add some small mSATA SSD such as 40-60GB and use it as HDD cache.
Problem is what can I use?
Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT) can be the solution, but I can't find if will work or not with my chipset.
Intel declare work only on Z68 or 77 chipset, but also SSD 311 appear to be working with QM67 in some Intel portals (UK) and not in others.
Lenovo allow to download the driver for Intel Rapid Storage Technology (SRT) for QM67, SRT it's part of RST, but can't understand if that will automatically enable it in my system.
Please can someone give me advice?
You can see the Intel® Smart Response technology requirements here:
From there, the QM77 controller is not validated for this feature, hence it will not be available.
What you may do would be to use an Intel(R) SSD and use the Intel(R) Data Migration Software to move the information on your old hard drive to the new SSD:
If you would like to have more information and support for such feature, please create a new thread on its respective community at:
