Yes sir, It is an Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard LGA 1155 socket and an intel i5-3570. Specs show it as a Z77 chipset. I have two 1 terabyte HD's already running in Raid 1. I also have a spare 250 gb Samsung Solid State Drive.
Apparently I have Intel Rapid Store Technology available. I have a basic understanding of what Rapid Store can do. Windows 7 Pro.
The question is Will it work with an SSD feeding an existing Raid 1 array? How do I go about it?
Hoping it does not require a new install. Also running another OS (Linux) from a separate partition.
I may be over reaching.
Intel® Smart Response Technology will work with an existing RAID 1. We actually have a system here with such configuration.
However, we have not tested it when a Linux* operating system is installed in the same RAID 1 volume. You may certainly complete the steps given in the user guide and share your results.
Thank you for your time. Intel Rapid Store Technology is apparently running my Raid array and I have found that menu.
I am hoping either it will ignore the SSD cache on Linux or run OK. Will be a week or so before I have time to check that. I am using BootIt to run more than one OS on a computer. Been very interesting on a laptop. Will try it on this new computer.
AGAIN, thank you for looking into this.
