Yes, that is exactly how it should be done. Let me explain further:
- Open Intel® Rapid Storage Technology software, click Accelerate tab, click Stop Acceleration, and click reset to available. If needed, you can go to the Intel® RAID Option ROM by pressing Ctrl + I before Windows* starts and disable the acceleration there.
- When you are about create the RAID 1, make sure you open Intel® Rapid Storage Technology software in Windows* and create the RAID volume from there; this way you can keep the existing data from the older drive (as seen in pages 30-33). Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) — User Guides
- Enable Intel® Smart Response Technology. Chipset Software — Intel® Smart Response Technology User Guide
Thank you very much for your fast and helpful reply.
I wasn't sure whether the last step, recreating RAID 0, would be possible, so thanks for your advice. I'll post again when I have done the RAID migrations, hopefully successfully.
As easy as 1, 2, 3. I now have two 2TB HDDs in RAID 1 configuration. And this volume is accelerated using the 32 GB SSD in Raid 0.
I didn't need to use the Ctrl + I method. I could do it all with Intel RST in Windows.
Thank you for your advice, joe_intel.
