Hello Dumello, thanks for joining the chipset community.
I would like to inform you that RST support these operating systems Windows Server 2008 * and 2012, Windows 7 *, 8* and 8.1*. Windows 10 is not on the list.
So that could be the reason why you are not seeing the tab on the software.
Please access the following link and click on “read me”. You will be able to find the system requirements Intel® Download Center
I would recommend you install one of the supported operating systems and let me know if it works.
I have been continuing to try to get this working with no success. I have now tried Windows 8.1, which is the version that the attached screen captures are from. I currently have the SSD drive connected to one of the grey SATA III ports and the HD is connected to one of the blue ports, because it is a SATA II drive. I have tried with both connected to grey ports in other attempts. This shouldn't make a difference, right, since both drives are showing up in the RST panel?
I'm open to any suggestions you may have and can try with any version of Windows you want. I'd prefer the Windows 10 Tech Preview, but let's see if we can get it working on a supported platform first to identify the issue. I have gotten pretty good at getting the install done quickly!
Thank you, again.
Dumello, would you please try with Windows 8.
Please check the System Requirements on this link: http://download.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/intel_smart_response_technology_user_guide_3.pdf
Let me know the results.
Hi, sorry, I've been out-of-pocket and haven't been able to look at this problem or respond. I'm about to get back into it, but think I may have identified the problem. Please confirm.
I have the Z77 chipset and 1155 package CPU, but it's a Xeon E3-1245 V2 processor. The requirements at the link you provided specify an Intel® Core™ Processor in the LGA1155 or LGA1150 package. I'm guessing that is my problem.
I will not proceed with a Windows 8 install until you tell me that my CPU is compatible.
btw, I did provide that information in my original post. Also, I just looked at my Asus P8Z77 WS motherboard manual.
Intel Smart Response Technology
SSD Speed with HDD Capacity
Intel Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance. It uses...blah, blah, blah.
*Intel Smart Response Technology is supported by 2nd/3rd generation Intel Core processor family on Windows 7 operating systems.
So, according to my manual it should be supported with my CPU. What is the definitive answer please? I'd like to get it working, but I don't want to have to reconfigure and reinstall my OS unless we have some confidence that we will get it working.
