I would say I am a veteran computer user, but don't know a ton about the BIOS etc.
I originally purchased an HP that had a 500GB HDD with a 32GB SSD for "acceleration". I recently swapped out the HDD for an SSD. The computer works much better except every time I boot, it wants me to launch the Intel Rapid Storage Technology configuration screen (if I don't launch it, my computer will crash). So I hit Ctrl+I to launch the configuration screen and exit immediately to get to Windows desktop.
Can anyone help me "configure" the IRST so that I do not need to launch this at every restart? I know nothing about RAID, acceleration, etc, but would like to find the best settings for my computer from a performance standpoint.
I have attached screenshots for anyone nice enough to help.
You need to switch off RST in notebook BIOS, i.e. select SATA controller mode as AHCI/non-RAID instead of current setting. Although if you just clone your Windows installation from HDD to SSD, the system 'remembered' RAID config and requires a RST to boot, so you need to reinstall Windows completely. BTW, you better to do it, because OS threats you SSD as RAID disk, ignoring TRIM and other SSD optimizations.
