Hi.

 

New laptop Dell 14z came with W8.

Had a headache trying to downgrade to W7 but managed it now.

 

How do I set the mSATA drive as cache?

 

I installed W7 to main 500gb BIOS setting set to RAID/Intel Smart Response.

After install I loaded up Rapid Storage Technology but it doesn't give me the option to "Accelerate" as per configuration instructions.

 

Do I need to bundle the RST drivers into the W7 installation disk?

 

Thanks

Thanks.

 

Hmm. This talks about installing WIN onto the SSD.

 

I want to use the SSD as a cache drive.

Sorry for the delay, I understand it is addressing Installing Windows, the important part of the thread is deleting the Metadata so the mSATA is clean.
