I'm having a problem with Sony Vaio Ultrabook model with Intel Rapid Storage. Sometimes a have to format these ultrabooks, for example, when they fail to boot Windows 7 and I can't recover it. The problem is that I can't find a way to disable it without Windows. Unlike Dell or others vendors, there isn't a BIOS option or hotkey to disable it before system boot.
I use norton ghost to restore images, so what I'm doing:
1. Use windows 7 install disk with F6 key to add Intel Rapid drivers;
2. Format it;
3. Install intel rapid software and disable acceleration;
4. Restore image with norton ghost.
Googled the net for a solution but I can't find similar problem. Could you help me?
Thanks in advance.
