Y480 - Enabling Acceleration In Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Hi,

 

I have a Y480 and I have added an mSata drive in order to use caching to boost performance. The drive is working fine, but I can't figure out how to enable caching in Intel RST.

I think I need to enable RAID in the bios to use RST, but I can't find the option anywhere.

 

Please Help.

 

Thanks,

ANkh

Hi Countrywise,

 

That's a great resource, thank you.

 

You wouldn't happen to know how to turn the SATA chipset in the Y480 bios to RAID mode, would you?

 

Thanks,

ANkh

 When I look in my BIOS configuration I only see this:

Is there a way to access an advanced bios?

Could it be that you need to have RapidDrive Installed?

RapidDrive sounds interesting, but it didn't come pre-installed on my laptop. Where would I get it from?

Re: Y480 - Enabling Acceleration In Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Pls lemme know how it goes, I have never used it but have heard that's what you need to get the mSATA to cache properly.

 

Please use it carefully

Re: Y480 - Enabling Acceleration In Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Well I imaged the laptop, and installed the RapidDrive tool. I can't see any sign of RapidDrive on the laptop after installation.

 

How do you use it normally?
