I recently went through some issues with my computer which prompted me to start fresh with a new Windows install. I received a recovery disk from Lenovo, and went through the reinstallation process. I've had some issues with reinstalling drivers, but most of them are working fine. My main issue however, is with the Rapid Boot technology and the Rapid Storage technology.
I ordered the Y580 that came with a 32 GB SSD for cache. As far as I am aware, the disk is not currently being used for cache. If it is, it is an incredibly slow SSD (which it's not, it was blazing fast before the windows reinstall). Does anyone have any advice of how I can set up the SSD to be used as cache using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology utility? Some people have suggested that a RAID configuration is necessary, but as has been stated on other threads, there is no option for it in the BIOS, even on a laptop where it should be an option.
In regards to the Rapid Boot Technology, when I try to run the setup program, it says "this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software" which is ridiculous considering it was previously installed on the computer. I'm currently booting in at a sluggish 50 - 60 seconds whereas I was booting in 15 - 20 seconds before the reinstall.
I am not particularly knowledgeable about computers, so I don't even know where to start.

<p>Dont reinstal OKR. Repair buttont with option 3. Reinstalling will remove current backup also.
