U510 won't boot after installing Intel Rapid Storage Technology

I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 on my U510 after some virus/malware destroyed the boot record. After doing so I attempt to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology and after rebooting  Windows launches its repair functionality. It runs for several minutes and is unable to repair and I can't get to the OS. Any ideas? I've subsequently re-installed Windows 7 and have not attempted another install of that software. Isn't this software necessary to take advantage of the SSD and swapping between the HDD and SDD? Thanks in advance!

Take a look at this thread.

IRST only manages storage. You will need the software mentioned in that thread in post 2, but just check since that thread is for U530.

Re: U510 won't boot after installing Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Thanks rockykoston! I did check that link and that ExpressCache software doesn't appear to be supported on a U510. At least it wasn't listed. If that was required, I wonder why Lenovo doesn't include that in their list of drivers for the U510. Weird. I'll have to look into that further.
