ReadyDrive (Intel Turbo Memory) - can't enable

Hi!

I have problem with ReadyDrive - I can't enable it. In Intel Turbo Memory Console I can fill checkbox, but after reboot nothing happens and ReadyDrive is still disabled. I tried many different ways to workaround this problem - downgrading BIOS, using older drivers, reinstalling system. With no luck. ReadyBoost is working. SATA is of course in AHCI mode.

The another problem is that on boot (after bios, before loading Vista) system stop for around 30-45sec and wait.. wait for nothing.

The problem started some months ago - before everything was working good. Then if syste crash I can see some sing like "Recovering after blabla..." - this was from Intel Turbo Memory information, that system is recovering flash memory. Now it is gone.

My ThinkPad specification: T61p with Hitachi 7k320 drive, Intel Turbo Memory 1GB.

Best regards,
Dawid

PS Sorry for my bad english!

I was never able to enable ReadyDrive on my T61 14in... I have added a 2gig flash.... like you said, ReadyBoost works (but I see no gain in it system performs the same without it)

Ok, no solution from service. They said, that card is fault and they can't exchange it (out of stock?), so I will have money back. I think, that all people having same issue have it broken.

 

Best regards,

Consider the version of iastor.sys that might have 9installed after your crash recovery. Those prior to 8.9.2.1002 will break windows in several ways, Some like 9.6.0.1014 (not from Lenovo) will disable ReadyDrive.

Which one yoy have?
