Are you using a Pentium or Celeron??? RST requires a Core i3/5/7 CPU.
Intel core i5 2500k.
damn... I can't think of anything else. You'd better email Asrock about this.
You have to put the SSD into a RAID array by itself. You should be able to configure "RAID-0 with 1 disk" as odd as it sounds. It needs to be in an array for it to be available for caching from what I've read.
Maybe this will help, it is what I came across when I googled it: http://www.pcworld.com/article/248828/how_to_setup_intel_smart_response_ssd_caching_technology.html
Will I loose my data on the hard drive?
On the physical, rotational-media drive? No. Anything on the SSD will be lost, because that is what you're putting into an array. You can't use the SSD for anything else if you're going to use it as a HDD cache. Just don't add the rotational media drive to a RAID array or you will be missing data, but you shouldn't need to do that anyways.
Because of I tried to install an old version of drivers my system doesn't boot up anymore... Even in basic mode. If I put the new driver through Ubuntu can I solve the problem?
If it's not booting in safe mode either, use an Ubuntu LiveCD and backup your stuff. Try setting your SATA mode to IDE and see if that gets you in. If it still doesn't work, switch it to RAID and re-install Windows. You're not going to fix this easily and it will be a lot faster this way. You need to be able to get into Windows to change which drivers load. Just adding it isn't a good idea.
I believe your right.. It was available for me to do when i was setting up my 2 intel SSD's up for raiding i noticed i could of used a intel SSD for caching but did not bother as i don't see the point as the only time i have slower drives on the system is backing up stuff then there disconnected.
OCZ is connected on port 0 and the intels are on port 1&2
Now I can't boot. In BIOS I can't select the Seagate as boot... It is still to Intel 0.
Edit: when I select ahci I can select Seagate, but I think rst won't work.
Edit2: yeaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! I deleted the previously created raid drive, and I successfully enabled the acceleration!
I hope my experience will be useful to someone else. Thank u mates!
