    Hi I hope I'm posting this in the right place.

    I've recently bought my system, and I'm trying to get set up intel's ssd caching. Problem is, I had no idea the steps involved in activating this feature before I actually installed windows and various programs and games. Now after a few weeks of use, I'm not sure how to configure RAID now that I've got both disks filled with data. Do I need to erase everything and re-build the system from scratch? Also the software for the intel smart response doesn't seem to come with the disk, at least I can't find it anywhere on my system. Another problem is that do I absolutely need a floppy drive and disk to complete RAID configuration or is there some other way around it?


    But I feel so overwhelmed by these problems that I don't even know where to begin. If someone can help me wrap my head around these obstacles, then I'd be able to follow the intel user guide steps that is included with the asrock driver disk. I would really like to get this to work, because otherwise my 64 GB ssd is nearly useless.

    Currently my OS is installed on the SSD drive and everything else is located on the HDD.

    What I would like to accomplish is the following

    -set up raid
    -format the SSD drive (to allow full 60 gb cache use)
    -retain the data and programs on my HDD disk (although I can back some of it up, it would be ideal if I didn't have to delete anything)
    -reinstall windows onto my HDD
    -enable ISRT

    Thank you for your reply. But I'm still confused. Can I install the OSS on my HDD without having to partition it or delete its data? Also where do I get the necessary chipset and other drivers? Is there a srt utility for an asrock board like there is for the gigabyte board which automates this? Once again I appreciate any feedback.
