    Default Intel Rapid Start issues in Z68 Fatal1ty

    Friends,


    After much research observed that the size of the IFFS partition must be equal or greater than the amount of system memory. The software provided by AsRock is limited to 8GB. So we have to manually partition (that done, 'No valid intel rapid start partition found" message disappears) or enabled "Active Page Threshold Support" (For smaller partitions of the amount of memory in the system).
    For this you have to do the following: ftp://download.gigabyte.ru/manual/mb...intel-ui_e.pdf
    Following the manual from Gigabyte, which is more complete than the Asrock, the message will disappear and you can install the drivers. In my case, if I enable this function properly, the system reboots several times without showing any screen. I believe that is a issue in the new BIOS, which does not allow the use of Raid, AHCI only. Help me?


    Sorry my bad English,


    Thanks.

    Thanks. I've contacted the USA official support. But they only say that "working" and a link to a PDF with basic instructions (Brazilian Support was unaware of this technology.).

    This is a new technology and probably few people use it. I noticed only 3 threads talking about this new technology and issues across the Internet...
    Even the manufacturers do not seem to understand it. Intel has no drivers, such as Rapid Storage, only manufacturers.
    Basic example is the partition IFFS have the amount of system memory. I had to read a lot to understand this, although not written explicitly.

    A quick web search turned up:
    [Intel Rapid Start Technology requires Intel 7 Series Chipset support,
    dedicated SSD partition, and Intel Rapid Start Technology software and BIOS support.
    The SSD partition size should be equal to the amount of DRAM in a system.
    from http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www...gies-brief.pdf
    It sounds like the bios probably isn't ready for prime time for desktop systems.
    I'm not sure what advantage it has over the existing sleep modes, at least for desktop systems.
    Hibernation works fine for my P35 system, but my system doesn't come alive in 5 - 6 seconds.

    Exactly. I read it. I tried in a SSD and HDD with no sucess. That is why I put my conclusions above. And why I say about the software Asrock be wrong (it is limited to 8GB IFFS partition).
    from http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www...gies-brief.pdfIt sounds like the bios probably isn't ready for prime time for desktop systems.
    I agree. But what to do, whom to consult about it, as they said that some boards are suitable?
    I'm not sure what advantage it has over the existing sleep modes, at least for desktop systems.
    The advantage is this:
    Hibernation works fine for my P35 system, but my system doesn't come alive in 5 - 6 seconds.
    But basicaly there is not a hibernation mode, is a sleep mode that can be used without power.

    Cool Re: Intel Rapid Start issues in Z68 Fatal1ty

    Intel Rapid Start Technology requires Intel 7 Series Chipset support, .....
    The z68 (6 seroes chipset) probably won't work.
    With an Ivy Bridge cpu, maybe, maybe not.
    Will Rapid Start work with all desktop 7 series chipsets and processors, probably not for a while.
    Mobile 7 series chipset systems? Hopefully.
    7 series bioses are still immature and improving.
    There's still a lot of work to iron out all wrinkles and to simultaneously meet the reasonable demands of P67 and Z68 owners who were promised 100% compatibility with z75/z77 processors.

    My P35 system is a dual core processor that is a half-fast system compared to today's quad core SB or IB systems.
    Just as modern systems boot much faster than my system, my question is how long does it take Sandy or Ivy Bridge systems to come out of hibernation and/or standard sleep mode.

    just my 3 cents worth of thoughts

    I understand. So why AsRock (and Gigabyte) enabled Z68? This feature is present in H61 too.Lincredible! Miracles Do Happen! ASRock First Brings Intel Rapid Start, Smart Connect Technologies To H61 Motherboard Series!
    I'll try to use only AHCI. Thanks for comments.

    You're welcome.
    Hopefully they will get around to migrating the Rapid Start features to other motherboard models in the coming months.
    Let us know how things work out.
