Problem with SSD Intel's SRT software

I am having problems with SRT software showing the Accelerate Button. Here is my system:
System Configuration
Motherboard Maximus V Formula
BIOS 1604
Memory: G.Skill DDR3-1866 PC3-14900 18Mb (2x8Mb)
OS: Windows 7 Pro (with all Window Updates installed)
SSD: OCZ V4 128Mb
HDD: WD 1TB
RAID setup in BIOS to take advantage od Intel's SRT
Video Card: AMD HD7970

Using SRT Ver. 11.1.0.1006

Thanks in advance,

  1. Are you trying to use your SSD for SSD Caching (via SRT) to improve Windows performance? If so, you must use a 64GB or less sized partition on the SSD.

    Please clarify if this is not what you are doing and have Windows installed on the SSD itself.

    I want to use 64M of the 128M SSD for caching (via SRT). Do I need to make 2 64M partitions on the SSD? Can this be done, once the SSD & the HDD are in a RAID? If so, how, though the diskmgmt.msc?

    Thanks for your reply,

    Yes I have, my whole problem is when I bring up SRT, the Acceration Button is not there, therefore the whole purpose of SRT is mute, since I cannot pick 64Mb for the Cashing partition.
  4. OK, good. What CPU are you using?

    Also, are both your SSD and HDD connected to native Intel SATA ports?
  5. Intel i5-3570K 3.40Ghz, and yes both SSD and HDD are connected to SATA6G_1 and SATA6G-2. Btw here are my specs.

  6. After the boot splash screen, access your RAID Manager (Ctrl-I maybe). Does the utility "see" the SSD?
  7. Although the RAID option is setup in the BIOS, I can not access RAID manager.
  8. Is your BIOS version current?

    Yes, I have the latest bios. Guys, thanks for all your help, but I've decided to re-install windows under ACHI, so please close this thread out.

    Thanks again for everyone's effort,
