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,

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,

OK, good. What CPU are you using?

Also, are both your SSD and HDD connected to native Intel SATA ports?

Intel i5-3570K 3.40Ghz, and yes both SSD and HDD are connected to SATA6G_1 and SATA6G-2. Btw here are my specs.

After the boot splash screen, access your RAID Manager (Ctrl-I maybe). Does the utility "see" the SSD?

Although the RAID option is setup in the BIOS, I can not access RAID manager.

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,
