I want to enable Intel Smart Response Technology in BIOS before install win 7, because I couldn't enable it after I installed windows 7 by choosing ATA in BIOS SATA operation.
When I choose Intel Smart Response as SATA operation, it ask for SSD driver and I have it in a flash drive and operation goes OK, but when it comes for choosing partition for installing windows. Installation state that it couldn't be installed in this partition, do I need HDD driver to install windows in HDD while enabling Intel Smart Response in SATA operation. or I need to enable it after I install win 7 by choosing ATA in SATA operation??

For Smart Response, RAID has to be enabled. It uses the SSD like a cache drive in which it is set up in RAID. Make sure you have RAID selected in the BIOS.

kg4icg, RAID is selected in BIOS, problem is in windows installation. Couldn't be installed in HDD partition "HDD partitions appear to select one of them, but when I select one, windows returns error"

You don't install Win on the ssd, for smart response the ssd is used as a cache drive, you install os on the hdd.
