Lenovo Y410p with 24gb SSD Setup Help
I have read tens of forums about the Intel Rapid Storage or Smart Storage Technology, as well as the Express Cache (including about 8 or so from here), but neither of them seem to work. IRST comes installed on the system, but I am unable to set it up ( no RAID option?)...
*Once i saw how bad the performance was with the original drive, I cloned the original 1TB HDD and put in a 1TB SSHD Hybrid drive so that all the partitions are setup the same. Also upped the ram to 12gb from 8gb.*
Main concern is that boot-up time is around 3 minutes (just stay on Lenovo screen with the loading circle), and I know it should be MUCH faster than that,.. I want to make sure the SSD is being utilized as it is supposed to be.
Any help on setting this up would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
