Hardware Headache

I built a new development machine over the holidays using Intel’s new Rapid Storage Technology.

What a PITA!  Two OS reloads to get the system to acknowledge it’s using RST, then the intel driver crashes and the system crashes on OS install.  Well that’s enough RST for me!  I reconfigured the SSD as a standard drive and all seems to be working.

I configured Windows to put the User directory and Program Files/Program Files(x86) onto the 2TB D: drive.
