Intel Rapid Storage Technology
« on: April 11, 2018, 06:13:06 am »
Hi,

I have a new Lenovo Legion Y520 laptop that uses Intel's Rapid Storage Technology. My question is, can Peppermint be installed to RST enabled systems yet ?  Is this a Linux Kernel issue ?

I am not yet willing to trash the install but would love to dual boot Peppermint.

Regards Zeb..

Hi Pin,

Thanks for this, I am sure once I have read it a few times I will be confident enough to give it a go.

Fake RAID seems to be what you're looking to set-up... Sorry, I can't help with own experience but, I don't have such machines
Good luck!
Arch guides are usually good.

As far as I'm aware you'd just want to disable RAID setting the drive to AHCI, then remove the RAID array metadata from the drive .. then you should be able to install 'normally'.

https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2359208

If I'm understanding that link properly I can personally see no real point in having RAID configured across disparate technologies like NVMe and either an SSD or an HDD (at least in Linux) .. just install the OS to the NVMe drive and use the other for storage.

But if you really wanna configure fakeraid, just installing mdadm in the Live session prior to installation would 'probably' work.
(though I must add I've never tried this)

But, woundn't setting the drive to AHCI stop Windows from booting?

At least that's what I thought??
