How do I know if my W530 is RAID-enabled?

#1 Post by olddog » Sun Feb 17, 2019 7:11 am

There is currently only one disk in it, so it's not using RAID ATM.

And on the subject of RAID, would it work to run RAID on two disks of the same capacity but different speeds? Conventional SATA and mSATA.

Thanks in advance.

I think those would be listed in the device manager under your disc controllers.

I just recently installed IDE/AHCI drivers for Windows XP64 that does not include AHCI drivers and after slipstreaming them into the .iso and reloading the OS, they show up in the device manager.
