Win 8-64 bit
HyBrid SSD drive with Intel Rapid Storage
I'm running Windows 8 with on a HP laptop (HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 Quad Edition) with a hyBrid SSD drive with Intel Rapid Storage (accelerator enabled). It doesn't appear possible to recover from a problem with this combination.
Shift -F8 does not work (There is no boot drive.)
Restore point does not work (Repair cannot find a restore point)
Recovery disk does not work (see screenshot) The drive where windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again
Can MS address this issue. This is not an uncommon configuration. Yes you could turn off acceleration and refresh would work but this implies you have access to Windows (which I did not). The other option is to permanently disable acceleration but then what is the point of having the SSD partition?
