I had to do a Factory Restore on my XPS 8700. I now have an alert showing in the Intel Rapid Storage Technology application saying:
The Windows write-cache buffer flushing policy can be enabled for all RAID array drives to ensure data integrity or disabled to improve data performance. I am unsure if I have to do anything here and, if so, what?
Sata SSD on Controller 0, Port 5: Incompatible. I read what that means (volume moved to another system that does not support the volume type and configuration), however I have not added or removed anything from my system since it was shipped to me. I am at a loss as to what I have to do and am only guessing at what it means.
I am attaching screen shots hoping someone can help before I continue restoring back to Win 10 and reinstating my files.
My storage drives (as shipped) was:
2TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive + 32GB mSATA Solid State Drive
(1 x SSDR, 32, S3, MCARD, SAMSUNG, CM851 )
(2 x SCREW, M2X3, K SCREW HEAD, MISCROSOFT, BLACK OXIDE)
(1 x HARD DRIVE, 2T, S3, 7.2K, 512E, SGT-GRDABP2 )
Hoping someone can help me with this - I think my age is preventing me from getting my head around it.
Dell will not help you, other than to send a tech with a refurbished motherboard. After weeks of this, I took it upon myself to go into their F2 Bios and disable RAID Storage (Configured the SATA in ACHI mode.) I had to reinstall Windows, and now the machine no longer crashes. This is a Dell problem that they do not want to fix.
