comment How to remove a hard drive from an Intel RST RAID configuration?
I should clarify -- I'm pretty sure I already attempted those steps. In the BIOS raid config, I removed the drive from the raid config, and it showed up as "non-raid member". Then, when I booted, Intel RST showed it as not being part of the RAID array, but still showed it in Intel rather than windows. I can't find a way to "delete" it from Intel's control and move it back to the OS as a basic drive..

Makes sense. Thanks!

Great, that's exactly what I was looking for. Just to clarify: are you recommending cloning the drive so that the raid doesn't tax itself trying to synchronize the drives?

comment How to get Win8 installed onto a laptop without DVD or USB?
Frederik, just to follow up on that. If I was to purchase a USB dvd drive right now, wouldn't I still have a problem, because the laptop can't boot from a USB and therefore wouldn't see that drive to boot from it? Or would I start the installation in the DVD drive, move the install DVD to the USB drive, and then try to boot from there somehow? A little confused as to how you'd suggest implementing your idea.

Frederik, I certainly would have tried that...if I have one on hand. Hoping there's a way to do this without making an additional purchase since the laptop is already a money pit of sorts. Will be buying one later if I have to..
