I have a Lenovo U410 laptop which have a 1TB hdd and a 32gb ssd. The ssd is used for speeding up the startup time with Intel Rapid Storage Technology. The partition table for the SSD looked something like this: Create new partition on ssd hard (remove hibernate) . One difference is that the ssd consist of only the OEM and the Hibernate partition, where 8GB is hibernate and the rest is OEM, whereas both are formated in a arbitrary file system.
When I booted up in linux, I saw that the ssd had only one partition (the 8gb hibernate part) and the rest was marked "unused". I formated the "unused" part as a ntfs partition so I could use the space. But when I tried to startup windows, it freezes at the windows startup screen (the spining dots stop spinning). Also, it is not possible to start automatic recovery because it forever stays on the 'starting automic recovery' screen.
When I switch to AHCI instead of RAID in the bios it looks like windows starts up alright, but right before the login screens it gives a blue screen. When switched to AHCI it is possible to enter the recovery though.
Does someone know what is going wrong here and know a possible fix? Or a way to find what's going wrong in the background?
