I bought a Dell XPS 8700 which comes with a 2TB HDD paired with a 32GB SSD cache drive using Intel's SRT technology. I'd like to install a new 512GB SSD for the OS and use the separate 2TB HDD as a completely separate file storage drive.
I don't want a cache drive or SRT at all.
After reading about Intel's Smart Response Technology it seems like a weird RAID setup which may have to be disabled in the BIOS. I basically just want to remove the 32GB drive and disable Intel SRT altogether. Can I do this by just unplugging the 32GB SSD, or is the process more complex?
I've searched through Google and found plenty of guides explaining how to setup SRT, but none which explain how to disable SRT.
