I have windows 8 pro installed on my 2 TB HDD but I got a 256 gb sdd and I want to use it as caching. I saw some tutorial online and they all tell to switch to raid in the bios ( I am right now in ahci)but when I do it I get a blue screen.
not an expert on this but my first thought would have been to install win8 on the ssd and use the 2tb for data storage ,so i googled a bit and read one site that the people replying to the similar question as yours seem to agree with what i thought would be the way i would do it if i had a ssd drive .
good luck Using a 256GB 840 pro for OS and cache - Cache - Storage

So I decided to reinstall on the ssd but I only have the product key so I normally just donwload the iso from microsoft. But i can't find it. I need win 8 pro but I only saw win enterprise
