    need help with rst set up windows 8

    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.

    note: my mobo is z77x-ud5h

    thanks for your time!

    win8.1.1 enterprise

    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
