    IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) and ExpressCache


    I have ASUS laptop that comes with 24gb SSD. From what I read, to be able to enable caching in the SSD after formatting all drives, IRST and expresscache should be installed. The default factory setting, which I formatted to, is bundled with IRST driver installer and express cache installer. I tried to install IRST, and then it asked me to restart. Then, nothing happens. I tried to search the IRST app, but there is none. The expresscache installer seems to be working since I can find it in the programs and features window. The question is, how am I supposed to install the bundled IRST installer in order to utilize my SSD for caching drive?Any help will be much appreciated since I can't find any answer regarding my problem.
