    I do see you have the Rapid Start software for Windows 8, but not 8.1.
    BIOS is at 215, installed a few days ago, latest.

    I don't think you are going to be able to get it working without a Bios option to enable the Rapid Start, even if you go back to Windows 8.

    My edit on an earlier post brings up a situation where some option in the Bios, which may have been available in earlier versions, might have been removed in a later version.

    Again, Windows 8 has its version of Rapid Start, called Fast Startup which is turned on or off from the Power Console options under "Choose what the Power Buttons Do".

    I might as well throw this in. When I was playing with the Smart Response technology, I tried using a SanDisk ReadyCache 32 GB SSD and had all types of problems. I did not realize the read and write speeds were so different.

    After I switched to another SSD, an Intel 64 GB one, the system worked fine. I was able to get the technology working, just had data corruption problems later with the SanDisk.
