Dell Inspiron 14z - 5423 SSD caching not working

The 32GB SSD for this computer is used for cache, and significantly speeds up the boot process for Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

I installed this OS on one of my laptops. I layed an image so that I could then load the image to the other Laptops of this model that I have in stock. When I load the image to another computer the boot process is painfully slow. The BIOS hangs as well.

Intel Smart Response Technology is enabled too.

The goal is to be able to load the image onto these new computers without ruining the RAID config of the HDD and the SSD.

Problem Solved:

When loading the image onto these laptop, the SSD config was not carried over properly.

I installed the IRST (Intel Rapid Speed Step) app from http://support.dell.com

Then I disabled the SSD acceleration role, and deleted the configuration. I restarted and the BIOS/POST worked as it should.

I reconfigured the SSD config, restarted a couple of times and noticed that the SSD cache writing was working.

I dont think you can as the raid setup will not happen that has to be done or there will not be a (virtual) drive for the image
