I have a Lenovo U310 ideapad which I need to install Windows 8 on. I boot to USB containing the OS, and choose custom install. The hard drive on the laptop is not seen.
I have downloaded and extracted both the Raid and the chipset drivers from lenovo, added them to a second USB drive and tried to load the driver. I receive the message that 'no signed device drivers were found".
I went back and looked at the extracted folder and within the \2. intel rapid storage technology driver folder is a Setup.exe and handfull of .iss, .inx, .hdr, and .dll files.
The laptop has a rapid storage flash drive for boot, along with the HDD, thus the RAID driver.
Do I need to make a change in the BIOS in storage; change it from RAID to AHCI
Also, under Intel Rapid Start Technology there are three options; iRST is Enabled, Entry on S3 is Enabled, and iRST Partition Status is Enabled. Disable these?
