Intel Rapid Storage Technology SSD Help?
"Your system has detected one or more errors, and data may be lost.
Your system is configured to enable advanced SATA features for optimal power management and increased storage performance.

"The Windows write-cache buffer flushing policy can be enabled for all RAID array drives to ensure data integrity or disabled to improve data performance. Click the help etc..."
By default, Windows* write-cache buffer flushing is enabled to ensure data integrity. This means that the system will periodically instruct the storage driver to write all cached data to the main storage media. These periodic commands result in decreased overall system performance. You can choose to disable Windows write-cache buffer flushing to restore system performance, allowing the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver to handle all write-cache buffer flushing.
You can disable Windows write-cache buffer flushing to improve performance by completing the following steps:
1. Click Start and then right-click Computer and select Manage.
2. In Computer Management, click Device Manager, and then expand Disk drives.
3. Right-click your disk device and select Properties.
4. Click the Policies tab.
5. Select the 'Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device' check box.
6. Click 'OK'."
Not really sure what the error is here. For my Intel Raid 0 Volume and on my two M4-CT128 M4SSD2 I have Write-caching enabled. One says M4-CT128 M4SSD2, while the other says M4-CT128 M4SSD2 SCSI Disk Device.
On the one that says M4-CT128 M4SSD2 SCSI Disk Device I have a Removal Policy and a Write-caching policy. The Removal policy is set to Better performance (default) and both have Write-caching enabled, while M4-CT128 M4SSD2 doesn't have a Removal Policy. Both have the Driver Version 6.2.9200.16384 dated 6/21/2006.
Under the Volumes tab for all (Intel Raid 0 Volume and both M4 devices) no information is shown. Under details, Hardware Ids for M4-CT128 M4SSD2 SCSI Disk Device it reads SCSI\DiskM4-CT128M4SSD2__________000F, while for the M4-CT128 M4SSD2 it reads SCSI\DiskATA_____M4-CT128M4SSD2__000F. They're the exact same type of SSD.
I'm guessing I need to change something in my BIOS for these devices? If so, what would that be?

But I'm not getting any freezes or hangs. Everything seems to be working fine. I'm just OCD about Windows errors. Like this new one "httpd.exe: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name", but I don't even have Apache installed. WTF?
