    issd is n't detected, so diskpart doesn't see any disk for it

    Do you see it in the BIOS?

    Have you seen the drive before? If yes then perhaps the drive had gone bad.

    That's what it seems like. Just after I started having slow boot up problems, I did see it in device manager briefly, but only once. It's ridiculous that I can't just disable it in the BIOS. I don't want to send it back and be without for a month.

    Great post. Cheers!
    I had a similar suspicion, that this driver may have messed things up. Maybe anyone else could shed a light on..
    I only ran it as a storage, and would love to rescue the data before sending it into ASUS for the RMA.
    Which Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver are you running now?

    I managed to get a modified BIOS from Klem66, which opens up a lot of settings to me. In there, I can disable SATA port 1, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Anyone got any other ideas on how to disable it?

    Hi, I have the same problem with my laptop, the 24gb issd suddenly is unavailable in Windows 8.1 pro.
    The boot is slow, it takes about 5 minutes. I used this disk for temp files. I managed to recover the data using clonezilla. I saved the partition disk and I restored the image in a virtual machine, it worked like a charm.
    I rebooted with Gparted and I deleted the issd disk without an issue. Then I rebooted in Windows, the boot was very fast, like always.(I have an ssd disk). The disk was present in disk manager but I was unable to format it and a couple seconds later the disk has been disconnected by windows via rapid storage.
    Whether I booted with linux distribution or windows mini xp the disk is unavailable but with clonzilla and gparted instead, the disk is live and kicking. In the end, the most important thing is that I managed to recover the files.
