The SSD is only used for a cache, to store the data used most often to speed the hard drive up. There is no splitting of the data, and you still have IRST installed which has the Raid drivers but also has AHCI Drivers. So, I don't see any reason it wouldn't boot. Does that sound logical to you?
Yes, it sounds totally logical, and I'm sure you're right. What a dumb setup. I mean, really! Leave it to Dell to configure it that way and then bork the driver!

I am 26% done with the system image and crossing my fingers. If I get that completed without a BS, I'll cut the rescue disk, make sure it boots, and then change that setting to AHCI.

Okay back again. Here's the update:

Got the image made - don't ask me how, must have been Divine intervention!
Not sure if it got through the verification phase, b/c I went to bed.

Evidently the thing has been blue-screening all night and re-booting on its own.

I got the rescue ISO on the desktop, but not able to keep it on long enough to cut a disk.

I went into the BIOS and changed to AHCI. Rebooted, and it blue-screened so fast I almost didn't notice; went back into boot loop with "Start Windows Normally" or "Repair Options".

Ya know,this thing runs at 50C - does that sound right? Just wondering. I do hear the fan going on and off, and I have it set on a cooling pad.

Laptops ten to run hot. I have an old Pentium laptop running 8.1 and it idles at 50. It's a Dell too and the fan doesn't even run until it gets hotter than 50.

So, what did you do? Is it booting yet? Did you try resetting BIOS and see if it boots?

Try going into BIOS and just disable Intel Rapid Start.
