It doesn't appear that Rapid Start is the issue. The issue was that the SSD wasn't being detected. Rapid start is a technology of newer intel boards that, combined with an SSD, allows a computer to resume from standby faster.
My board is an XBX2. It's from a time before SSDs, at least before they were so readily available to the public for an affordable price.
