Did you follow the steps to disable IRST in BIOS in the link I provided just above?

I have no such option in Bios. Nor I can find drivers for installation of ISRT on hard drive on Samsung website. Just some Windows lvl application for it.

And following steps from second topic led to same result as before :)
But it pointed me to the idea of cloning

Do you have all of your drivers in Device Manager? If not IRST do you know which is providing the caching with SSD? You may want to check your model's Support Downloads webpage for listed drivers and the Manual.

Does your Manual explain how to turn back on caching with the SSD?

Incidentally we've helped several of those with 32gb SSD caches install Win7 on it, which they preferred due to performance speed, so kept it with User folders on the HD. Is there a noticeable difference in SSD performance? Are you sure it's smaller than 32gb which is smallest we've seen here before?

So that's the almost exact model of the laptop that I'm working on.
All of the drivers from it work as they should.
I do not have any manual, and one on website doesn't explain anything apart from using build in recovery (which is long gone and forgotten ).

And Device Manager shows that everything is running as it should.

May I ask how you know that the SSD caching is working as intended? It normally is RAIDed via a setting in BIOS and requires a driver. Do you see any similar setting on any tab in BIOS setup?

Do you have IRST driver in Device Manager? If not is there a simlar driver to IRST or which provides SSD caching under IDE-ATA controllers or System Devices in Device Manager?

SSD wasn't working at all as a cache - just as a regular drive:)
But main idea was to get the Laptop up and running again, and then worry about rest.
Currently I used drivers from Samsung website (they were in the other zip file) and reinstalled the whole system again (either booting from system reserved partition or setting SSD id to 84 prevented installer from messing up whole installation again) and will try to switch IRST again :). Hopefully it will work :)
