Cannot get dual boot properly set up with FAKERAID
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad U310, which has a 25GB SSD and a 500GB regular hard drive. It uses some sort of fake raid in order to use the SSD as a cache.
I would like to set up the laptop to dual boot windows 7 and xubuntu 12.04.
Here is what I've done so far. I disabled RAID and UEFI in the BIOS, then I booted Xubuntu from a flash drive. (If I didn't disable RAID in the BIOS, then the ubuntu installer couldn't see the partitions, and it would crash.) I wiped out Windows because I figured it would be easier to install windows second.
Anyway, I was able to get Xubuntu installed, but it is only using the 500GB regular hard drive. It's ignoring the SSD. I would like to get it using the SSD properly (as intended) so that it's fast. Then I would like to install windows 7, also using the SSD. I'd like to be able to choose which OS to boot to using GRUB.
