  • Press ESC 3 times to go back to the main menu
  • Next, navigate over to the Boot tab and change the Boot Type to Legacy
  • Exit Saving Changes
  • The K700 will now reboot. As soon as it does, hold the Control key and tap “I” until you see the Intel Rapid Storage Technology menu
  • Select option 1 from the menu
  • Use the tab key to navigate and the up/down arrows to change options.
  • A RAID1 configuration is shown
  • Tab down to “Create Volume” and press enter

  • You will be taken back to the main screen and your new RAID volume will be visible.
  • Select option 6 to Exit, and then press Control-Alt-Del to restart
  • You will now toggle the boot mode back to UEFI
