Does Fedora 29 support the Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) chip for
hardware RAID? My new ThinkPad P72 came with an RST chip set up with two
2TB PCIe M.2 SSDs in a RAID1 config. The Fedora-29-MATE-Compiz spin DVD
doesn't "see" it. Nor does Clonezilla.
There's a BIOS mode setting for the Intel RST: "RST" mode for RAID, and
"AHCI" mode for separate SATA drives. Changing that setting to AHCI will
probably break the RAID1 array and render the P72 unbootable. I don't know
if that would a destructive, irreversible change, or if changing the mode
setting back to RST would restore everything.
I've only tried the MATE spin. One purpose of this question is to find out
if the full installation DVD supports the Intel RST chip.
