Does Fedora 29 support the Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) chip
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.
I've only seen this with a small flash drive and a large spinning drive.
In the few cases I've run into this, I've turned off the RST to be
able to install.
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.
At least in the ones I've worked with, turning RST off in the BIOS does
not corrupt anything. But they've been in a much different
configuration than you have.
