[all variants] Intel rapid storage and other driver issues

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an MSI GX660R which was pre-loaded (for some unknown reason) with an Intel Rapid Storage RAID-0 array accross both disks. Windows, with the Intel Rapid Storage and Intel 5 series chipset drivers, runs really quite quickly on the laptop but Ubuntu... not so much. On laptops much older and less powerful than mine, Ubuntu can boot in less than 30 seconds. On mine it takes over 40 seconds, and programs also load much less quickly. I'm not sure if those two drivers are what are making the difference - but they are the only non-windows-default drivers that I have in use, aside from the graph (Hardware)
