    Hitman07 there are already some threads around with the same issues (its a common issue my advice is if your laptop didnt had drives in raid on stock out of the box and if you have rst installed either disable it or uninstall it because in the long term will create issues when youre prompt to create a raid and you accept it)and that happens when rst asks you to create a raid because you dont have similar drives it will convert the larger to recovery drive bare in mind that raid will not work if you dont have 2 drives the same size/type and preferably same brand its a bit similar to ram in dual channel i suggest you to look in the community there are some threads where the raid could be broken via cmd commands other didnt worked and the only way to break it was to remove the hdd and reinstall the OS to stock with the hdd disconnected and connecting the hdd after the os is installed 

    Intel rst can be a bit of a nightmare especially if you dunno what is it for and what does it do (might do) and how to avoid it can be tricky sometimes :)
