Installed WD Caviar Green drive. 1TB as 2nd drive ro backup.
HP Pavilion 64 bit. System 7
I will not use RAID and have no intentions to doing so.
When I boot up I get a DOS option regarding RAID…I go in to shutoff – it is already shut off, it says.
I have to wait for this DOS screen timeout before I get to Windows. I want to get rid of it.
I went to BIOS to see if I can DISABLE this unwanted option so it won’t show up again.
I only found 3 options list for my C: boot drive and the 2nd backup drive.
They are: RAID, or IDE, or AHCI (whatever AHCI is or does)
On a search engine, apparently a person was talking about changing the 2 drives to IDE.
Does anyone have any comments? Will it be alright for me to do this without creating
any more problems for myself? I am only trying to get rid of that COS screen at boot with
the waiting for the timeout…
with much appreciation…
