Original system was RAID 0. One drive went out.Bought identicle 500 gb Seagate sata and installed it.
Upon boot all went well,boot screen gave me a choice of which to boot to.At a later date had to reformat
C and do a reinstall,all works fine but now on boot I get a message that MARVELL RAID is searching
for a raid configuration,and can't find it "hit space to continue".And does go to my C drive.
The system operates fine on both drives,no problem there.I just can't get back to the selective
boot up.With drives connected to SATA"0" and SATA "1" that is what I have.Right now I have
to disconnect the "0" cable and connect it to SATA "1". to use that drive. With both drives connected in Windows
Explorer SATA"0" comes up as "C",and SATA"1" comes up as "E".
in SYSTEM bios I have drive config set to SATA/AUTO/IDE.I did find in system info signed drivers
Also in sys info sys. drivers.
I am running WINDOWS XP PRO on both drives service pack 2.
Not sure if I can do this thru registry editor or not.
I think because the computer came set up for RAID"0" that I am
getting this because of the manufacture software and drivers on
there cd when I reinstall.Just can't figure it out because I had it working once with
selective boot.Thank you all for any input in advance.ruffus,
