Two 500gb HD. trying to get back to a selective boot screen.
They are SATA connected on "0" and "1" SATA ports. At one time the system
was set up RAID "0". I removed the RAID configuration and it went to
selective bootscreen ok.Since then one of the drives went out and I replaced it with
an identicale 500gb Seagate drive.The system was originally a System Max computer.
when I boot now I get a screen with Marvell controler search for raid hard disks.
Both HD have Windows XP Pro, service pack 2.Every thing works fine on both drives.
I have to swap the cable from the "0" port to the drive I want to run.
I do think I am getting this because when I reloaded the drive I replaced
I used the System Max driver cd that came with the system,just cannot figure out how to get
rid of it.
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6700 2.66GHz 4m
4gb 6400 pc 6400 ddr2
(was originally dual 500gb sata Raid 0stripe)

Thanks for any input.
