Basicly I have this problem with my HD seagate. I googled the thing and apparently there is nothing to do except backup data and waiting for the HD to fail.

That's I want to do, the HD in question is used for backup stocking, everything on it is elsewhere, I just still use it for practical matter... so Im ok with it dying one day or another out of the blue. Since the utility of this dying disk is pretty low I dont want to buy a new one (financial matter too), my problem is I dont want my PC to warn me about it every powerup.

I have a SSD, pretty good computer so basicly between the time I press the button and the moment I can use it it's like 10 sec. It's really anoying to have this quick process killed by the SMART warning where I have to do, F1 - Enter - Enter

So i'm not asking for a way to get rid of the SMART problem I just want to have my PC starting fast and going directly on the Desktop without going throught the SMART Warning and the Bios every time.

Tanks by advance for your help.
