    Installed SSD as 2nd drive - now I get a BIOS RAID screen

    Dell 9200 desktop, WIN 7, 256GB hard drive, 128 GB SSD
    Every time I boot the start up stops after showing both drives as non-RAID with a message to select CTRL I to run configuration program.
    Two questions:
    Can I / should I consider setting up these very differnet drives as RAID?
    How can I stop that screen from appearing and slowing down boot up?

    Hi,

    Regarding question 1, no, you can't even consider it.
    Regarding question 2, I suppose these are your BIOS setup options: http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1043338. Are they?

    What value do you have for SATA operation in the Drives screen?

    The SATA Operation screen shows two options: RAID AutoDetect / ATA and RAID On. RAID On is selected. The text under the option sates that Dell recommends RAID On

    Your only option is to try the other, then.
