Ever since I installed a new SATA Raptor drive, my bios has been showing this NvRaid message on every boot now. I "DON'T" want to use RAID, because I only have an IDE and SATA hardrive. Also, it seems the BIOS startup is MUCH slower now. I've set my IDE drive to cable select and connected it using the "Slave" part of the IDE Cable, because my OS is running off the Raptor. The RAM count doesn't even appear now.
My computer's boot sequence has three delays.
The first one is when the motherboard manufacturer name and ram count appears...this takes 15 seconds.
The second one is when the disks are detected. This takes yet another 15 seconds!
Finally after the usual scroll of computer specs goes by, this NvRaid message appears. It's trying to detect if I'm using Raid or something... anyways, it takes almost 15 seconds to finish! i went into the bios and disabled the NvRaid IDE/SATA feature completely...yet, the message STILL appears. Damn gigabyte bios is stubborn!
THAT'S 45 SECONDS ADDED TO MY BOOT SEQUENCE...How the hell did that happen!?
I'm going to try booting from Gigabyte's CD and seeing if that can solve the issue. (probably won't though )
Any experiences with this issue?
...Atleast Windows XP still boots up ok. SATA 10000rpm makes everything run sooo much faster. Wish POST ran at normal speed though.
Does running a SATA and IDE drive in the same machine cause the 15 second delay? Really Ghey...
