Re: Have a RAID 1 want to stop it, how to?
No, you will have to re-install, BUT FIRST you need to set your bios up
On some MB Bios settings there might be 2-3 areas to set the Raid options so
go thru and make sure Raid is not set up..
1) It's been awhile since I have messed with Raid, but I think since you
have Raid on the HDs now, that during the boot up you need to go into the
Raid setup first. Not sure, on some MBs the F8 key I believe it is for Raid
2) Unmount the Raid on HDs first.. Reboot, go into bios then remove the
3) Reboot, and re-install..
