[solved] First SSD for me - bootmanager problem.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just installed my ssd on all is currently well until I get to the booting stage.

I currently have two bootable os's (2hdd's in raid 0 and the intel ssd) however the dual boot selection process does not appear and this makes the default drive that is enabled via the bios to load it's os.

I believe that this has something to do with the bootmgr but i'm not sure. The ssd is on the intel chipset along with my raid 0 drives, raid is also selected on the bios (has to be in order for my hdd to function as raid) but I checked that TRIM is running by running the disabledeletenotify command which gave back a 0 entry.

So is it that because I have selected raid in the bios or a problem with the bootmgr? I'v done dual boot before but not on this mobo. the only way I can change os's is by going to the bios and changing boot priorites from raidvolume0 to intelssd.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Without knowing how you installed the OS's it is pretty hard to suggest a fix.

Down and dirty, you can edit boot.ini (for xp) or use bdc.edit (or is it bcd.edit?) for Vista/W7, or you may have to use both.

Microsoft covers it in detail.

might need to redo an install to get the bootmanager working right.

installed with the disk lol

More specifically, the 2 hdd's in raid already had a bootable os on it (w7), in order to update the firmware on my ssd I had to change the bios from to ahci mode. Once I updated the firmware I changed to BIOS setting back to raid and installed windows 7 on my ssd, now the problem is there is two bootable os's in my rig, however, the dual boot menu does not show up.

First I would try a bootmanager fix. Hiren's boot cd has a utility on it that fixes a lot of issues with it.

Second would be to try a reinstall of the OS. This time install with the RAID option being enabled. Did the windows installer see your previous installation while you were installing onto your ssd?

Did you install the OS on the SSD with the RAID 0 drives disconnected? I installed Win7 in IDE mode on my SSD. Once its installed on the SSD, you can connect the RAID array back, select AHCI mode and the RAID array should still work. That's what I did with my setup. If you select RAID as boot, it will only boot to the RAID array and skip the SSD. In AHCI mode, it should see both and give you the option, but they need to have the OS's installed individually, not while connected.

Now finally msconfig shows two bootable os's
