might have accidentally setup RAID

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok as stupid as it sounds I think i am unintentionally running RAID (well i have an intel mobo so AHCI i guess?) i dont really know. I had a hdd running my old OS and recently got a samsung evo SSD that i installed windows 8 on. I'm not sure though because i did have both connect when i installed but I didnt do anything to setup RAID just installed on the SSD.
So now a month later i take out my hard drive to make room in my case and it say something like connect a device or disc to boot to. Reconnected my hard drive and it works fine again so it must be that I'm running RAID right? I don't want to wipe my memory and reinstall unless i absolutely have to.

that's not raid. It sounds like the system reserve partition is on your HDD.

You can remove it by doin this:

Remove system reserve partition: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/71363-system-reserved-partition-delete.html

GUIDE:
  1. Boot from your installation or repair disc.
  2. When you get to the language screen, press Shift+F10.
  3. Type diskpart, Enter
  4. Type list disk, Enter after diskpart is loaded
  5. Type select disk X (where X is your drive with the System reserve partition on it), Enter
  6. Type list partition, Enter
  7. Type select partition X (where X is your System reserve partition), Enter
  8. Type delete partition override, Enter
  9. Type list disk, Enter
  10. Type select disk X (where X is your OS drive), Enter
  11. Type list partition, Enter
  12. Type select partition X (where X is your OS partition), Enter
  13. Type active, Enter
  14. Close the command prompt

We have deleted the partition, and Windows will be unable to boot at this point. Now it is time to write a new boot loader and BCD to the Windows partition.

Now shut down, unplug any secondary drives, boot up and run start up repair up to 3 times.

If startup repair does not work follow this: (link)

In CMD type:
  1. bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup, Enter
  2. c:, Enter
  3. cd boot, Enter
  4. attrib bcd -s -h -r, Enter
  5. ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old, Enter
  6. bootrec /RebuildBcd, Enter

"The store export operation has failed.
The system cannot find the file specified."
