A problem that has been haunting me ever since I installed my current motherboard (ASRock 890FX Deluxe 4) is that my two external drives, contained in a Startech ESATCASE2, which connects to a SI RAID controller card (can't remember the model at the moment), causes the BIOS to hang on the last BIOS screen, unless I remember to turn the drives off, until Windows starts booting. I never really tried to solve this problem before, but the longer I deal with it, the more annoying it becomes. Not sure, but I think the problem is because the external drives are set to run separately as non-RAID drives, and the BIOS is looking for RAID instead. I'm thinking of two possible means to solve the problem...either configure a RAID system that combines the two drives as one, but with two partitions, or to find an external SATA controller with two ports, that has no raid within it. I don't remember if my RAID controller has the ability to do it, but I vaguely remember something about a configuration that does nothing more than to connect two drives as one, but I would imagine that even if I could, to configure it in that fashion now would be destructive, and I would lose all of the data now on those drives, which I shall not do. That seems to only leave the possibility of buying a new non-RAID controller. I did some shopping for one back quite some time ago, and as far as I recall, nothing quite fit the bill. Does anyone know of a card that would solve my problem?
