Do you have a RAID array set up, or do you wish to? If not, and you do not want to get this message, go into the BIOS and disable the RAID function. If you want to set up an array, there should be instructions on screen as to what key(s) to press to enter the RAID setup. Hope this helps. If not, post back with more info and questions.

If you look under "Integrated Peripherals" in the BIOS, isn't there a place under "Onchip IDE Device" that reads "RAID Enable"? If so, simply disable it. If it's not exactly in that location, hunt around some more, as there has to be a place in the BIOS to enable/disable the RAID function.
