Argh!
Look and don't blink with your eyes. Nothing on firts screen with HP logo, or just after it? Most of the time on bottom of screen. Nothing like press ctrl-i to enter raid or something similar. maybe ctrl-n as someone else wrote
There is no HP logo, just a black screen and in the lower left corner it says "Press esc for HP options", then goes straight to windows loading. This just seems to be a diagnosis menu with no options to change anything, I will go get a screen shot.

HP seemd to have locked the BIOS settings indeed. I wanted you to change to AHCI mode and use the standard win7 drivers..... but impossible with locked bios

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

It actually said "Press esc for startup menu" and this is the menu.

I did a google, and people seem to think AHCI is enabled by default on this model.

Sure?? I read it as well. But others say RAID. Yours "device management" tells it s RAID

try safe mode (if working at all) and clean boot as told above

Sorry, I am in New Zealand and it was 4am so I got some sleep!

I did the rootkit scan, and it found nothing.

I have done a clean and safe boot, neither crashed.

So! I think that might be good sign?


EDIT: The crash has stopped happening altogether now. This is pretty annoying because no changes where made that I can think of... So basically I have no idea if and when it will happen again.


EDIT Again: Right so crashes started again, and happened in both safe mode and clean boot. Damn.
