Go to the screen in your post #159.

Highlight the adapter by selecting with arrow keys then hit DEL to delete it.
If successful, try adding your other HDD and see if it will be seen.

It actually won't let me delete it on that screen. It's selected by default on that screen but when I hit the delete key, nothing happens.

If I hit enter, it brings me to the screen in my previous post.

Ok, saw something new, lets hope this works:

From Serial Attached SCSI BIOS Configuration Utility (you should copy/paste this page -also bookmark- somewhere as you may need it in the future)

See the line in Bold. I guess left/right would take you there (couldn't see anywhere in page)

Boot Order
The order in which adapters will boot when the system has more than one adapter. Up to four of the total adapters in a system may be selected as bootable. To add an adapter to the boot list, press Insert while on the Boot Order field. To remove an adapter from the boot list, press Delete while on the desired adapterís Boot Order field. Press the - or + keys to change the adapterís position in the boot order.

If the RAID card isn't booting the OS drive then it doesn't need to be in the Boot order at all. Set SSD first to boot.

Hi Greg, in the BIOS, I have the SSD set to boot first in the list. Or are you referring to do something in the raid window?

As long as SSD is set to boot first, I suppose the RAID card's own Boot Priority is not at issue. It shouldn't really be set to boot at all, though, as you only want it as a discreet controller card to use to add data drives, correct? However the behavior of RAID cards is often to be set to pop up at boot to control their boot order.

Do you see any other way to remove it from Boot Order? If not then does it interfere as far as you can tell?

It is more of an annoyance than anything else. It gives a warning at each boot that boot drive is missing or some such.

Hoping the last method I proposed (post #173) will remove it from the list without disabling the card all together, rendering it useless for data drives as well.

I've always assumed RAID cards offer popup at boot because they are not available for configuration (just disabling) in BIOS setup which is the only other way to access a drive or its controller outside the OS.

I tried deleting it like you mention in your post GokAy, but the message I get is:

"The adapter at Boot Order position 0 cannot be deleted. There must be at least 1 adapter in the Boot Order at all times."
