DOS Screen on startup

I added a second hard drive to my system this week. Now when I boot I get a dos screen for a couple of seconds that displays a Storage Manager message. It discplay information about my old drive and my new drive and says they are both non-Raid disks.

After the display, everything starts and runs as it should. This is an HPE-180t running Windows 7 64 bit.

so, what is your question?

No, you can't turn it off to my knowledge, nor do you want to as you may want to get to that screen if you ever decide to use raid.

it is part of the Motherboard and BIOS. Your Mobo has built-in RAID controller.

You can ignore it.
