Windows 7: BSOD, plus odd Windows error

The options you are talking about are in the top part of the window it sounds like. Look at the bottom part of the window. You should have 1 disk with 1Partition that says system Active, another partition that says HP 454GB. That is the one that you want to keep. In fact, it would help if you post a screenshot of Disk management showing the upper and lower portionas of it Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Update....I was able to right click on "offline" on Disc 1 and choose "online" and it assigned letters to all of the drives (J/K/L). I think it may be good to go! However, I obviously don't need those three partitions. Can I change it to just one big drive by reformatting it? Also, should I uninstall the Intel RST Service now?

The second disk, right click each partition and select delete, after you have deleted them all, right click the empty space and select new simple volume and follow the guide, just be sure it is an MBR partition and is not active.

They both appear to me exact duplicates of each other. So, that is good.

The two smaller partitions deleted just fine. However the large partition gives me a message that says it is currently in use (see screen shot). Should I delete it anyway?

Since it was originally listed as "offline" anyway, my guess would be that I can delete it, but I wanted to check first.

I rebooted and then it let me delete it with no problem. Then I did the New Simple Volume and reformatted it. Looks like it's good to go.

Last question then...do I delete the Intel RST Service? It says it isn't running anyway (it's still in the sys tray).

I wouldn't uninsta;; IRST right boe right now. I would delete that partition anyway, just so long as you understand, you may not be able to boot any more. If you want to test first, turn the computer off, unplug the data cable from that drive and reboot. If you have no problems, then you can shut down and reconnect it.

You may have missed my last post...I was able to delete that partition and reformat the drive after a reboot. The only thing left would be the Intel RST Service. Otherwise I think the RAID should be completely gone. Thanks!

If iaStor.sys (and its variants) need to be removed, don't I have to uninstall Inter RST service? I've also seen where just uninstalling the software doesn't uninstall the drivers and you need to uninstall those separately. Is that right?
