    Hello All.
    My Girlfriends mum had a problem with one of the two hard
    drives on her laptop. She took it to PC world who remove the Faulty
    hard drive and disabled the raid sata. So the laptop would only see
    one drive. We have now bought a new drive and want to go back to
    having 2 drives. Please can someone tell me how to enable sata raid
    again? I thought it may of been in the bios setting but I can not see
    it in there! Would be grateful of any help received.
    Laptop is a Sony Vaio, running windows vista. The bios is phoenix.
    Many Thanks. Paul

    What is the model name/number for your Sony Vaio laptop?

  3. More than likely, the SATA RAID is controlled by your SATA controller and
    it's boot ROM. You should see a boot screen and instructions on how to enter
    the the setup such as CTL+C or CTL+A, depending on the manufacturor. Once in
    the setup program follow the on screen instructions, but be aware ... this
    is not for the feint of heart, and you will loose all data on both drives so
    be sure to backup and then restore. The caveate here is that the nerd
    platoon that "repaired" the system may have disabled the boot ROM in the
    BIOS.
