Re: Windows 7 on Dell Precision 670 Adaptec Host Raid doesn't work

First of all i would like to ask you whether the Chipset on your motherboard supports Intel Raid using either Sata 1 and Sata 2 ports. Also check whethr the Intel Matrix Storage Manager for RAID is enabled or not . If not then you need to enable it. If you can enable raid on an intel mother board then it clearly indicates that you have an Intel Raid using the 32bit or 64bit Matrix Storage Manager.

i would like to know whether you can Disable or enable the SCSI controller from the bios of your system and also i would like to know whether you can disable the SATA operation in BIOS. Please specify the options which you get since after all these information are known i can try to give you a possible solution to this problem.

I think you need to follow the steps which i have mentioned below
  • Take backup of your SCSI drivers.
  • Reboot the system and enter bios to set the boot order after that insert the discsload the setup and follow the steps and complete the installation.
  • When the system boots for the first time do not reboot.
  • Open the command prompt and run it as the administrator.
  • Open the system 32 folder in the c: directory.
  • Run the "bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS "and
  • "bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON"
  • This should definitely solve the issue.

I think you should try to download and install Adaptec Serial ATA HostRAID driver. It provides a very high performance serial ATA connectivity in order to enhance the performance and data protection. It is one of the best for your desktop which require optimum system performance such as the audio as well as video streaming and also for the gamers. It is much easier to install since it is very thinly insulated.
