    Hi Guys,

    I would like to stop the New Hardware Driver installation wizard from poping up everytime I boot up the computer. It is the SCSI and RAID hardware driver install wizard. I do not have a RAID setup, so I do not wish to have the driver installed. How can I stop this popup?

    Thanks in advance.

    this is your board, correct? if so, it does indeed have a third-party raid controller on it; hence the third ide and s-ata channels. find a way to disable it, either in the bios or with a jumper on the board.

    Thanks Taurus,

    I found it in the BIOS. No Jumpers. While I was in there, I disabled my onboard RAID/SATA, comm ports, game port, midi port and my FDC controller as well. It was in a submenu off a submenu in the BIOS.
