Things I am sure of:
1 - My system is possessed.
2 - To error is human
3 - To really foul things up takes a computer.
In order to re-estabilsh the Raid-1 and SDD cache, I re-installed BIOS 0061, rebooted and re-installed the RST driver in windows while drives were using the AHCI controller and then rebooted and selected RAID in the BIOS.
After that I had to run the boot rescue procedures 3 times (apparently the lucky number to solve the boot problem) and had to boot using Safe Mode to disable the last devices loaded that were causing BSOD.
Then before booting into windows CheckDisk ran and cleared a bunch of file errors.
So, between the checkdisk and the HP Printer software uninstall (printer process error) my Device Manager (devmgr.dll.mui) got hosed and I'm trying to find out how to recover the Device Manager. Running Sfc /scannow is how I discovered the corrupt devmgr.dll.mui file.
My system has a mind of its own!
Only do a BIOS upgrade with a full system backup in the bank!!
