I selected "Reset Disks to Non-RAID" and now I don't see Intel RST window anymore, but I keep getting "Operation System not found" message. I disabled some intel related options in BIOS and was able to boot windows setup usb drive and when I select to repair or reset my computer I get "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again.". How am I supposed to unlock this drive? Only SSD (but not my HDD) is visible after executing this command "diskpart list disk".
This may be because there is a special configuration on the drive or the system.
Make sure the chipset is set as RAID in the BIOS. This could do the trick.
There's no option which has setting RAID in BIOS.
I somehow managed to install windows into SDD, but my HDD is not visible (probably because it was locked by RST before). How to unlock and make it visible again?
Windows from SSD loads only if the following settings are set in BIOS:
SATA Operation: AHCI (instead of Intel Smart Response Technology)
Intel Rapid Start Technology: Disabled (instead of Enabled)
Boot List Option: Legacy (instead of UEFI)
If I change those options - windows does not load.
BTW, I even booted live ubuntu from usb and it didn't detect my HDD drive.
So I have only one question: how to get my HDD back? I'm fine with data loss, all I need now - working computer with a SDD and HDD visible and working.
Maybe you have some special tools, which could unlock my HDD from RST?
Also my HDD is not visible in BIOS.
Fixed HDD: None
mSata Device LITEONIT LMS-32L6M m-(S1) 32GB
Please help make it visible again.
If the option is not in the BIOS, you need to contact Dell support so they can help you with the special configuration our system requires.
