How to get rid of Initialize, Ignore or Eject message on startup of OS X

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Here's how I have my drives setup:


1TB on Marvell chipset with AHCI enabled (OS X Snow Leapord 10.6.8).

Crucial M4 on ICH10R (Windows 7)

4 x 320GB SATA on ICH10R (slave for Win7)


I just installed OS X on the 1TB which is on the Marvell Controller. Everything working fine.


But when I startup into OS X I get this error message for the four HDD's which are on the ICH10R controller (they are in a RAID0). It asks me for each one if I would like to initilize, eject or ignore. I hit ignore each time I startup but I'm affraid one day I'll hit initialize by accident and screw my array.


I'd prefer this RAID array to be completely ignored by OS X as I only use use it in Windows BUT if it's easier to install the ICH10R driver or kext then I'm willing to try that (I can do a backup first etc).


Any help much appreciated!
