z240 TW, how to make the drives non-RAID

HP Recommended
z240 TW
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi there:

   I got 20   z240 TW.

  Each one is required to be installed with Win7 and dozens of softwares.

  I have done 1 z240 TW,  and made it a image by ghost 12.0.

  I want to  image the other 19 z240 TWs from the gho file.

  The ghost 12 requires that,  the destination drive should be NON-RAID disk.

--

I have deleted the two hard disks from RAID, by pressing ctrl+i at startup. However, when I got into winPE and check the two disks, their Interface Type are still RAID.  With this issue, the ghost 12.0 always prompts an error 20052

If you are using the Intel RST driver for raid, then you must first enter the RST command console or GUI interface and "Break"

the existing array. doing so will remove the raid code from the drives MBR which sets the drive back to non-raid

 

use CTRL-I during boot to go into the RST BIOS interface. From there, you can delete the RAID/Cache volumes and then set the drives status to Non-RAID., reboot and You will then be able to partition and format normally within Windows.

in restrospect, in order to copy a win 7 img to a HP z240 TW.  4 points in total should be done:

(1)At the boot beginning, {Ctrl + I}, delete all RAID Volumes.

(2) In Bios,  Disable UEFI boot

(3) In Bios, System Options --> do not allow  {Configure RAID....]

(4) In Bios, Enable Legacy boot and disable secure boot
