I was using a Sandisk usb thumb drive as a readyboost drive in windows 10. I got an "imminent drive failure" message from smart drive, and removed it in windows 10 as a readyboost drive and in device manager, then physically removed the drive. However the warning still appears and the drive is still listed in the HP Bios. How can I remove the nonexistent drive from the hard drive list in the bios?
