My brother has a Dell machine (not sure which one but will post spec at a later time)
He had a few viruses on his machine and he wanted me to remove them for him. I took his drives out of his machine and plugged each one into my machine (which i use purely for this purpose). I have on this machine the following installed
AVG full version
ZoneAlarm Full version
I ran each of these tools on each drive and found a few viruses/trojans and cleaned them up.
i then returned the harddrives into his machine (in the next room) and when i boot up the computer i get a screen which displays all of the SATA devices i have installed in the machine ie: dvd drive, dvd drive, HD1, HD2
But under each HD i get a message similar too "device is controlled by a raid bios" and the screen just sits there and nothing else happens.
i tried to enter BIOS by fitting F2 - it says "entering setup" but then goes to the above screen instead.
Any ideas what i have done? i have tried to boot each drive seperately, i have also changed over that SATA cables. im not sure what to do next.
Seeing as i cannot get into BIOS should i clear the CMOS??
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
