I have an HP8530 laptop that currently has two 250GB drives in a RAID 0 configuration. I'm trying to replace these two drives with a 250GB solid-state drive plus a 500GB drive (with no RAID of course).
I've installed Windows on the SSD, and I can connect it via E-SATA and boot from it. But if I replace the two internal drives with the two new drives, I get "Invalid startup drive".
In the BIOS, I've tried switching SATA Device mode from RAID to AHCI or IDE, but no dice.
I'm guessing that the RAID controller isn't happy about having two differently-sized disks - any thoughts how I can make this setup work?
(HP RAID documentation here, FWIW)
