How to get rid of Ultra 100 BIOS detection?
Posted on 2003-11-18
Every time I boot, the following is displayed before loading Windows (without the quotes):
"Ultra 100 (tm) BIOS version 18.104.22.168 (Build 43)
(c) 1999-2001 Promise Technologies Inc. All rights reserved.
The detection takes about 10 seconds, and then this is diplayed:
"Ultra 100 Bios is not installed because there are no drives attached."
After that, Windows continues to load. I want to get rid of it, because it's becoming really annoying to wait every time for something I apparently don't use. I checked the BIOS settings, but couldn't find anything useful. I don't know what this Ultra 100 thingy is or should do. I don't use RAID or SCSI (if that has got anything to do with it).
I'm running WinXP Pro + SP1 on the following system:
ASUS A7V-266-E DDR, AGP4x/PRO UDMA/100, Via Chipset
Amd Athlon XP 1600+ 1,40 GHz XP
Asus V7100 PRO T Geforce 2 MX 64MB AGP
Memory DDR 512MB PC266
40 GB IBM 7200 RPM IDE Udma 100
20 GB Maxtor 92049U6 IDE
