Is it safe to remove WD Dynamic Drive Overlay?
Posted on 2004-08-11
Here the deal. I have two WD 250GB hard drives installed and running as Master and Slave. I installed these drives while running Win98SE as the OF/S. I have since upgraded my MB, CPU and O/S to Asus K8V SE Deluxe & Athlon 64 3000+ with Win2000Pro O/S. Everything is running perfect, however, when the system boots up there is a screen that tells me that the Dynamic Drive Overlay is present. My current BIOS will support 250GB drives without the overlay.
I have the instructions from WD on how to remove DDO from the hard drives. The question is, will the system recognize the drive and data without reformatting? (it would be difficult to backup two 250GB drives.
