Default Disable SATA Controller/Drives on Rampage Formula

Hi,

I sometimes need to disable the internal drives on my machine.
Reason: I also have an Adaptec eSATA Controller installed, which I use to
install "Test systems"
(eg. Windows 7, ...) to external drives and I don't want those systems to
see my internal drives.
Just disabling the drives in the BIOS does not help, during installation the
drives are found and
the installation wants to install a dual boot on the main drive.

At the moment I disconnect the drives manualy by removng SATA cables and
after finishing my installation I
plug them in again.

Any idea how that could be done?

Thanks in advance for your help

Best regards

Thomas

Set SATA Configuration to Disabled.
You have to use an IDE DVD drive, though.


Thanks in advance for your help

There should be a Hard Disk Drives setting under the Bios Setup Boot
menu. Moving the drive connected to the Adaptec controller to the top
of the list makes it the bootable drive, and Windows setup should put
the Windows system partition on this drive.
