    Diskpart - How to change Bus Type from RAID to ATA

    I would like to change the Type and Location Path details from RAID to ATA

    This disk used to be part of a RAID set

    I had a look at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/...(v=ws.10).aspx
    The Location Path for ATA is PCIROOT(0)#PCI(0100)#ATA(C01T03L00)
    DISKPART> detail diskWDC WD30EZRX-00MMMB0Disk ID: {6A8930DA-C6C0-4BA4-B3B5-0E2DFB849515}Type : RAIDStatus : OnlinePath : 0Target : 5LUN ID : 0Location Path : PCIROOT(0)#PCI(1700)#RAID(P00T05L00)Current Read-only State : NoRead-only : NoBoot Disk : NoPagefile Disk : NoHibernation File Disk : NoCrashdump Disk : NoClustered Disk : No Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info ---------- --- ----------- ----- ---------- ------- --------- --------* Volume 1 E CD NTFS Partition 2794 GB Healthy

    Any assistance with the correct syntax would be appreciated

    Hi there

    If your HDD's are on a RAID controller and you are using Hardware RAID you'll need to get into the BIOS / SETUP menu for that particular card (and it might not be possible to switch it off unless you remove the RAID controller card).

    Assuming the HDD's are just connected "normally" to the computer -- there could be an entry in the standard BIOS to set the HDD controller (or Bus) mode to RAID / SATA.

    Once you've done that simply re-initialize and re-format the HDD's -- use command line it's easier and quicker --DISKPART , SELECT DISK CLEAN etc.

    Thankyou for the quick reply Jimbo45 - Just a few things to clarify:

    1) The disk comes from a different computer that used to be in a RAID 1 set
    2) The new computer BIOS is not set to RAID for the HDD
    3) Clean, Re-initailizing and Re-formatting doesn't change the information when running Diskpart>detail disk command

    so ......

    When I run Diskpart>detail disk there are 2 Properties I would like to change:
    1) Type: RAID >> change this to ATA
    2) Location Path: PCIROOT(0)#PCI(1700)#RAID(P00T05L00) >> change this to PCIROOT(0)#PCI(0100)#ATA(C01T03L00)

    What application and syntax can I use to achieve this?
