So on my computer I have two SSDs raided together as my main drives and two 1TB drives for my additional storage. When I first build it, it ran blazing fast and only read from the SSDs for my startup. I recently formatted, and since then, the computer always starts up the hard drives, whether during start-up or coming out of sleep mode. Before, it only did it when I accessed the drive.

It's a minor annoyance, at best. I lose an extra 5 seconds or so coming out of sleep mode. Is there any way for this to be changed? Thanks in advance!

You formatted the SSD or the HDD? Did you change anything else (like SATA ports, BIOS or Windows settings)? If you disconnect the HDD, can Windows still boot?

I did a fresh format of everything except the HDDs (backup info). SATA ports and BIOS settings remained the same (except some changes because I added an extra 6 gigs of RAM). Windows was installed completely fresh. And disconnected, it does start up without them.
