Installed SSD but...

So I recently bought the OCZ vertex 4 128gb and installed it today. I unhooked my previous sata hdd, and installed windows on the SSD. After installation was complete, I hooked the old hdd back up, so that SSD was in the first sata port(sata 1), HDD(sata 2) and disc drive(sata 3). After hooking the hdd back up, and booting up, I'm now prompted with this screen


Only in mine, it says Intel Rapid Storage, and it shows my two drives. It doesn't linger at the screen for very long, and there are otherwise no problems. It boots up fine. I'm just wondering why its now prompting me with that screen on boot up, and if its possible to make it go away.

Any ideas?

Do you have another OS installed on a different drive that you plugged in after installing the OS on your SSD?

Perhaps this is a version of a boot manager and its detecting multiple OSs and waiting for you to make a choice. I think there's an option in the BIOS to disable this - try going through your BIOS.

You have RAID turned on in the BIOS. Change it to AHCI and that screen should go away.

Another point is that TRIM maybe don't work when RAID is enabled. One more. Did you connect your SSD to another port than the internal Intel ports?
