To help you properly, I need the service tag number from your laptop because that will let me know what you really have for hardware. What is it?

Looks like someone added another drive before me
BIOS only has 2 settings under SATA Operation - RAID Automatic or RAID ON
It is set for Automatic

(It came from the manuals link of your support link I posted)
Turn the laptop OFF!!!
Open the service manual and click the link for removing the hard disk drives. There is a cover on the front bottom corner that covers both drive mounting positions. If there are, indeed, two hard disk drives, we need to be VERY CAREFUL! Don't touch them, put the cover on and post back.
If there is only one drive, we need to change something; but, I'll have to dig a little.
Do you have a legal Windows 7 product key?

I checked for 2 disks - yep
Rebooted - pressed Ctrl+F to get into the RAID settings
Deleted the Raid Array using number 3 (I think this deletes your data!)
Removed 1 disk anyway (cuz I wanted the other one)
Booted from Win 10 DVD and installed Windows - no complaints this time
