I bought my laptop, the MSI GT72 Dominator Pro 2QE, 3 years ago and it came with 4 128GB SSD's in RAID. I finally decided to get rid of the RAID by disabling it in the bios and switching to AHCI. Then I formatted all four partitions and installed Windows 10 on the first one. That all went well and I just finished getting everything all set up. However...I've noticed that in Event Viewer I'm getting the error "The device, \Device\Harddisk1\DR1, has a bad block." I decided to run chkdsk in read-only mode and it found no problems. Also, every time Windows starts up, I get a notification from Intel Rapid Storage Technology saying that something is wrong with my drive but it won't tell me what.
I'm not all that concerned about the health of my SSD. I used Crystal Disk Info to verify and it said that they were all in good shape. I'm assuming it's freaking out because of the old RAID setup and I think I may have forgotten to delete a partition that was associated with the RAID but I can't be sure. What should I do to stop it from pestering me about this?
EDIT: The problem is a lot worse than I thought actually. Windows can't initialize my 3 SSD's because it still thinks they are in raid and is saying they are 512GB. Also, booting into Linux, it didn't even detect the other 3 SSD's. I never unlinked the array in intel's Rapid Storage Technology, should I just put it back in RAID in the bios, reinstall Rapid Storage Technology, unlink the RAID there and then reinstall windows again?
