I had Dell XPS 8300 Desktop & had bought & Installed Windows-7 ( Ultimate ) on it's 500 GB HDD.
I gave that system to my relative except Hard Drive.
Now I bought Dell T-7500 Workstation with only DOS installed on it's hard drive to save some money & because I already have Windows-7 ( Ultimate ) DVD.
I took out the hard drive with DOS from the workstation & replaced it with the hard drive that I had in XPS with Win-7 already installed.
I then tried to boot it in the workstation but it wouldn't boot & gave error messages.
So I formatted the OS Partition & fresh installed Windows-7. Now it does load Windows -7 but first it goes thru some other commands as follows when I start the system.
Dell SAS 6 Host Bus Adapter BIOS
MPTBIOS 6.22.03.00 ( 2008.08.06 )
Press Ctrl – C to run SAS Configuration Utility
Searching for Devices at HBA 0…..
Dell MPT Boot ROM Successfully installed
Then it loads Windows-7.
All of above happens on its own, I don't touch anything.
So what is going on & what do I have to do get rid off those initializing commands ? I have never had this happen to any previously owned Dell systems.
Also I haven't installed any drivers yet but Sound, Video & Internet does work.
Do I need to install any drivers & if yes, which ones ?
