It would really help to know why the second drive is raw to begin with. Was it ever formatted?

yeah, the 2nd drive was formated from an old os, i threw onto my comp for the extra space, not running am os on it, just space.. i just want to remove the checking scandisk thing from the boot up...

...Then it's not really "raw". Do you have any data on it right now?

Try running CHKDSK from within Windows, perhaps using the Command Prompt. Let it finish running, and see what happens.

If you don't have any data on it, you might just be able to reformat the drive...

yeah it has data on it,, but i can easily take it off, and put it onto my original drive,, no i tried running the scandisk within windows, but i get the same error, as i do if it boots up.
