When installing Windows, you are offered to install a "Third party" device.

That's where Raid comes into the equation..If you only have one HDD (or even 2)

I would not be concerned...The route to stop the nagging is to enter your BIOS screen and disable the RAID option.

If you have 3 HDD's then it may be worth considering a re-installation.
