How to remove my disk as Intel Recovery Volume?




I would like to remove my HDD as Intel Recovery Volume. How?


Currently my HDD is set as 'Current Read-Only State 'Yes from Disk Part.


Was able to make Disk Cache to No but eventually it returns back.


Could not open POST as well. CTRL key + I does not work.
