I tried so many things including xp that booted from a CD rom disc but nothing worked as the hardware itself was faulty. I have even gone so far as removing the cmos battery and resetting the bios but the screen says its scanning for IDE drives and at the bottom says press F2 to enter setup. Google nLite im sure you will find it, there is also a guide on there site to help you on how to use the software. I’m not running two drives but it seemed I had to tell it to do RAID in the bios in order to get anywhere After I got the screen with 5 options. Also, make sure that you have set the jumpers as specified for two drives.
