I have 2 HDs in a SATA Raid0 configuration and a recently installed SATA DVD
writer worked fine straight away. But I've just put in a 3rd drive in the
last remaining SATA slot and it's invisible. All help and advice gratefully
True, but it can be difficult depending on the system. I have to repeatedly
hit the pause and space keys until I "accidentally" stop things at the right
moment in time. It can take many tries before I actually stop things where
For what it's worth, I have not had much success doing this using a USB
keyboard, most likely due to when the USB drivers get loaded on my system.
Experiment with Ctrl-Alt-+/- to see if your machine still has a
software turbo button - it isn't universal on modern machines by
any means. The plus and minus are the ones on the numeric keypad,
not by the backspace key. However, even if the system does still
support it, you may have to experiment to see how early in the boot
process it becomes operational since it may not be straight away.
