We're talking about the same drive that was mentioned in this thread, but because of the different nature of this topic, I am choosing to make this thread instead. Okay so in short, I have the hardware that I should need to be able to flash the thing. My main computer with a 680i SLi motherboard has native SATA ports on it. I also got the VIA SATA card connected to a different computer. In both cases though, as I am setting up to go run jungleflasher and get things started, I can't do it. Why? On the 680i (main) system, the thing hard locks up as soon as I plug it in. It doesn't matter if I've enabled or disabled eSATA functionality on the BIOS, and even if I disable eSATA and boot up with the drive turned on from the get-go, it even freezes solid on POST. Not even ctrl-alt-del will get me out of it. On the system with the VIA card, going to My Computer, it then hard locks there, and I can't get any further response from the system. So just what am I doing wrong here? And what can I do so I can go get this done already?
