connect to terminal, dont take off pcb. ctrl+z then F,,22 then m0,6,2,0,0,0,0,22 Thanks for the quick reply. Tried it now, got same result as when i tried m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22. Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs Any more ideas? Some info commands that could help understand what's going on??
Gradius/Aviko, Firstly thanks for your efforts on this issue. I performed all the steps as in the first post (Had BSY problem) . after last command F3 T>m0,2,2,,,,,22 (enter) the response i get is only 2 lines instead of 3 and says completed successfully in 0 seconds. when i connect the drive to SATA, it's now recognized by BIOS, SMART test passes ok, but: 1. Can't boot from drive. 2. Can't install OS on drive, OS installation can't find and drives. 3. when connecting as secondary drive, I can see the drive in the device manager, but drive doesn't show up in active drives. in all cases computer is extremely slow, and takes a long time to boot. Any ideas?
