I'm attempting the textbook tut via CD. I initially wanted to try the USB stick but for whatever reason it refuses to boot off of it, even though I select it to boot from it. I wanted to do the USB stick because I have a RAID1 setup on the ICH9R controller on my P35 motherboard and read that there may/may not be some issues with the controller having RAID enabled. Doing the USB method allows me to disable the the RAID1 and just shut off those harddrives while I attempt the flash.

What I've tried to do is, while the RAID *is* enabled, boot from the disc, plug the SATA cable in once I've reached the prompt, and then attempt a dSam. It immediately says "No Drive Connected/Found" or whatever the error is and either reboots or freezes immediately.

I'm using IPrep 101 v006.1. (It says v006.2 in the title bar, but v006.1 in the help menu).

Any suggestions? I'm not sure if the boot imaging of the USB stick is working correctly because I'm on Vista x64 and x64 cannot create 16bit boot images AFAIK. I could attempt doing it on an XP x32 VM but hadn't reached that far and figured it wasn't really the problem.

If I do leave it plugged in when I boot the PC, I am able to see the x360 drive perfectly fine in the BIOS.

I had a similar problem...are you plugging in at the 'disclaimer agreement' page where you press 'y' or after?

So why are you unplugging it?

I've been plugging it in when it hits the command prompt. After "Yes" and before "y". If that makes sense

The tutorial says to plug it in after it gets to the command prompt so that would mean it is unplugged when you boot the PC right?

Always just have mine plugged in and switched when I boot the PC.

Interesting.

I probably tried that anyway just for kicks but when I get home from work I will try it again.

Do you think having the controller set up in RAID will cause any issue? If it does I'll have to image the drives, take it out of RAID, do the mod, reimage, back to RAID...etc. Kind of a painstaking process if it is unnecessary.

Yea, still nothing when everything is plugged in when I reboot the PC.

Vista x64 isn't part of the problem is it? The SATA drivers are obviously x64 bit.
