I flashed my Samsung drive a while ago with another PC that I had to 4.2 without a problem, but now I wanted to prep my PC which is a MSI PCI-E and three PCI slots to do some flashing for myself and a couple of friends. Now the motherboard has also 4 SATA slots and the chipset is VIA 6410, but I tried a lot of things but couldn't get the controller to recognize my drive, so I decided to buy the 6421 and plugged it in the last slot to the most outer part of the board. Still no joy, I tried the ten second trick and also the 0800 disc.
If I go into the bios I can do a couple of things, but just don't know what the right setting is to let those bastards recognize my drive.
I can disable onboard RAID
I can enable and disable IDE busmastering ( don't know what this does )
I can put the IDE/ATA controls on compatible, which gives me the choices of SATA only, PATA only, SATA first, PATA first or I can put it on enhanced which gives me the choice to put it on IDE, RAID or AHCI ( don't know what that is either )
So please anybody tell me what to do to make it recognize the drive, also when I try mtkflash read it gives me no drives found with everything unplugged except the SATA controllers.
Thanx in advance and hope somebody can give me clue.
