No spare Sata Cable - so we now use the optical cable and switch it to HDD to test?

88  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: I Need DC Input on: February 29, 2012, 07:08:02 AM
Okay - BIOS - SATA HDD not there but optical is!

Opticals are screwed in both sides, right? So need to remove both side covers from case?

Yes, that's correct - HDDs normally as well.

Also, the screws for the HDDs have a different thread to the screws for the opticals so keep them separate, otherwise you might end trying to use the wrong one for the device.

Duly Noted!

Mum prised off bay cover to make sure we had no metal plate to surprise us - nope, only a hole!  Grin

Now we are good to go - need a free and clear day - Wednesday will be D Day, or should I say 4wd Day?  Grin Grin
