The Blue One Is The Only One The System Will Recognize. It's A Jumper By One Of The Black Sockets, Do That Suppose To Be Changed.

The Hard Drives Are Western Digital   Caviar SE 16   SATA  (Serial ATA High-Speed Storage)

Need Help,

Thank You

Hello,

No, do not change the jumper.

You need to enter the BIOS settings and turn on the hard drive channels that you will be using. emoticon.Yes.title

Thank You

Went Into Setting And Turned On Socket # 1 Which Was The Wrong One. After Taking A Second Look, It Was Socket # 2 That Needed To Be Turned On And Now I Am All Set.

Thanks Again
