    These are the instructions I am following. The problem is when i run HDDHACKR it states no ATA drive is found! I do not have a laptop computer so took my old desktop computer removed all Hard drives and got it to boot up to USB and can hit DEL to go into Bios where I see First SATA is the drive. Found a utility to format to FAT32 but still can not get the Drive to be seen by HDDHACKR. Next step is to find a laptop to use as know the USB boot works. I appreciate your help and welcome any other suggestions.

    Have you disabled AHCI or set the SATA operation mode to legacy in your motherboards bios?

    That is the most common cause for Hddhackr not detecting a drive, it doesn't matter how the drive is formatted.
