Hdderase 3.3 and 4.0 unable to run on Asus Blitz with x25-m_g2_80gb

Esteemed Contributor III

I have been unable to run HDDErase 3.3 (self made boot cd) or 4.0 (using bootable ISO from ultimate boot CD). I am able to get into the start of the HDDErase program and go thru the disclaimer (pressing Y/N etc to get through the text message), but then it just hangs with a flashing underscore and not going into "menu" of the HDDErase.

I have tried different settings in BIOS, using different combinations of (Enhance, Compatible) and IDE mode. The x25-m_g2_80gb have both been flashed to the latest firmware and running windows 7 (in raid 0) without problems. I have the 2 ssd connected to the SATA port 0 and 1.

My only recourse is that my friend, who has the same setup (Blitz and X-25m ssd) was able to get HDDErase running by using an IDE to SATA converter and hooking up the SSD thrut the converter to the IDE port on the Asus Blitz motherboard.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
