Dell XPS 420 will not boot

Hi, Phill, and wonder if Darrin is online?
Darrin, Iv tried a number of times to use the link in #134, however every time I try to create a bootable USB, following their instructions, all I get is a request to purchase other products, and for a license No.
So, a suggestion to consider:
I disconnect the seagate drive,
reconnect the WD drive in place of the Seagate, that is using the seagates cable into the SATA 0 location currently used by the seagate, and we start again, your opinions please?

Darrin was around a while ago and will most likely be back pretty soon.
There is no link in #134 but if you want to wipe the Seagate HDD while you wait you can use DBAN on a USB thumb drive, see info here be sure not to choose the autonuke option as it will wipe all HDDs and thumb drives.

I think we need to start at your bios. Do you remember how you access the bios by pressing the F2 key. Once in the bios use the key combination Ctrl + I. This will open the raid setup. Once there select the option to Delete Raid. Send picture if you need help.
After that we can setup the bios correctly.

Yes should be straightforward, come out of everything and reboot
I'll tell you when I'm done.
