I get in RAID utility but don't have any option to set anything. I pressed all numbers 1-4 but there is nothing I can do.
I asked ex owner about setting up the BIOS and, of course, he said he didn't touch it...

Looks like hitting
and then Enter should have made it show you the assignments.
Do you have another PC you can use to download stuff on? And a USB drive that you don't mind erasing?
If you have data on the drive that you don't have backed up you can try Hiren's:
There are instructions on the website to create either a bootable USB or if you have a CD/DVD burner you can burn a disk and then boot from it.
If you boot into Hiren's and then select the MiniXP if the drive is readable you can then copy any data you want to another USB or to your Toshiba. This is also a good way to tell if the BIOS is going to let you read the disk even tho Windows won't boot.
If there is no data on the SSD that you need then you can go directly to repairing/reloading Windows:
Chose Download Tool Now.
Use the instructions to create a bootable USB or DVD then boot from it. Try repairing the drive first if that doesn't work you can try to reload Windows.
It appears to see the drive OK. Go ahead and see if you can repair it.
Did you set the Boot order in the BIOS setup to read the DVD first? Also
Try setting the
CSM Support to . Always Enables UEFI CSM. (Default)
Boot Mode Selection UEFI and Legacy Allows booting from operating systems that support legacy option ROM or UEFI option ROM. (Default)
Yes I set the boot order in the BIOS...Changed boot mode selection to UEFI and Legacy then it worked.
Tried to repair PC but can't, it says startup repair couldn't repair your PC
If there is nothing you have to have on the SSD it's probably time to just try reloading Windows.
I've already backed up what I needed so I guess u suggest clean install ?
Before I do it can u please tell me which BIOS settings to keep, what r the best/optimal BIOS settings for this PC ?
