It took me months to figure out why it wasnt working on my system. Also which sata ports you are using will make a difference. For whatever reason JF will only see my primary channel. Also if you are on a 64 bit windows, keep in mind that you will have to fake sign portio64.sys and boot into test mode so that the required driver will run. If you have a raid setup, then that will also stop it from working. If you post your system specs, maybe I could help you out a little more.
