The ITE RAID aka GigaRaid is the last controller / raid entry in the list.
Highlight the RAID line that relates to this and change it - I think the
other value is ATA. On reboot, you should then see an additional
initialisation step with a rotating | character showing scan progress. If
you drive is detected it will appear in the list that pops up after about 20
You may need to switch off and on or do a hard reset after changing the
above setting for it to take effect.
