I have set the first boot device as the USB drive and have tried to boot Hiren's Boot Disk. But when I boot it went to the American Megatrends Screen which said:
AMIBIOS (C) 2008 American Megatrends, Inc.

Press F1 to run Setup
Press F12 for BBS POPUP
Initializing USB Controllers . . Done.
USB Device(s): 2 Keyboards, 1 Mouse, 1 Hub, 1 Storage Device
Auto-Detecting AHCI PORT 0..IDE Hrd Disk

S.M.A.R.T. Capable and Status BAD
Auto-Detecting USB Mass Storage Devices ..
Device #01: TSSTcorp CDDVDW *hispeed*
AHCI Port0 Device Error
Press F1 to Resume
When I pressed F12, it said that bbs popup selected but remained like that and when I disabled SATA controller in the setup, it did boot but could not detect the HDD.
I have tried removing the drives but there are problem with the screws and also is it a risk to do it?
