SS4200E - Format hard drives

I have a SS4200E that I cannot get to work.

 

I have tried;

 

no drives - just the DOM with the switch on "M"

 

one drive Seagate ST3500320AS (500 gig)

 

two drives Seagate ST3500320AS (500 gig)

I then created partitions on each drive, and formated each.

 

There was no data on either drive.

When formating should there be no partitions on the drive?

I understand no boot partition, but what about extended partitions?

 

Sorry but this is my third day of trying to get this to work. I have nothing but blue flashing light on the power.

I'd suggest you remove all partitions on the hard drive (primary and extended partitions) before you install it into SS4200-E. If you're using only two hard drives, also check http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/ss4200-e/sb/CS-028954.htm.
