I already did all the solution posted here for the power calibration area error problem.
I installed new os and still same problem. I tested on other pcs and still same problem and i changed it from slave to master at IDE2 and still nothing.
so i decided to change my firmware to the default .
but the FlashBin 1.44 from here force me only load the firmware 1.m1 i couldn’t choose a bin file . so i downloaded the original optirac firmware utility from the official site but i got this msg (Target AD-5107A IS NOT found correctly) .
I really hope someone can help me here
