I have just jointed a new hard disk to a 486 motherboard and looks fine.
But after I join MotherBoard-CDrom-TheHardDisk (in the order) when switch on the PC no noise, no "busy" light from the CD rom and then an error occured: failure hard disk (80)
(I have tried different jumper setting for the hard disk.)
Only join the CD to the motherboard: no "busy" light when switch on the PC. If no ied (or ide or ...) jointed but only the electricity input line jointed, the busy light appeared.
Do I need to set something in the Setup for the CD rom? How?
Can you help?
