Posted on 1999-11-22
I am trying to add a cdrom to a gateway 486 with a 212 mg western digital hard drive.I get into the bios to add the second ide drive but it dosen't show any type of cd-rom. The mother board only has one ide controller on it and the bios shows two ide controlls.the first being tghe 212hard drive the second is the slave i am trying to add.i have the hard drive set as master and the cdrom set as slave. when i boot up the machine stops at a code of 120 and just blinks. if i take the cdrom off it boots up all the way.How do i get this cdrom to work?
