Ive just converted my system to a pure
SCSI device system.
I heard that disabling the IDE controller would make the system near 2x as fast.
Anyways... i disabled the primary and secondary IDE controller in BIOS, but win98 sec.edition still autodetects :
"Intel 82371AB/EB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller" and shows it with a yellow question-mark on it in the device manager.
How do i get rid of it for good ?
Ive tried removing it, but it just re-detects it and adds it again at next reboot.
When i do "Properties" on it it says :
"This device is disables because the BIOS for the device did not give it an IRQ (Interrupt Equest). (Code 29.)
You must enable the device in the BIOS. See your hardware doc.. blahblahblah".
I thought the idea of disabling it was to disable it so it dont show up on the device manager. Like ive disabled both COM ports, and they dont show up in the device manager.
My motherboard is "Abit BH6"
I appreciate any suggestions..
