Installed Ultra ATA/133 40 GB Maxtor HD. System hung on boot. The Maxtor instructions suggest installing an ATA adapter card. I installed a SIIG UltraATA 133 PCI which was detected by system and installed the driver. Cabeled 40 GB Maxtor, set to master, to the SIIG card in IDE port #1. The new drive is supposed to show up in My Computer, but it doesn't.
The system BIOS is set to boot to A, CDROM, C. Currently all that is shown is A,C,Q(CDROM), and R(CD-RW). I don't know how NEC does this. There is nothing in the Autoexec.bat or the Config.sys to accomplish this.
My computer is an NEC Ready 9909. It has the Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG. BIOS ID: 06/02/1999-SiS-620-2A6ING5AC-00.
