I am putting together a system for a buddy. I salvaged his old Maxtor HD and was going to put it on IDE2 as master for the Windows Swap file. But the BIOS does not detect the harddrive. When I put it on the UDMA IDE1, it works just fine. The CD-ROM (Lite-On) is detected fine on IDE2 as either master or slave (does not matter). What is the deal here? IDE1 is reserved for the WD 80GB UDMA HD, IDE2 I'd like Master = Maxtor HD and Slave = CD-ROM.
I flashed to latest Bios, checked and exchanged cable, etc. To no avail! This is driving me nuts and has cost me the whole afternoon!
Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated!
