Windows will not start with slave present
Posted on 2003-03-01
Friend of mine has built a new computer for himself.
Elite K7S6A Motherboard
AMD XP2100+ Chip
80gb IBM Deskstar
512mb pc2100 ram
He wanted to copy some files from my drive,but when we connected my drive to his computer it would not boot past the the screen where the green line runs along the screen.
We tried all different combinations of jumper settings and IDE's none of which make any difference.
He has a 6.4gb drive out of his old computer and that is recognised ok.
When started in safe mode my drive (seagate) seemed to be seen as a cd drive!!
Have looked at bootlog and the first driver it does not load is "ACPI UNIPROCESSOR PC"
But the one that seems to be causing most problems is afd.sys (says did not load over and over again)
Any ideas please??
