ide driver problem, ide devices not found
Posted on 2003-03-26
I have trouble being able to setup my Epox 8RDA+ under win98se.
The following is my computer's setup:
-Adaptec SCSI RAID 2100s with latest BIOS booting a RAID 0 array of 2 x 18GB fujitsu HD's
-Primary master = Toshiba DVD
-Primary slave = Iomega ZIP
-Secondary master = CDR drive
-Secondary slave = Maxtor 60GB HD
All masters are setup at the ends of the cable and all jumper switches are correctly setup (no Cable select though)
APIC is disabled in BIOS, Hardware config works perfect under XP
Both IDE controllers have a exclamation mark under system, control panel.
currently using drivers: ESDI_506.pdr and IOS.vxd, INF file = \windows\inf\mshdc.inf
The properties window for each of the controllers says the following:
"The device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed (Code 10) Try upgrading the drivers for this device"
I started with a fresh installation of win98 and there does not seem to be any IDE drivers supplied with the nvidia nforce driver 2.0 for win98.
The only IDE device that appears on the system is the maxtor HD all the others are gone.
Any suggestions? maybe there are other ide drivers I could use
Oh BTW under, hard disk controllers, system, control panel
3 devices appear:
Standard dual PCI IDE controller
Primary IDE controller (Single FIFO)
Secondary IDE controller (Single FIFO)
The std dual pci ide cntroller uses both irq 14 and 15
primary ide uses irq 14
secondary uses irq 15
Tried a crazy thing by updating the drivers using the ide drivers from XP 2.03, but that only works with the standard dual pci controller and not for the other two and didnt do anything except change the name to NVIDIA IDE controller.
I will msg if I find a solution
maybe nvidia should provide ide drivers for win98
BTW sorry the question can only be valued at 50pts, but I just signed up and only have 75pts
