bios tells me atapi drive incompatible
Posted on 2003-10-22
My primary master hard drive cannot be recognised by BIOS.
On boot, no drive whatsoever is recognised. I go to BIOS.
In BIOS there is an option to autoconfigure the Hard drive parameters. I try this, but the answer I get is "Primary Master - not installed".
I try to configure all drives automatically, which is another BIOS feature. Again "not installed" is the answer.
I check the jumper settings on the harddrive. It is set to the default correct settings for a single drive master.
It is probably irrelevant, but the OS is XP Pro (but not for much longer!)
Appreciate any help
