Can't see 2 drives
Posted on 2004-08-23
on a recently acquired G3 I would like to reinstall OS 9, however I am having trouble with the drive configuration. depending on which ATA port on the motherboard I plug a device into I can only boot to that device. meaning having both a CDROM and HHD, i can boot to either but once the system has loaded I cannot see the other. both were working when I got the machine, but perhaps my fiddling has messed something up. I can boot to the original HHd but then i cannont see the CDROM, or I can boot to the CDROM but then I can't see the HHD. I've change the cables and confirmed that everything has power. is there something that I may be missing?
