Bios load CD roms as USB mass storage
Posted on 2005-04-11
When I booted up a workstation today into Windows 2000, I got messages that I had improperly disconnected 2 USB devices. I clicked ok on both windows and found that I no longer had CD rom drives (2 in system).
I upgraded bios to latest Intel and Cleared NVRAM. Went into bios and both drives showed on IDE channel 2.
rebooted and noticed bios recognized as USB mass storage devices. In windows again got disconnected USB messages again. One other thing, Unless I clear NVRAM, the drives are not seen as IDE at all.
