I recently added a 40GB Maxtor hard drive to my system, configuring it as a master on my primary IDE channel. An old 6GB Maxtor drive is set as the slave on the channel. My system boots fine when I first turn it on, but I get the following error message during the BIOS POST check on subsequent reboots:
"Hardware problem detected. Enter Power setup menu for details."
Processor: Intel Celeron Tualatin 1.3GHz
Motherboard: ASUS TUSL2-C
BIOS: 1014 beta 001
Primary (UDMA 100) IDE channel:
(master) 40GB 7200rpm UDMA 133 Maxtor Diamond Plus 9 6Y040P0 hard disk with 8MB cache
(slave) 6GB 5400rpm UDMA 33 Maxtor 90648D3 hard disk
Secondary IDE channel:
(slave) ASUS CD-S500/A 50x CD-ROM drive
The 1014 beta 001 BIOS is the latest beta release I could find on the ASUS website. I use it over the 1012 official release because the latter results in a microcode error on my processor.
I am not experiencing any data transfer problems or slowdowns when I just let the BIOS ignore the error by hitting F1. But I do wonder if I can make the error go away. I can't seem to trace the culprit on my own, so I'll appreciate any help that you guys can offer.
