OS = XP Pro SP2 w/all patches/updates as of 1 Dec 06
Mobo: GA - 8IPE 1000G [purchased in 2005]
Hard Drives: Channel 0 Master IDE = WDC 20GB; Channel 0 slave = 20GB Maxtor
Channel 1 Primary = WDC SATA 250GB, Channel 1 slave = Sony DVD-R/RW
Software: Symantec AV vewr 10.0.2.x
No other software installewds at this point
All mobo IDE, SATA, power source cable connections verified connected
I connect Primary IDE [OS disk] hard drive and can verify BIOS recognition and system starts fine.
However, when I connect the CHannel 0 slave drive BIOS recognizes it, but OS disk mgmt cannot see it, not even after disk re-scan performed or in My Computer and no errors show in Dev mngr.
So, I disconnect CHannel 0 slave drive and connect Channel 1 SATA drive - it is recognized by BIOS, but system hangs after post boot test and IDE drive recognition - boot process stops [no errors].
I then, disconnect SATA drive, verify connections, power - all is good, but same result on bot up.
1. There are jumpewr positiona avail on SATA drive, but I do not recognize the position choices - they are not listed as "Master; SL; CS", like an IDE drive --where do I place a jumper if I want the SATA disk to function as Channel 1 Master, with the DVD-R drive as Channel 1 slave [it has the IDE - to- SATA adapter kit on it and is plugged into SATA Slave position on mobo.
2. Why can't I get hte system to recognize the disk drives and get the IDE and SATA to work thru boot up and into usable disks? What am I missing?
Stuck on stupid here...thanks :)
