Strange Maxtor disk problem
Posted on 2008-06-26
i have a very strange problem with this maxtor IDE disk model 91301U3 capacity 13 Gb
if i set the jumper to MASTER or CABLE SELECT it has following problems :
-it takes about 30 seconds to detect /or show the ide disk in the post screen, or to get into the BIOS setup
-it displays normally, proper model, size, etc...
-it does NOT boot from disk, but displays "Reboot and select proper boot device"
IF I SET THE JUMPER TO SLAVE, everything is normal (fast bios access, it boots without problems after displaying "No master ide drive found")
when i try this with 2 other Maxtor 40 GB disks, they work normal with Master /slave settings
i am upgraded to the latest bios version, and try the default settings also
Any ideas ?
