Can i just say thankyou in advance for any help anyone can offer me on problems i am experiencing.
I recently bought a 74gb raptor drive 10000 rpm sata, i use an abit is7-g mb and with just the sata hdd connected everything is fine i installed the driver via f6 when loaded xp and is ok, problem comes with trying to use ide cd and dvd drives and also using a ide hdd for storage.
with the storage when i connect the ide drive which is a maxtor 150gb the computer tries to reboot from this drive rather than the sata drive, and have tried various changes in bios but none have worked.:-|
with regards to the cd and dvd drives which are both plextor models windows recognizes them but when i insert disks desktop freezes untill i take disks out, have uninstalled in device manager and reboot so windows installs them but problem still there. problem i think is with the sata drive as when running ide as master hdd all works fine including cd,dvd.
thank in advance
