View Full Version : Secondary EIDE Controller
10-17-2000, 09:05 PM
I recently installed an HP 9110i CD-RW.I made it the master and my CD-ROM the slave and connected it to the Secondary EIDE COntroller. My machine refused to boot.It would get to the IBM logo,but no farther.A friend suggested leaving my CD-ROM out and just use the HP91110i making it the slave and connectied it to the primary EIDE Controller along with the Hard Driver. That works,but that is not an ideal setup. So my question is What do I have to do to get my secondary controller to work? Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks

Don't know if it'll work, but you can try going into BIOS and checking the settings for the secondary IDE channel, maybe turning LBA off will help. Sometimes it's listed as Large instead of LBA. Also look for an auto setting, that might do it. And set the CD ROM to master if you're only using one, check the settings and jumper them to master and slave if you use two.
If you had everything...Where would you put it?

Try swapping which drive is master and which is slave. Actually, first try to get one or the other working on the secondary; it could be disabled in the BIOS, or maybe the cable is bad.
