Default Little bit of trouble with an OLD system.

Okay, I'm fixing up this old Pentium 1 system I was given. But I've got a little problem. The computer will boot with anthing/everything buy a HARD DRIVE plugged into the IDE. Any combination of IDE devices with a Hard drive attach will cause the system to lock up before the boot sequence. I've tried another hard drive, and the same thing happens. Tried another IDE cable, same thing happens. I can hear the hard drive spin slow down (but not stop) when it locks up. Anyone know what's going on?

sounds like the ps cant handle the voltage load, plus an old p1 system has an ide limit to below 32gb, so try a 3gb if u got one(i got like 5)
