ATA/IDE boot problems
I just recently rebuilt my P4 in a 486 server case, and had have some boot problems with most of the drives. First and foremost, I have a 120gb Seagate HDD and a 40gb Maxtor HDD (Don't ever buy a Maxtor!). Well, the seagate boots fine but has a corrupt version on XP on it, as for the maxtor, the bios recognizes it but nothing can read it! Not even the win2k setup, I also get a disk I/O error before the setup starts. The win2k setup recognizes how big the maxtor is but says "Setup cannot read for disk". I've tried running the POS diagnostic tool for the drive but that cannot even recognize. Now, with all the drives out of my case except for a 6.4gb HDD and a 52x CD-RW. I tried to install win2k, I set the first boot device as the CDROM but the CDROM won't boot! I've tried win2k and XP but it doesn't seem to boot. I hope someone can help, I'm very frustrated...
