installing IDE HD on mobo with SATA HD?
I have an asus p4p800s, with a 120G SATA hard drive installed with WinXP.
My Secondary IDE is used by my CDR.
I have an empty Primary IDE.
I would like to install an IDE hard drive, and use it as a slave, while booting from my 120G SATA.
The IDE already has WinXP installed, and the pins are set to Slave.
Problems I am having:
I installed the IDE drives into the Primary IDE port. When I start up, my bios detects all drives, but for some reason, I cannot select the SATA drive as a bootable device anymore.
When I attempt to boot Windows, I get an error saying "Windows could not start properly".
I can select "Safe Mode, Start Normally, etc." No matter which selection I make, the computer reboots (like hitting reset or something) and starts all over again, and same error comes up.
