so it's the CDROM drive also then, find out what the CDROM is then download the correct drivers from a site like www.driverguide.com, they are usually put in C:\Windows\System32
with the hard drive, did you accidently put in the jumper onto the wrong pins? because most drives have an option to limit the capacity with a jumper.

HI,

The cdrom is connected to ide port 2 and set to master.


I did not see nothing in the where I have to asign sata to or as ide port 1

When using a regular ribbon type ide drive and pluggin it into port 1, everything works fine. drive and cdrom get identified.


Thanks for you helping here I may add.
