Overcoming a MAster vs slave problem
I have a built-in kind of cd rom drive in my case with one ide connector cable coming out of it.
If I connect the cd rom, it is connected as a slave drive, and my motherboard won't boot because a the secondary drive is a slave instead of master.
Normally this would be solved by using a jumper but I can't find a jumper on the cd rom drive to change this.
So how can I change this?
With one HDD and one CD drive; master of slave does not matter. It will search for the bootable drive unless your BIOS is set to boot from CD only which is odd.
1) Do you have a non-OS CD in the CD drive?
2) What kind of OS do you have?
Yes I also thuogth that this wouldn't give a conflict because there is one device on every IDE channel .
But my system won't boot to os because of this warning
There is no cd rom the cd rom drive and my os is windows 98 se
Bad IDE cable, often the case. Switch cable see what happens.
The cable is new and working (can see the device in bios) , but i can't change it because it is attached to the cd rom drive
Try switching which ide port it is plugged into on the motherboard.
