Try switching 0 and 1 drive (C: and D:) to the secondary IDE cable,then switch
secondary devices to primary,see what results come from it.If none are
you probably have a bad controller,you can try locating the controller in
mgr.,then select,update drivers.Or go to mfg web site to see if any exist,P
based board is somewhat obsolete.
