Primary Hd recognized as slaveLocked
When I boot my Windows XP Pro system, the bios reports that the Primary HD is not found, and then the Secondary Partition reports the correct HD. The system always boots properly and when I am in Win XP the Primary drive is reported correctly. Even in the registry. This system has intermitant problems… system errors when running IE 6. This is my daughters system and I cannot for the life of me figure out what is wrong with the bios. I have recently updated the bios (after problem was found) and this does no good.
This is a ASUS motherboard P4MV-XP system. The only hard drive is an 80 gig Western Digital which is partitioned into 40 gig partitions.
I teach at ITT Tech and I have talked to our administrator he says all of my devices should be set to cable select… is this pointing in the right direction?
