Boot off IDE with SATS drives present

All worked fine with 2 SATS drives.
Now I have added an IDE drive and tried to boot off it and I get a quick flash of blue screen and reboot.
If I boot off the SATS, I see the IDE drive just fine.
Please advise,
Thanks,
Mark.

GA-EP41-UD3L problem with SCSI/IDE


Sounds like the motherboard bios is only capable of booting from drives connected to the motherboard's ide connector and not additional / or external ide connectors. Looks like you would have to have 1 HDD and the CDRom Drive on the built in ide connector and the other hard drive on the extra ide connector you added. Although that would probably stop the other HDD from booting. Have you thought about putting both operating systems on the same drive. I do it all the time.

Adding ide drive to a sata boot p4p800x xp Problem - ASUS P4P800-X Pentium Motherboard the system would not find ANY boot device


GaRoMo, 2 things. One change the pin on the IDE to a slave. Two open your bios. Asus board press the delete key every two sceonds untill the bios main menu opends. Go to BOOT section & make sure you have the SATA drive to boot. Your IDE should not be listed. Thats it.

NI8 SATA DVD Drive compatability


You must have added the SATA drive after setting up the IDE. If both drives are using the same os this will not function. Ony one drive can have the os on it. All SATA's are seen as a master.
To correct this problem, disconnect the IDE drive. Hook up the SATA drive. Again if the SATA has the os on it everything will run. Change the jumper on the IDE and set it as a slave. Hook the IDE up. Enter the bios & do not list the IDE in the boot to section. Problem solved. While in windows, format the IDE drive.
You do not want windows thinking you want a dual boot system.
So you understand, in the bios -boot settings this is how things should be listed.
Boot device 1 Sony Optiarc DVD drive
Boot device 2 WD raptor SATA, In-stall your os to this drive
