Question about Abit NF-M2S Motherboard
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.
I tried to put ide with SATA and got the same I think IDE and SATA do not mix unless you know how to set up.
Easiest and cheapest in long run use one type of drive

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
you will have to have master with slave set up
you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?
Hope this helps
