Question about ECS 945GZT-M (V1.0) Motherboard
From one boot to the next my XP fails to detect my hard drive as Primary Master.
My HD is now listed as IDE Third Master.
I have not changed anything.
Went into BIOS - everything set to auto-detect but still will not recognize my HD as Master. The setup is about 8 months old.
My first thought is the cables have been moved or the drives moved. Maybe the jumper has fallen off the back of the drive (highly unlikely, but possible) or maybe a cable has come loose. It can't hurt to reseat all the cables and check the jumpers to see that all are correctly jumpered as master and slave.
herdex may not have the same problem, but will email this suggestion to him.
