Question about Intel D945GCCR Motherboard
I hsve two HD drives. One connect woth IDE with the CD drive. The seconds HD is a SATA drive. The bootup preference is boot from CD or boot from SATA. However, the IDE HD drive is stuck at right after the CD drive. How to setup correct drive in sequence (in the BIOS maybe?) so I do not need to press F10 to select?
If you want to boot from the IDE HD drive then you should get into BIOS and set it as the first boot device, followed by your SATA drive and CD drive. That should do the trick.
Hope this helps,

Tips for a great answer:
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup IDE-0 means Pri master ?
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter check to make sure the first boot device is set to your hard drive
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem
a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal paste and dust free and is securely seated
make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated with no dust in sockets also Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
hope this helps
