Re: Cannot boot in Slave mode
I have never heared of any hardrive being able to boot when it is set as slave, as the master is always the 'C' drive from which windows looks for the master boot record.
why, if you have only one hard drive is it set as slave?, it doesnt make sense.
No hard drive will boot up if there is no jumper cap on it, as the motherboard needs to know which hd is master and has the o.s on it.

while booting up it must be giving you an option to enter the cmos setup with hitting either f8 key or del key or f10 key. Just hit the key at the appropriate time and enter the advance setup in the cmos setup and go to boot devices and select the priority you wish. In some cases the hard drive and cd rom have jumper settings for putting them in master and slave mode. just read on the drive label and set your cd rom to master and your hdd to slave and you will be able to boot through cd and instal windows.
The board is probably good but I've seen this many times when folks try to upgrade old computers. The drivers included with XP aren't working on your machine. It's not working with W2K because when you formatted the HD with XP it removed the IBM label from the HD. You should use your recovery disks to restore the drive.
THE PROBLEM IS MASTER AND SLAVE CONFIGURATION .. MAKE YOUR BACK UP HD A SLAVE IT MAY BE A MASTER NOW..
AND IF ITS A MASTER MAKE IT SLAVE
IF IT STILL DOESNT WORK THE CONTROLLER IC ON MOTHER BOARD CAN BE FAULTY.
I don't think you can boot off of the ATA-133 so you will have to boot off of the IDE on the mobo and have the DVD drive jumpered cable select on the 2nd IDE. Boot that way to make sure the system boots. Shut down. Then instll the ATA-133 adapter with NO DRIVES on it and boot. The system should ask you for drivers for the new hardware. Intall the drivers. Shut down. Attach the new drives to the ATA-133. Reboot. You still might have to go into admin in windows and assign drive letters to the new drives. Anyway, if you are trying to boot off of a drive on the ATA-133 adapter, I don't think you can do it. I have mostly used Asus boards with Award Bios and there was no way to point the boot process to an add-on ATA Controller.
