Hey Gurer's busy with school haven't been here lately! Whats up?! I will return! Okay, first my configuration is as follows: I have a MSI KT3 Ultra 2 w/ 2 IDE UDMA 100 controllers (no raid) 40 gigabyte IBM Deskstar 7200rpms (udma 100) 256mb DDR266 Geforce FX 5200 12x10x32 Iomega Burner 44X CD Rom AMI Bios w/ latest MSI Updates Well, I enable PCI IDE Busmaster in my bios and it dosn't detact any bootable Harddrives. It detacts the drive itself, but there is no booting. Even if I try to select the drive to boot- still no go. I have Windows XP Pro w/ the newest VIA Hyperion 4.49 drivers. For my actual cables, I have the CDRom drives on the secondary channel at their respective modes (ie slave, master). For the harddrive it is on solo with Cable Select and a round Vantac cable. I have tried everything! In windows I have messed around and with the physical cable. It is still stuck on PIO mode Any help will be appreciated!
