doesn't work: DVDwriter&IDE Disk connected with 1 line
Jan 31, 2007, 1:43 AM
I just bought a mainborad - TopStar C61vm (all in one)
When I try to boot up from CD to install the WinXP on disk, there always shows " invalid disk..."
After unplugged the harddisk , the winXP bootable CD can boot up the system.
There're only one IDE interface on the board. And I have tried the following:
1. DVD Master HD Slave;
2. DVD Slave ; HD Master
3. DVD HD Cable Select
All these doesn't work...

did you check the boot priority so that the Optical was ahead of the HDD?

Did you use the hdd mfg install/fix program to format the hdd. You should be able to download it from the hdd mfg site and run it from a floppy.
