Thanks for the quick reply.
I've tried is but it doesn't seem to work. BTW the drive works great in XP, just that I can't use it for Ghost which is essentiall running DOS. The same oakcdrom.sys with the same config.sys/autoexec.bat works on my other machines/motherboards (e.g. AMD64 nForce4 etc. or P4 520 i915P/G). And it is not like the oakcdrom.sys didn't load, rather it loaded but it can't find the IDE device. I also put the drive one of those other motherboards and it worked just time. It seems to be the P35+ICH9 chipset that is causing some sort of incompatibility. Anyone have success doing this?
