So I have 2 computers. One with an SATA HDD and an IDE CD-R drive. and the other has an IDE HDD and An IDE CD Drive. Both working beautifully
I had to replace the SATA HDD with the IDE HDD but now it wont boot. Please check this out and let me know if anyone has a clue. I'm really at my wits end here
This is my first time trying to insert a url image I hope it works.
Thanks for any help whatsoever.
