Bios is showing something concerning a connection. During the POST I see: IDE Channel 0 Master:
IDE Channel 0 Slave : None
IDE Channel 1 Master: CD/DVD player
IDE Channel 1Slave: None
*note IDE Channel 0 Master doesn't say--anything.
both the DVD drive i swapped in an HDD were set to Master so it only recognized the DVD drive not the HDD
Maybe this is the problem? The DVD/CD player is IDE and the HDD is SATA. As far as if BIOS is recognizing the HDD, I'm not really sure.
