I have a machine running Win2k service pack 3 and everytime I reboot it the "Write cache enabled" for my hard drive turns off by itself, crippling the performance. Anyone now of a way to fix this?

System:
Asus P2B-LS
IBM 40GB ATA/66 HD


Note: I have the latest BIOS update from Asus

The hard drive is ATA/66 so it definitely supports it. I don't think the motherboard supports it, but regardless I'm only using it at ATA/33 which i know both board and drive support.

I have heard that the problem could be that active directory on win2k servers and write cache enabled cannot co-exist... Does that sound correct?

The P2B is an intel 440BX based board... According to the intel site, the newest storage drivers for this board are included with Win2k
