My HD is on my 3rd IDE channel.. That is the only IDE channel that it will be recognized on. But whenever I put my DVD drive on my primary it works like a charm.
Rundown on my system right now
Primary IDE: DVD
Secondary IDE: CDRW
Third IDE: HD
Oh this is an IBM40 GB UATA100 drive with a LiteOn CDandDVD drive with a Windows 2000. Plus it decided that it didnt want to read my E partition when I first booted.. I did a scandisk and the scan came back as the HD was damaged. I didnt know what the heck was happening so I did scandisk after scandisk because all my work was on my E drive. After the 5th time I decided to bite the bullet and actually format the HD. I started the format and all of a sudden boom BSOD I am like oh no what just happened.. I rebooted it and No OS could be found. Even the WindowsXP CD couldnt find my HD on the primary controller. I got my computer back up and running along with all of the data that I had thought I originally lost... But my HD still wont run on anything but my 3rd controller. ODD..
