here's one call for help from Italy!
With a fatal error on the motherboard of my PC
I'm now (temporarily) setting up an 10-years old Intellistation
(MPRO MT-M 6230 tower version). OS is Win XP prof.
Please see the illustration of the board.
Installed is a 80GB SATA HDD. A bit small,
therefore, additionally I will install my a old 250 GB PATA HDD.
Neither the IBM technical manual nor the user's guide tell exactly how to do this.
First, I used a SATA-PATA-Adapter (which worked well in my
old PC) connecting the drive to the second SATA connector on the board.
But the drive couldn't be found.
Second, I attached the PATA-HDD (as slave) to the IDE cabel and connecting it with
the primary IDE slot on the board. The drive was found, but now, no longer the
SATA boot drive!
Third, I tried the secondary IDE slot with HDD as slave and DVD-ROM as master.
The drive was found but not correctly: instead of the correct drive identification
appeared a strange string of letters (with spaces). The SATA boot drive works but
the added drive (naturally) not.
How can I fix the problem?
And is there a chance to add a third IDE HDD?
Many thanks for your help!
You have to specify a boot device in the BIOS and then save.
