i am trying to configure a new board in a machine. the machine won't recognise two disc drives daisy chained and cannot recognise a: drive. as a bit of a newcomer to all this i want to go through the motions and have the internet and a cd burner. if i could get the pc to recognise a: drive then i could probably create a boot disc. the pc was using a 486 board and the upgrade is to first mainboard fr33e running a 1000 athlon.

Start with the basics. Remove everything but the video board and keyboard, and get it to recognize the BIOS. Make sure the BIOS parameters are setup correctly.

Next, attach the floppy drive only and see if you can get that working.

Finally, attach only the hard disk and see if you can get the BIOS to recognize it.

Solve one problem at a time, plugging the whole system together and trying to figure out what's going on is frequently very frustrating. :)
