Hi,

Need a little bit of clarity here so I can understand better. If you have only one drive on the secondary IDE slot, then you need to have the drive jumpers set to master and have it on the END of the ribbon cable. Is that the way you are set up? Please note, there is nothing wrong with using the IBM on the secondary, but if alone, it MUST Be set to master and in that position on the cable.

I see no reason also why the IBM and the Maxtor won't co-exist on the same cable......assuming that you have the Maxtor jumpers set at Master (please note that most drives come new with jumpers set to Cable Select), and the IBM jumpers set to slave....with the maxtor on the end of the cable and the IBM on the middle of the cable. Anyhow, thought I would throw that in if you decide to move the IBM to the primary slave position. If that does not work, then try both of them on the CS on the jumper settings.

Hi,

Can't look a gift horse in the mouth. Regardless of what fixed it, darn, it is up and running and that is good news. Have a great evening and let us know if we can help further.
