Has anyone come across this before.
I am building a PC for a young lady coming to live back in our village, using parts generously donated.
Got an M810L motherboard and fitted it to the PC tower case.
It has 256M installed on the board to start with (Soldered chips) so installed a further 128 Mb to bring it to 384Mb.
Installing a hard drive and a CD drive. Hard drive goes as PriMaster, CD drive goes as SecMaster, except Bios doesn't see the CD drive. However, change round to CD drive PriMaster and hard drive to SecMaster, Bios sees them both.
Boot up on a floppy for testing purposes and the hard drive is drive C and the CD drive is drive D.
I know all the connections are where they should be originally because I followed the book.
Anyone explain this strange phenomenon....?
