I Need Help


Recommended Posts

I hope you guys can help.........

I have a Dell E510 with an A07 BIOS.

I have two SATA Hard drives

I only have 1 IDE channel, and when i try to put a dvd rom and a dvd writer on that channel,

it always converts one to PIO and the other channel is UDMA.

If i switch the drives, the PIO always stays on the Primary slave so it does not follow the drive it stays on the channel.

Ive tried unistalling the ide controller in the Hardware tab of system properities.

I have checked the BIOS and it has all drives on the "on" setting.

Now the only other thing is i get a messeges when i start the PC that states no drive found on primary slave channel and ask F1 to contuine or F12 to enter setup.

If i enter F1 it loads normal and it finds all drives but still stays in PIO mode.

HELP Please
