Updating escd phoenix award bios 6 0pg
BTW, I did read what you did last night, but didn't find if you had the CD/DVD drive set as master on that secondary ribbon cable. If it is the only one on there, it must be set to MASTER and on the end of the ribbon cable. and my wife will be surprised i get back home early :-)) yes, you're correct i have two cd-rom devices but i now use/attach the dvd only (because it can burn).

I am assuming from what you said that you have only the two drives (maybe I missed one in reading), is that correct? If you have only the two, then make the Maxtor the Master (jumpers set like that) on the primary IDE connector, and put in on the end of the ribbon cable.
Some motherboards have a BIOS which allows you to delete the ESCD information from the BIOS after an older legacy card has been removed from the motherboard.
You will also find additional information regarding ESCD at this .
however i'm still stuck up to it and when it says "Boot from CD: " i inserted my OS or that cutepartitionmanager cd and it would end up "LBA out of range..." sometimes just plain "Disk read error..
