HELP! pc can't find primary master
 
What i did was:
-installed xfce for FreeBSD 5.3
-logged out
-tried to login via kdm, but computer crashed
-restarted (hardware reset)

While BIOS is loading it can't find Primary Master and asks me for boot diskette. Inside BIOS i can see only my second primary slave HD. As primary master i can see nothing (i have left it set to "auto").
I am no using a LiveCD, which i think cannot find both HD's. I think "dmesg" has a strange output.
Any ideas? Please help.:cry:

Open box.
Check IDE-cable.
Check power-cable.(to drive)

If those are OK and your BIOS still can't find your primary master , be prepared to pay tribute to the computer-store.(ie.-That'll be a new drive then.)

BajaNick 01-29-2005 08:17 PM

Are the drive jumpers configured properly on the back of the drive. Remember the second drive must be jumpered as slave and on the correct end of the ide cable.

kpachopoulos 01-30-2005 02:59 AM

I played around with my BIOS, restarted some times and the problem was fixed (i don't think it had to do with the BIOS however) The first time before it started booting right, the BIOS also complained, that it couldn't find the keyboard! I pressed F1 to continue and everything went smoothly. The next time i booted there wasn't any complain at all.
All these are very strange and i am still investigating. Could it be a problem with my motherboard?

BajaNick 01-30-2005 11:50 AM

How old is the MB? Try updating the bios firmware, if necessary. Go to the MB manufacturers website, Download the bios update and follow the directions carefully.:)

kpachopoulos 01-30-2005 02:27 PM

The m/b is about 3 years old, but could an old bios cause such a problem?

BajaNick 02-01-2005 09:41 PM

It could if the jumper is set to slave but if it was used previously as master then it probably would not. It does sound like its a bios or MBR problem.
