Hard drive in primary channel showing in secondary channel
Hi, I have an 80GB Maxtor drive set as master in the primary channel, but in Mandrake 9.1 Control Center it shows in the secondary channel. My setup is:
Onboard VIA VT8367 Primary master: Maxtor 6Y080PO (hde)
Onboard VIA VT8367 Primary slave: free
Onboard VIA VT8367 Secondary master: Asus S520/A CD Drive (hdg)
Onboard VIA VT8367 Secondary slave: free
CMD-0649 IDE Controller Primary master: WD400BB-75CLB0 (hda)
CMD-0649 IDE Controller Primary slave: free
CMD-0649 IDE Controller Secondary master: LITE-ON LTR-16102B (scd0
CMD-0649 IDE Controller Secondary slave: free
I have Windows Me, Windows 2000 and Mandrake 9.1 installed in the Maxtor drive. Win Me runs OK, all drives at full DMA modes and in their respective channles, but the drive acts funny under Windows 2000 and Mandrake 9.1. In Windows 2000, it shows in the Secondary channel and sets to PIO mode although the "Use DMA if available" option is set. And in Mandrake, it shows in the secondary channel (in UDMA 5 mode). Before installing Mandrake I had never had this problem so, can this have some connection with LILO? It's installed in the MBR. Kernel version is 2.4.21-0.13.
