kernel: hdc: IRQ Probe failed (0xfef8)


Ok, I have my hard drive and cd on primary IDE controller, hda, hdb are fine.

I used to have a CDR on hdc, but removed it. So I have nothing connected to Secondary IDE controller.

Been into BIOS and reset IDE settings, so ide2's master and slave are set to none.

Every time I boot my machince it gets hung up for a while looking for hdc and hdd, below is what I see..

ide1: BM-DMA at 0xb408-0xb40f, BIOS settings: hdc: pio, hdd: pio

and it repeats for hdd...

I've looked through /proc/ide and it doesn't have anything for hdc or hdd.

Where can I disable the irq probe on hdc and hdd, or, do I need to have a drive on secondary IDE controller.

I could always put my CD drive as master on secondary controller....

Any ideas???

Thanks
