Sounds like you have the PATA disk set as the primary boot disk in the BIOS.
Well the pata disk is my primary master on the ide bus. But the boot disk is and was the sata disk. Wich is the shown as the boot disk in the bios overview at boot time.
Windows sees the pata disk as the first disk too for some reason. Could it be a bios related problem then?
So im still a bit puzzled. But now that i have it working i dont feel a lot like reproducing it. Thank you for explaining the 1024 cylinder problem is a thing of the past.
