Question "Disk error 32 AX= 4235, drive 9F error" when try to install Slackware.

I have:
Gigabyte ga-p41t-es3g motherboard
2 sata hdd.There is no jumper on two hdd both and the hdds attached to motherboard with different cables.

I was working with same hardware previously.
I have a 500GB hdd and a 200 GB hdd.I want to install slackware on the 500GB hdd.
Previously I installed slackware,debian etc on 200GB hdd and I used 500GB hdd as data storage.Yesterday I wanted to move data to 200GB hdd and I want to install operation systems on 500GB hdd and now I cant install slackware on computer.

I have a problem that I thanythingink relevant with bios settings.
I know Slackware dvd is working.I think I can not set bios settings correctly.

When I change sata cable inputs I get a different error.Sometimes pc not read dvd ang I get "99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 ....." error.Sometimes PC read dvd but I get "Disk error 32 AX= 4235, drive 9F error" on starting slackware dvd at this time.

There are inputs sata_0,sata_1,sata_2,sata_3 on motherboard.
At this time DVD attached on sata_0,500GB hdd attached on sata_1 and 200GB hdd on sata_2.

I tried to change hdd cable inputs on motherboard and I set 500GB hdd as master hdd(sata_0) but problem still continue.

I tried to set 500GB hdd as master on bios but not change anything.
I see there is MBR on 500GB hdd.

This problem related with what ?
How can I solve resolve this ?

There is no "master" jumper on SATA since there is only one device per SATA cable. There may be a jumper to limit speed in case your system or cable don't support 3g. Check your drive specs and return the configuration to the factory settings. That motherboard should have 4 independent SATA ports so there should be no effect of one device on the others.

First of all thanks for reply smallpond.

I returned bios settings to factory settings but did not change anything.
I wonder is there a settings on bios for this that I dont know ?

I was working with the 2 hdd both before I move operation systems to 500GB hdd and move my data to 200GB and change hdd sata cable inputs on motherboard.I cant remember which hdd connected on which sata input formerly.
