Just picked up a used Intel D101GGC MoBo. I've tried booting it up but it won't detect the primary IDE channel. The secondary seems to work fine. I'm trying to set up one ide hdd and a dvd drive to load up windows XP. I belive the first few times I turned on the system the primary IDE might have detected, but it's very rare that it does. The secondary IDE slot is also a little touchy but does detect both hdd and DVD drives regularly. Unfortunately I don't have a SATA hdd or I'd be fine with just running the DVD drive on the secondary IDE and ignoring the screwy primary, but I don't have a SATA to try to get the machine up and running. Does this sound like an issue that might possibly be helped by rolling back the bios version, or does this sound surly mechanical failure on the MoBo? What about putting the HDD as secondary ide master and the DVD drive as secondary slave, would that even work? I'm bummed cause I wanna get this thing going. BTW I've already tried new cables, the drives all work in other machines and the PSU is solid. Any ideas? thanks!
