No Master IDE Detected

  1. Same issue

    Greetings,
    I'm a new poster. I am receiving the same error, and must press F1 every time I reboot. I just built my machine. I have a CD-RW and DVD-ROM on the IDE cable. I have a SATA drive attached to the mobo too. My board is an ASUS M2N-VM DVI. Since I don't even have a drive attached to IDE, I'm not sure why it's alerting me to this every time I boot.

    Check the Jumpers on the Optical Drives, probably both are set to Slave or Master, instead of 1 of each.

    Check the BIOS to see if it is recognizing anything after you set your jumpers. The master device should show primary IDE and the slave device as a secondary.
