So I’m building a new pc. The CD drive is configured as the secondary master, a single hard drive is the primary master. There is no slave on either bus. Both are plugged into the end of the IDE cable.
The CD drive is a CenDyne 32X10X40X12 DVD CD-RW combo drive. The bios sees it. I installed XP from it. But now that XP is installed, it says “Device Cannot Start (Code 10)”, and there isn’t a drive icon for it under my computer.
The motherboard is the Asus nForce II board, the model number escapes me at the moment.
Keep in mind when suggesting updating drivers that this is a brand new PC. And the driver for the network connection is on a cd. And the cd drive doesn’t work. So any programs I need to transfer to it need to fit onto floppy (unless I can connect it to my Windows 98 machine via USB…can I do that?).
