I decided to add ultra ata/133 PCI adapter card and 2 - 140 GB maxtor harddrives to my Dell 8100. All I did was add the card and hard drive’s. I didnt mess with Bios settings are change position of primary hard drive. I left the 60 GB maxtor as the primary harddrive. Now when comp. starts up it hangs on the xww.dell screen and instead of loading windows it goes to a different screen that gives bios version and gives message:
Primary hard disk not found
Strike F1 to continue, F2 to run setup utility
When I Strike F1 and windows loads.
I removed the adapter card and it still does same.
The only other thing is that I used Ontrack’s disk manager to format the 2 new hard drives. I am thinking that Disk Manager has messed something (bios?) up. And that it should be uninstalled? If you have an idea about what could be the problem Please tell me.
