I had a "dead" Lite-On CDRW drive long time ago. Hooked it on PS and flashed back to 'live'.!
Whats the chipset of your mobo? [/B]
Thanks for the reponse pinto2 ...
DELL PowerEdge 400SC
P4-3.2Ghz CPU, Intel Pentium 4C
Intel 875P chipset
Another question (or two) :
1) Does the drive actually have to be seen by the BIOS (ie does idediag have to report/see it before you even have the chance of flashing it) or can MTKFLASH see it regardless if it is simply installed.
2) When I boot from my WinME boot disk .. should I select Boot w/CDROM support, Boot without CDROM support or Minimal boot ... or does it even matter?
Again my BIOS no longer recognizes my liteon drive so I am trying to understand if MTKFLASH can see/flash it?
I will try your advice on connecting it as the Slave on the Primary IDE .... any advice on how did you do this .. the HD slots are far from the CD slots (I will look for an alternate cable).
