I just purchased a ST-LAB, A-142 PCI ATA/133 IDE controller and attached to my computer. I installed the driver (without connecting the HDD cable yet) and computer recognized the card.
Then i turned off and connected a hard drive with the flat cable to ide1 or ide2 - then windows wont start. I tried at another pci slot - same thing.
tried on my second computer - card works ok !
My first computer is a core 2 duo intel 4500 processor, MSI mother board model:MS 7255.
Any idea? do i need to do something at my bios definitions?
only when i conect the ide hard drive to one of the ide ports - the winows won’t start.
if someone has idea - plesae email me to
