I am desperate, as it seems nothing to works:
My 6650A is connected to an secondary IDE Adapter to a PC. The interface is wired to shortcut pin 45 and 47.
Bios recognizes the drive as slave on second controller.
In windows with Sandra from Sisoft the CDROM drive is recoginzed as master on controller 1 (0 being the first controller).
My harddisk is master on controller 0.
Windows in System reports the CDROM as 0 (0). I am not where to see on which controller it is reported.
When I start bootflash from the master package the drive is listed, however I cannot change it to master Message: This bootcode will not work with your drive! I do not know for what reason it does come up.
Typing to change the the CDROM BIOS from 2.42 to a 1.x version doesn’t work with NECWINFlash as it says: Probably mixing up master and slave firmware… ID from drive 8c, ID from firmware 87
I would highly appreciate any help, what I may do wrong.
I need to change the drive to a master as my laptop only recognizes master drives.
