first off, this is how my computer is set up:
Asus P4C800 E-Deluxe Mother board
Primary (parallel) raid controller built into motherboard has 1 Maxtor 250GB as master, 1 Maxtor 160 GB as slave, just set to RAID 0
Primary IDE has Seagate 120 GB Hard Drive as master and a CD-RW/DVD Player as slave
Secondary IDE has a DVD player has master, CD-RW as slave
*I have 2 dvd players and 2 cd rw (overlapping on one drive) because #1-I have room to put them there, #2- I want them in use in some computer, #3 the combo drive has 8mb cache, but is the noisiest of all 3, basically I want the option of quietness or more cache. #4 is simply because they are sooooo cheap on rebates.
PROBLEM IS HERE:
When I start the computer it shows the little bios screen with the P4 label (or the comp specs if I desire), then it shows it searching for bios or whatever and finds the raid 0 setup, then it beeps and flashes to a screen that says Primary Slave Drive - ATAPI Incompatible; Press F1 to Resume
What I want to happen:
That screen to disappear and to not beep and to not lock up the system untill I press F1.
What I have tried:
1. Switched master and slave with hard drive and combo drive
2. checked jumpers, and even changed from cs to master and slave
This has happened before (before I read manual and figured out what the raid stuff was) when I attempted to plug same 2 devices into raid parallel port and 3rd hard drive into an IDE plug, the difference then was that the harddrive was the only thing plugged into the IDE on its own individual cable, and I only had 2 cd/dvd rom drives then.
