So... Your original configuration was hard drive as Primary Master, and CD as Secondary Master. Are you using 80-conductor cables? 80 conductor: http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/if/ide/z_000553idecable80.jpg 40 conductor: http://www.scientific-solutions.biz/products/938605/images/cable_ribbon.jpg The 40 conductor ribbons sometimes throw up problems in strange times and places, an effect I observed when installing FreeBSD on my Xbox. Also, the 80-conductor cables often support CS jumper settings; try setting both jumpers to cable select, and plug the 80-conductor cable in with the labelled ends into the correct drives.
