I bought and built a new system last week. e6300 chip and an Asus P5N-SLI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131032
board. I am running a 250gig hd SATA and then a dvd-rom drive on the primary IDE output.
The problem arises when, using the same ide cable, i hook up at second cd-rom drive and then boot the system. It slow boots and then when the windows load screen happens, the computer loads and then locks up and won't do anything until i reboot without the drive connected
I am using windows XP pro 32bit, and with a former computer, had no trouble using multiple cd/dvd drives and just hooking them up accordingly. I made sure that the "cable select" jumper was selected and saw no other issues. The bios doesnt seem to show anything either. Any options?
