I have had to cut IDE cable wire #1 to get an Intel P120/AdvancedEV mainboard to recognize an atapi cd rom. Now the Cdrom is working fine, but I get errors in Explorer (running-W98) and some Norton programs are giving the "illegal operation" notice and terminating. I have the Cdrom as Secondary slave-when I had it as primary slave--Norton Optimization wizard would not run, nor could I reinstall Norton Utilities.
Are there other ramifications as a result of disabling the "reset IDE" function? Thanks!
