: I have a 166 Pentium with an advance data motherboard (I don't know what model number it is) and I am running windows 98. I just installed a 20 Gig. Maxtor Hard drive (5400 RPM). The computer recognizes the new drive; however, my primary and secondary IDE controllers have to be disabled to allow my computer to boot up: all drives are running in MS-DOS comp. mode file system). If anyone can offer any assistance it would greatly appreciated. Thank you.

: Additional data:

: Intel PIIX4 Bus master IDE controller (ultra DMA Supported)
: Bios v4.51 PG
: Award Bios Extension v1.0A
: Intel i430TX
