: : I have the same problem. My motherboard is ASUS P2-99 ACPI Bios Revision 1012 and HD Maxtor 40GB 7200 6L040J2. I hope someone out there can help.

: I suspect the HD is faulty. But howcome when I make it a primary slave, it worked fine? Or do I need to upgrade my BIOS?? Headache........

Sounds like a bad sector in a critical spot.

Suggest that both of you download and run Maxtor's HDD Diagnostic utility. Run the diagnostics and if drive is workingg OK run the surface scan function - perform destructive write/read function if available. If no write/read test - erase the drive completely with the erase function and start over (fdisk, format, install OS).

Please post results - there may be a useful clue in the results.

Good Luck,
