I am putting together another PC with all of the old parts that I have. I have a motherboard with only one IDE slot. I have an old hard drive that uses IDE and not SATA.
I have read that you can connect both CD-rom and hard drive with one IDE (although speeds will be lowered). I need to do this because I need to install windows onto the hard drive.
Which one drive should i set as master/slave or should i both put them jumpers as CS. I set them both as master and BIOS does not recognize any IDE drives. I plan on removing the cd-rom drive after windows has been installed. thanks for ur help
