It hadd an IDE PATA add-on cards with three IDE HDDs that showed
up as C/D/E drives in XP. It had 2 Maxtor 250GB SATA drives on
a Promise PDC20378 controller. They were originally setup in
RAID 0, but then I reinstalled XP and used ASUS SCSI drivers to
show as 2 individual drives. One showed as F/I drives with OS on
the I: drive. DVD/CD-RW showed as G/H drives. Everything was OK.
I pulled the 3 IDE HDDs and their controller out. Added another
Maxtor 250GB SATA HDD to the Via VT8237 controller. Went into
the BIOS and set the original Promise Maxtor boot drive back into
the top of the boot sequence then let the PC boot up. I got the
error message: REBOOT + SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE.
I went back into the BIOS and select the other original Promise
Maxtor just in case, but still got the same error message. The
POST shows all 3 drives OK. Can anybody help me?
