I have a Compaq Presario CDS 724 and tried the same thing with noQuote:>I am attempting to install another hard drive off of my existing one (i.e.

luck. I downloaded a file from Compaq that was supposed to enable a
secondary I/O controller. I also tried using the secondary controller
driver residing in the CPQDOS directory...no luck. It seems the
secondary controller must also have a hard drive attached to work
I read a few posts from other COMPAQ users unable to make a secondary
controller work and apparently COMPAQ's hardware and software
divisions blame each other for the inability to make a secondary IDE
controller work with a CD-ROM as master.
If you are able to learn something new, please reply.
