I have similar problem. I can't get my primary and secondary ide drives
to run at the same time. If I boot without dos-ide drivers, I get primary
ide working. If I boot with dos-ide drivers and specify hdc= and hdd=
parameters to loadlin.exe, I get secondary ide working.
On bootup it detects both ides with correct irq but it doesn't detect
any drives on other ide even if hda=,hdb=,hdc=,hdd= parameters are given.
And it doesn't enable any multiple modes to my newer hds even if dos
Dos drivers do some extra initialization for my HT-6560B EIDE
controller to get secondary ide to work and primary ide not to work.
Perhaps I should have a look at those drivers.
