delayed startup



Probably a simle question, but is bugging me. Few weeks ago watched a dvd on
my XP system, ever since then, even though removed dvd program that came
with dvd, when start computer there is long delay and then i get message
"secondary hard drive 0 not found, secondary hard drive 1 not found" am able
to continue by hitting F1 and then things are normal. How can i stop machine
from looking for secondary hard drives? Thanks in advance. Please send

That said, this is a hardware configuration issue, you need to be sure the
new drive is properly connected and jumpered and configured.
