Win2K not found after replacing CD-ROM drive


C

CK

I have an IBM Intellistation Pro PC with Win2K on it. I
tried replacing my old CD drive with a new one. Now when I
boot up my machine, it gives me the following error:

1962: No operating system found. Press F1 to repeat boot
sequence

I tried the following -
1)Changing the master/slave settings on the hard drive and
CD drive

2)Played with the Startup Boot Sequence. Tried a few
combinations such as disabling 'Network' as an option. My
boot sequence is currently: HDD0,CDROM,Floppy

3)Checked the power cords to make sure there was no loose
wiring that caused the hard drive not to be recognized

It seems that installing the CDROM drive has caused the
system not to find the hard drive and boot from it. Any
ideas on what else I can try?

Thanks!

It's almost certainly a drive jumper issue. Does cmos setup correctly
identify the drive? Try removing the CD-Rom set the fixed disk jumpers for
master and last drive. Also make sure it's on primary channel.

Hi,

I disconnected the CD drive, and tried booting with
both 'master' and 'slave' settings for the DIP switch on
the hard drive, but still get the same error.

The BIOS Setup says 'IDE Drive 0' is not installed. I
assume that IDE Drive 0 refers to the CDROM drive? If it
refers to the hard drive, how do I 'install' the hard
drive?

How else can I check for whether the hard drive is being
recognized, and if it's on the Primary channel?

Thanks,
CK

drive0 is the fixed disk. Leave the CD-Rom out for the time being. Set the
switches on the drive for master and last drive. Plug the fixed disk into
the primary channel. Set the primary IDE channel to 'Auto' Check your mb
documentation for the correct channel location on the mb. bios will indicate
the correct drive type when you get it right.

It seems to me that the drive is not being recognized
because the motherboard is somehow grounded to the case. I
did some continuity testing, and it seems that the +5V is
definitely grounded. I did this by using the floppy
connector coming from the power supply. How can I fix
this? I did look at the standoffs under the motherboard,
but as far as I can see, they seem alright. Any ideas on
how I can proceed?

Thanks!

Unplug the power supply from everything then while monitoring the PS voltage
start plugging in devices one-at-a-time till you find it.
