Iíve just been told to try putting my C drive on the Promise controller and my CDROM and CDRW drives on the VIA controller. This I can get done for me in the morning.

One question though, how do I install an operating system, such as Windows ME, to a hard drive that isnít available under DOS? As you are all aware, the BIOS only detects devices attached to the VIA primary and secondary channels. Devices attached to the Promise controller are not detected by the BIOS nor are they available under DOS.

How do I get out of that one!

Hi, itís me again!

Another progress report Ė

This time I removed Nero. I installed Rixio EZCD Creator v5.0 Platinum. I did a test burn and got as far as about 40%, and it hang. No mouse movement, CTRL+ALT+DEL has no effect. I had to re-boot using the Ďresetí button.

I've already removed the CDROM drive from the Promise controller. I've checked my ASPI layer (even downloaded the latest version).

Now what?

HB
You said the Promise Controller is a :
WinME Promise Ultra100ô IDE Controller PDC20265. File version 1.60 (Build 25)

But I would just guess you got the information from within Windows, the true controller info should be on the BIOS botting up screen, just after you started up the computer.

Hi PS2wiz01,

Nice of you to join in!

First I installed Roxio EZCD Creator v5.0 Platinum. Then I installed the v5.02d upgrade. As you are probably aware, the problem persists.

Any other suggestions?

Lazza got the day off?
