Thread: promise ultra 100 ide controller (pci)

    I just recently got a free computer that didn't work. After lots of hair pulling and knuckle biting I replaced the maxtor hard drive and the floppy.
    The system has a k7 processor (600 mhz?), has two ide busses and an extra Promise ultra 100 pci card with two more ide connections. I cannot boot a newly formated win98, WD 7200rpm, 20gb hard drive without the system disk in the cdrom. This only happens when I connect to the Promise adapter. Why not and what possible reason to have the extra IDE connections? I do see a quick prompt during boot up that says "no ultra 100 devices connected". I got it working now off of the system mainboard ide bus. Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

    P.S. I just don't like mysteries.

    Try setting the bios to boot from scsi. Does the controller have a boot rom?

    yes, I believe it does. I don't think that this is a scsi controller though. Are you saying that it may operate on the same priciple?
