Re: LiveCD Problems
:Well, I don't believe this, but I pulled out an ole' crufty looking
:double density wire IDE cable from my closet swapped out the one that
:came with my motherboard (Gigabyte) and rebooted, and now suddenly
:dfly does UDMA100. What I don't understand is why both the Linux
:Kernel and Windows XP ran the HD with the other cable at UDMA100
:without any problem. The only other thing I can think of is when I
:swapped out the IDE cable I also moved around some power cables in the
:case (less EMI maybe?).
:Thanks anyway I guess.
I have similar issues on my Shuttle boxes. The cable that came with the
shuttle was supposed to be a UDMA133 cable but the ATA driver did not see
it that way. But when I bought a brand spanking new gamer's UDMA133
cable and used that, the ATA driver was happy.
