WOW! thanks alot. i was getting the same error using the same mobo. i tried several different things but to no avail. after trying to figure it out the entire day i stumbled upon this post and getting a different IDE cable solved it. i had to make an account to thank you lol

I knew a guy that said IDE cables never go bad, but i had experience with them going bad. If you bend 80pin IDE cables to much they will go bad. glad you got it sorted out
