I bought an old case so I could build a pentium 2 400-450Mhz AGP motherboard inside of it.
It is an Asus P2B-LS with Award Bios 4.51Pg and Asus ACPi Bios rev 1002.
Unfortunately I have encountered a problem, it hangs when it detects CD-ROM or DVD drives.
It can detect and use floppy disks and hard disks without problem. Inside the case are two DVD drives which I connected to the secondary IDE bus as slave and master.
It detects them correctly and shows their names. But after IDE 4 (Secondary 2) it doesn't continue. power switch and reset button stop working, as does Ctrl + Alt + del.
I thought maybe the DVD drives were too new, so I tried an old goldstar CD-ROM drive as a single drive on secondary. Same issue...
Any ideas? Could it be a master/slave issue? Would be really disappointing if this board was kapot...
