Do you have your HDD and ODE on the same IDE cable? That can lead to trouble sometimes, especially on quirky chipsets.
I prefer to use older versions of 4in1 on Apollo Pro133A. I've found 4.35 and 4.26 to work pretty well, a bit more headache free if you will.
No the HDD have his own cable. Just for the record, i tried again and reinstalled the 4in1 WITH DMA Mode on.....and everything went wrong again. So it's the DMA mode that messes up every time....found the guilty 100%. Still can't figure out why, since i've formatted tons of Apollo Pro 133 motherboards with this chipset, and DMA Mode was always working!
The BIOS don't allow to change anything about PIO / UDMA mode aswell, pretty disappointing too.
