Hi, I'm owning the mentioned motherboard. It's MSI 5124 model.
There are several problems.
It doesn't detects any of my CD-ROMs. I tried many of them (around 10 pcs). Some of them are dated 1997, while the others are more modern (2011).
None of them are detected. Does this motherboard support CDROM? It should, I think. It is socket 7, not 486 motherboard...
The second thing is, it doesn't detect any HDDs larger than 1280 MB. Thats strange.
I can set an option in BIOS to:
* several disk types numbered from 1 to 40 or 50, size never exceedes 1 GB as I remember,
* USER (i must enter C/H/S values and size in MB),
None of them worked for CDROM. Maybe this mobo does just showing HDDs on the list during POST and CDROMs are ommited (but detected). Strange. 😒
