Just bought an retro kit comprised of a Luckytech P5MVP3 mobo w/AMD K6-2 500MHz, SB Live 5.1, 64MB of RAM (in reality a PC133 128MB stick that gets detected as half its capacity), a 40GB WD HDD (unused for now until I can get it going enough to flash a 64 or 128GB BIOS on it) and (strangely) a SATA LG DVD-ROM drive.
For now, the test bench looks like this:
-AMD K6-2 500
-SYE/LT P5MVP3 mobo (recapped with Rubycons and a Sanyo near the cache chips, EC19)
- 256MB PC100 SDRAM (2x128MB)
- MSI Geforce 2 Pro 32MB AGP
- WD Caviar AC1210 212MB w/ Win95
- LG 4165B IDE DVDRW
Issue: Board will POST, detect the IDE HDD and DVD drives successfully, than hang for a long period of time (nearly 5 minutes) before finally showing the system configurations screen, where it will take another 5 minutes before it finally slams a INSERT SYSTEM DISK error. If I unplug the HDD, it will boot fluently up until the same Config screen where it will stop at "Boot from ATAPI CDROM" and do nothing, despite not having any disc inserted. This happens on both IDE channels.
Any clues as to what should I do, besides literally hotflashing the BIOS on another mobo? (Zida LX98-AT)
