Mobo is after leaking and replaced affected elements. None traces are damaged (by visual looking).

Issue: it can't boot with HDD controller but with XTIDE on network card and disabling bios hdd parameters - yes.
Suggestions? I swapped bios from my second working leopard.

Does this other mobo work with this particular HDD and controller combo? I have a few I/O cards and one (UMC 82C83x) is really picky about what CF card it'll work with. And then there are BIOSes that are also picky, combine the two and really weird thing sometimes happen (not only does HDD not work, but also floppy controller starts throwing errors).
