Most of the time you'll need to change a setting in the BIOS to force the computer to recognize the PCI slot first.
Try going through your BIOS settings until you find it.
This ensures that the BIOS will always be available and will not be damaged by disk failures.
It also makes it possible for a computer to boot itself.
But every link I click on Intel site comes up 'Page Cannot be Displayed' grrrr.
Does Anyone have any advise on how I might configure this system for using Windows Server 2003 SBS?
IDE and its updated successor, Enhanced IDE (EIDE), are common drive interfaces found in IBM compatible computers.
Below is a picture of the IDE connector on the back of a hard drive, a picture of what an IDE cable looks like, and the IDE channels it connects to on the motherboard.
A system bus is a single computer bus that connects the major components of a computer system, combining the functions of a data bus to carry information, an address bus to determine where it should be sent, and a control bus to determine its operation.It is a standard interface for IBM compatible hard drives and CD or DVD drives.IDE is different than SCSI and Enhanced Small Device Interface (ESDI) because its controllers are on each drive, meaning the drive can connect directly to the motherboard or controller.Because RAM is faster than ROM, though, many computer manufacturers design systems so that the BIOS is copied from ROM to RAM each time the computer is booted. Short for Scalable Link Interface, SLI is an NVIDIA technology that allows two video cards that support SLI, to share the workload, increasing the overall performance.SLI video cards run on certified motherboards over PCI Express.
