Have a Dell Optiplex GX520 (yes it's a bit of an oldie), on startup it says:

"drive 1 not found parallel ATA PATA-0 (Primary IDE Master) Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter setup utility"

I know what it's telling me - I replaced the original CD-ROM with a DVD-ROM and because its a "package" type computer it's not recognising the new drive. If I hit F1 to continue everything works fine, I just want to get rid of the annoying message everytime I start up. It's running a Phoenix Rom BIOS Plus (ver 1.10 A11).

I've scrolled through there it says the drive is "unrecognised" but is "working". The only options are to turn the PATA port "on" or "off". Any suggestions whereto from here?
