    Interesting problem here...
    I currently have 2 silicon image 680a IDE controller cards installed.
    However, if I try to boot my computer with anyhting plugged into them, the boot sequence halts just at the point where win XP loads.
    My boot device is a maxtor 250 gig SATA, I have an additional 250 gig SATA drive also installed.
    I have tried both optical drives and hard drives and I achieve the same result with both. I also tried swapping PCI slots and using different controller cards (I own a total of 4 cards)
    I am puzzled most because the exact same setup was working just fine last week. I was doing some fiddling, but I will probably post that later once I solve the problem at hand.
    I have to hit the sack right now, but ill check back tomorrow.
