I went to add a second harddrive to my system, CMOS saw it OK but when I tried to boot I would get a Windows protection error, Its not the drive, it appears that my system (IBM PC300GL) does not like when I try to add an additional device to the system, I cane set it up with both drive and without the CDROM and it works, on drive Slave, one drive Master but if I try to put a third device into the loop it fails.

Are you switching the jumpers on the drives correctly? The jumpers must be set as Master and Slave accordingly.

I got an update to flash tonight, I hope that is it as IBM does not want to hear from me, They will not even talk to you if your unit is out-of -warrenty
