  • Page 8 WHEN USING A PRIMARY IDE CONTROLLER Most PCs provide one IDE cable to support two devices (one for hard disk, the other for a second hard disk or a CD-ROM drive). This IDE cable originates either on the motherboard or on a controller card. This controller is termed the primary IDE controller, and the hard disk attached that contains the operating system for boot-up is set up as the Primary Master.
  • Page 9 WHEN USING A SECONDARY CONTROLLER * If your PC has an additional IDE controller on the motherboard or on a system slot, each IDE device connected to the secondary IDE controller must also be set to the Master or Slave mode. If you are connecting your CD-ROM drive to a secondary IDE card, and it is the 1st device you are connecting to it, then set the CD-ROM jumper to the Master position.
