On a Dell Dimension 2400 at start up i am getting the above message.I was fitting a Dvd Recorder and i changed the settings to master on the hard drive and slave on the Cdrom.I have the Dvd recorder set as master on the secondary drive. I think the hard drive was on Cs when i started.I put the hard drive in another computer and it boots up okay.When i go to the Bios it says Primary Master Drive Off.
Help appreciated.

Why do you want a CD Rom drive as well?? i have found you can have a DVD drive and a DVD RW but a CD Rom or CDRW did not work on my computer so now i have just the DVD RW drive.

At this moment i would settle for a computer that boots up and i can discard the cd drive later if it helps.
