The suggestions have been to uninstall SECONDARY IDE CONTROLLER, then load Motherboard Drivers For IDE. This cannot be done as system wont allow. The parent...the bus controller has to be unistalled to achieve this and that will effectively remove all hardware from system - I could end up with nothing. So I am back to not Secondary IDE working because it has been dynamically disabled. The question is still…what does this mean and how do I reverse it?
