A PC running Win 98 has two drives (C & D....master & slave).
The PC won't boot because it can't see the C drive ie, the bios doesn't detect it, even on auto-detect.
Swap the drives over (master to slave, slave to master), install Win98 and the pc boots ok. Not only that but it now sees the other drive.
Any idea why it can see the drive as a slave but not as a master? (Jumpers are in correct position/s when trying diff set-ups).
Another thing....occasionally when the PC is booted it emmits a series of long repeated beeps and doesn't do anything. If the re-boot button is pressed it boots normaly (if "bootable" drive is "master").
