Secondary IDE channel
Posted: 04-26-2006, 10:03 AM
Sorry for being ignorant about this, but I read that the Primary IDE channel
and the Secondary IDE channel should be included in the XPE image to avoid 7B
My image didn't have the secondary IDE channel, and it has worked so far
(except with that horrible USB thumbdrive problem which till now we still
can't understand). Should I include in the secondary IDE channel? What is
this component for?
If I boot up in XP Pro using the same machine and look under Device Manager,
the Primary IDE channel is there, and the Secondary IDE channel is not
listed. Similarly, when I run TAP on XP Pro, this component didn't seem
required after I imported the pmq file.
Lastly, is it alright to put in more drivers like the pci bridge and ultra
ATA storage components? I mean, if they are not used, they just take up space
and shouldn't cause too much damage, right? (I hope)
