Disable FIFO and then dual FIFO
I think I should tell the whole story. My ATA133 Hard disk drive came with
the my previous PC. namely Magic-Pro (A Taiwanese manufacturer). When I
upgraded it to Intel D865PERL, I still use the same drives, they drive model
is Maxtor 6YL040... something I can't remember, I installed win98 on this
new combination. Win98 installation stopped at the stage of searching for
device drivers, it just hung there, afterwards, I started my system in safe
mode, disable single FIFO, and the system can be up without the controller
software, I then update the new driver from Intel and the driver become dual
FIFO, and I still have to disable it because of the same previous problem:
the system hung. I restarted my machine in safe mode again, disable dual
FIFO, the system went. So I want to give it up and totally ignore the
controller software. But I still some night want to get it back...Any help?
BTW, do you know D865PERL actually supports ATA133 or only ATA100
