Act IV – Sec Master HDD Error
Turns out this referred to the 10GB IDE harddrive that had been removed from the system but was still listed in the BIOS. Correcting the boot order to make sure that SCSI was a boot device and redecting the harddrives to remove the reference to the 10GB HD corrected the error. Once the IDE harddrive was returned to the system it would not boot. Moving the ide harddrive to the slave position with one of the CDROMs as master allowed the system to boot. I’ve had my friend’s computer for 4 weeks and feel terribly guilty. I am thankful that it will be returned tonight.
