Hi,

The IDE controller on these servers only supports an IDE CDROM drive and NOT a hard disk. To run an IDE hard disk you would need to add a PCI card with IDE controller and attach the drive to this.

HTH,

Nick.
It's got two chances - it will either work or it won't!

Nick is correct.
You must add another IDE controller. But be careful, make sure you get one that has BIOS controllers to allow you to boot something other than itself.
