ATAPI Incompatible problem
i just built a new computer a couple days ago and for some reason when the computer loads i get this error :
"Primary Master Drive - ATAPI Incompatible press F1 to Resume"
My Computer is detecting my slave drive as a master drive which what i believe is making this error come up. i can hit F8 and select my true master with windows on it and it will boot up without showing the ATAPI error. I cant seem to set it to make the real master boot up first. I have a seagate sata 250gb as my master, with windows installed. and a western digital 320 ide with no windows just data. the WD is the one that is being selected as first boot
This is a picture from when my computer boots up

Have you double checked the jumpers on the drives to ensure that they are set correctly ?
