I'm trying to get an old 486 board, 30 pin simms, vlb, working with two hard drives and a cd-rom. No matter what I do I can't get two ide ports working. I've tried different controllers, disabling the secondary controller on the vlb, and putting a dedicated ide controller on. No luck. Nothing is working. Is there a limitation on some old motherboards in respect to ide controllers so that the board will not support dual ide?

Any help most appreciated.

All's well that breaks well.
