Has anyone tried to bake a new disk with IC or use the Hinsdale or Weakness upgrades with an eMachines T5026 computer or similar hardware? The T5026 has only one ATA/IDE port
which has the CD and DVD drives attached. The other port is a SATA port which does not support my new Maxtor QV drive (300GB). I have an additonal IDE/ATA HD controller card installed in the computer, but the software will not see it in the linux bootup. All of the above TiVo upgrade software presumes that the MB has 2 ATA ports.
You linux gurus...are there any commands to make the computer see the additional controller? Can the upgrade be made with the CD drive and the new HD on the (only) existing ATA controller?
Thanks in advance for any help!
