SubjectRe: IDE bugs for intel 440LX chipset in Test12?


Anyone with a PIIX4,PIIX4AB,PIIX4EB has a hardware bug.
If many of the chipset makers followed and reverse engineered their stuff
against that bug then ths explains all of the timeout issues.

I am working on a fix, but do not have one yet.

Cheers,
