What would cause a Lite-On 52x32x52 drive to come up with This device cannot start


What would cause a previously functioning Lite-On 52x32x52 drive to come up with "This device cannot start (Code 10)" after changing the motherboard/processor? I've tried 1) switching it from slave to master with a DVD drive in the chain, 2) no DVD in the chain, 3) a functioning 48x16x48 drive, 4) a clean install of XP Pro from the drive itself. All result in the same end result - a non-functioning cd burner! I would hate to give up the processor even though it is somewhat suspect being stamped as an XP2200 and will only detect as a XP2600 with a FSB of 100MHz - it will not post with any other FSB setting.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Try changing you IDE cables, it could be that while conecting the new CPU the cable broke also to better your performance connect your DVDplayer as a slave.
