I know from testing on a Pentium2 machine that LBA and CHS modes work fine
with this combination. Other "name brand" machines with custom bios (not
award or phoenix etc) dont usually allow you to specify different modes so
Im stuck using Intel boards at this stage.

I have the same CF adapter, and it wouldn't boot until I went into the
bios and set the HD params to Manual, Access Mode: CHS (Cylinder head
sector) rather than LBA (logical block addressing) which most hard disks
use. Let it auto fill in the specs of the CF card, then save and exit.
