I just added a refurbished mainboard to my T60 Widescreen (Model 8743). Everything works fine except I can't boot with my DVD/CD-ROM drive in the ultrabay.
The system hangs. I try to enter the BIOS, the screen won't come up. After 3-4 minutes the system gives me the following message: initialization error 2102 (and some more). It's basically an Ultrabay problem. I can then enter the BIOS. BTW the UUID in the BIOS is zeroed. The DVD drives I try are produced in 06/07 and are the both of the Multi kind (dvdrw/cdrw).
So, the system boots fine with the DVD drive out. Once it's up and running I can insert it back in the machine, Win7 registers it and everything works fine.
I have checked extensively on-line but don't see any solutions.Any help woud appreciated. If it's a mainboard problem I need to return it. Thanks.
