Hi have been getting restored a DTK286 i found next to trash container, have a hard time getting rid of all the damn cockroaches that where living inside of it.

Now i have a problem using XTIDE BIOS i donīt have found before in any other systems.
If i turn on the system and have no ide drives connected the xtide bios shows fine and allow to boot from the floppy drive.
If i have any IDE drive connected, shows ok on the XTIDE BIOS but after detecting the hard drives the system donīt try to boot from floppy or hard disk.
Iīm using a network card and the 8k XTIDE version, tried the 286 small and also the 8086 small but the problem is the same.
