HP 8710p/8710w/8510w/8510p 30 sec delay when using HDD in Optical Drive Caddy + MDMA2 mode

[ Edited ]

Hi!

 

I have a caddy from newmodeus.com - http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_5&products_id=226

 

The problem is:

 

1) BIOS delays for 30 sec when caddy is used (I'm on F0E, others have fan problems - fan works all time)

2) in Windows hdd has MDMA2 mode instead of UDMA6

 

I made a software workaround, described it here:

The main concept of the workaround is described here:

This issue happens not only on HP 8710p. It also happens on 8710w, 8510w, 8510p and lots of other models with PATA CD-Rom.

Hi! Is there any update on this subject?

 

Quite sure If I did order caddy with drive included from HP site I'd have the same problem.

 

Thanks.
