    I think the Primary and Secondary channels refer to IDE. Do you get the mesages before Windows would normally start or when it starts booting from the CD?

    If the messages after after booting from the CD, check to make sure the PC is picking up you hard drive(s) when it boots up - its normally the Primary Master.
