When changing from the 40-wire ribbon to the 80-wire ribbon, the MBR may not be read properly. Best is to delete all partitions, and start anew with the OS install. And don't use the CS (cable select) setting on the hdd, if only one drive is installed. It must be set as master.

I've finally got everything working. Thanks to all of you.

I replace the IDE cable and the system disk. All is good.
