IDE Primary Master

This is where the hard disk parameters are entered for the primary master IDE/ATA device, the first drive in a modern IDE system. See the hard disk section for details on what these terms mean and how these devices are set up. The various settings for the drive are discussed in detail in the IDE Setup / Autodetection section. The default setting for this on a system with IDE autodetection, is usually "Auto".

Note: Some older systems only have places for two drives' parameters to be entered; often in this case they just call them "Drive C" and "Drive D".
