I am trying to get two hard disks to work as master and slave on the same IDE channel, but they don't work together properly the way I want them to

I need to set up an IDE/ATA hard disk on my PC, but my BIOS doesn't have autodetection capability and I don't know what the disk geometry is

I want to partition my large hard disk as a single partition but the system won't let me

I don't need the secondary IDE controller on my motherboard and want to disable it so I can free up the resources (IRQ line, etc.) that it is using. I disable it in the BIOS setup but Windows keeps redetecting and installing drivers for it
