How do you connect it? USB adapters rarely (if ever) work with really ancient IDE drives.

It probably only appear as working because lack of permission prevents any data accesses.

Check winuaebootlog.txt after clicking add harddrive for more detailed information.

Last time i did this was with a 20mb drive from an A590 and that worked fine. A600 HDD do things differently? Looking for suggestions.
You had to do it differently, A590 has SCSI (or XT) drive, not IDE. Any active adapter (like SCSI<>IDE) most likely fix or "hide" the hardware compatibility problem.
