Hi and welcome

You need to set the HDD to slave, because the DVD is the Primary Boot Device, not the HDD.

Don't worry too much about cloning the original HDD - it will more often fail. When you have the HDD and DVD working ok, just boot off the latest firmware in the USB socket and it will reinstall and create the partitions automatically - but make sure the CF card is formatted FAT32 first and NOT with a Mac.

If I will put 2CF/IDE adapter + CF card in NG4, not work USB and DVD drive
Your firmware - copy in USB and SD card
Firmware on USB key - nothing happened
Firmware on SD card - internal error 0x3019 - 67%

I don't have the nerve (I burn my car, NG4, Garage, Notebook, CF card, Adapter - and I will be happy)

This is adapter is bad, not working CF card in NG4

I understand it correctly
CF slot 1 - master (CN1)
CF slot 2 - slave (CN2)

jumper settings
Yellou - master
Red - slave
soldering this pin? (slave)

I have this adapter - not work
