I installed a new Western Digital HD and somehow when I particianed and formated it, it got setup using "Int 13".  The motherboard is new also.  Maybe thyis had something to do with it. It is an Intel D850 MV.  I have never seen a hard drive set in Int 13.

Should the drive have been setup like this and does it affect performance?  Will it take setting up again to change it?

I wouldn't expect it to be a problem.  How many controllers do you have on the mobo?  If you want it at a different location you should be able to use the other controller and it will be assigned a different config.

Don't confuse Int 13 with IRQ13. It is not the same thing. Primary IDE controller is often on IRQ 14, secondary on IRQ 15. Int 13 is something involved in large drive support.
