Seagate SATA ST3160023AS
MOB AsusP4P800Deluxe
File Type  BIOS  
File Name  P4P81016.zip  
File Size  416970 bytes  
Version  1016  
Date  2004/03/01  
Update Intel RAID BIOS to V3.5.0.3003
OS - Win XP SP1 1105

I have three partions of this HD.
1- 82615mb
2- 70002mb
3- 8 mb  
It took more than 10 minutes to transfer 840mb data from Partition 2 to Partition 1 or vise versa.

My other ATA100 IDE drives are quicker in transfering data.  I'm really confused.  Can someone provide a solution to this problem, please.  Tx in advance

Did you install the RAID driver for Intel ICH5R?
If you did not update the driver to the newest after a bios flash this can cause a problem also.

Intel(R) Application Accelerator RAID Edition 3.5R for Windows 2000/XP

Even if you are not running raid you should install the driver.
This is the driver for the SATA controler.
With out it it would be like running a generic ide bus driver for your ide controler.

when you say the ATA100 drives are faster, are you comparing apples to apples, (A file operation involving two partitions on one physical disk?)

When I use Ghost or Image Magic, two drives on seperate channels are better than two drives on the same channel, and both are worlds faster than creating an image on a different partition on the same disk.
