Installing 2 SATA Drives
Posted on 2004-04-24
I have an Intel D865Perl Motherboard with 2 serial ATA connectors.
I have 2 serial ata disks, one WD of 80 gb and a maxtor of 120 gb
I want them to be treated as 2 different disks, so I just plug each of them to a different conector in the mother.
Lets call them WD to the western digital disk, MA to the maxtor disk, C1 and C2 to the 2 different connectors
If I connect WD to C1, it works just fine.
If I connect WD to C2, it works just fine.
If I connect MA to C1 it works just fine.
If I connect MA to C2 it works just fine.
If I connect MA to C2 and WD to C1, it appears just the WD one.
Any ideas of why this can be happening?
Note: I've read about plugging them together and using them as a RAID, but that's not what I'm looking for.
Thanks in advance
