Hi guys! The title says it all. But one of these two answers is the right one and I have no idea whatsoever which one. So hopefully someone has:)

Serial ATA is IDE, but it shows up in Windows as a SCSI driver.  Ironic, huh.

Hi guys, I chose for SCSI after I spoke to someone online. Could it be that its an SCSI in Windows and an IDE in DOS or vice versa? I hope so. Its for my reborn card.

Hi guys I ****ed up big time by choosing SCSI since it kept my machine from booting so it had to be IDE but I already rewarded someone for response so I will leave things be.
