How do I connect SATA and IDE on Asus P5AD2-E Premium board???
Posted on 2005-05-16
I just bought the ASUS P5AD2-E Premium board and I'm new to SATA connections. I have a WD Raptor Drive that is SATA and a 250 GB WD IDE drive. The board has 2 master and 2 slave SATA connections on the board. I connected the Raptor drive to the master SATA port on the board but it shows up under "3rd primary master" in the bios. Is there a way to have it show up under "primary master" ?
Also, since the board only has a primary IDE port, do I need to slave the 250 GB off my CD drive that is presently connected to this port?
thanks for any help!!
