I have "successfully" installed windows xp onto a Seagate SATA drive connected to an ABIT IS7 mainboard.  My question for the group is: Why can't I see any designation in Device Manager that it is a SATA.  All I see is ATA controllers and devices.  The Bios has been set properly for the On-board chip.  And the system seems to work ok but I feel I am missing out on SATA performance benefits.  If the SATA drive was installed properly why can I see something like SATA Seagate or something akin to that in Device Manager?  Thanks.
