I have installed a SATA HD on my dell 3000. The drive works fine as a data drive, but not as the primary boot drive.
The following are the specifics.
- SATA RAID PCI Card: SYBA SATA SY PCI40010 (SATA300)
- HS is Connected to Channel 3 on SATA II card
- HD: BARACUDA 500GB
- drivers: installed all lastet drivers
- XP BIOS does not recognize the HD and therefore I can not set the drive in the boot sequence.
