Adding a SATA HDD

  Blubottle 19:39 26 Nov 2009

I have two headers on my M/B for SATA primary and secondary, at the moment I am using two IDE HDD's one master the other as a slave in a dual boot mode. I now plan to add a large Sata HDD partition it into 3 and use as the master with two slaves. the question is what sata connector do I use in conjunction with the existing setup.

SATA does not have master and slave, I assume you wish to partition to have the operating system on one partition and data / photos etc. on another.

yes my mistake, should have read primary and seconday,SATA1 SATA2. My plan is to have two O/S one on each partion with the 3rd for storage.
