Re: Installing PATA and SATA with WIN XP
For the first question:
Yes. When installing Windows, simply select that drive to install it on.
Not really. First, set it with the cable. Then, some BIOSes such as my Abit one will allow you to choose the hard drive order - this is the order at which the drive is looked at and the contents processed.
I got my name changed to this one, which I use everywhere now, by PMing David Lindon.
BTW, SATA doesn't have a master and a slave, only IDE. So, stick the SATA in and the PATA as master, and poke around in the BIOS.
