just installed a SATA 320gig WD 7200rpm. I put it in the SATA 1 socket on my Abit KV8pro 3rd eye mobo. the bios detects it. but i want to my IDE to have OS, and the sata to have all my download stuff. in bios it reads and sata and IDE Both Master, in windows it works but a few problems i get. im not trying to get a Raid. just a secondary HD as Sata for more space.
1. When using the SATA drive sometimes my Sound just CUTS. then i have to reboot the computer. if i transfer stuff to both HD's sound dies and restart.
2. booting up is incredibly Slow. 5mins to boot before sat used to take about 15seconds. now i know Sata are built for space not performance. and i heard audio corruptions with SATA with some boards.
the installation i followed:
1. Put the sata in.
2. setup in bios
3. formated sata in windows management system and created new volume
if its ment to be slow then its fine i can wait for it load. but the audio thing does get annoying. please post replys
