    How do i go about making an IDE hardrive the master, and an SATA drive the slave?
    I want to boot from the IDE, and just use SATA as storage. Thanks.

    With my (admittedly limited) experience with S-ATA drives, you don't need to define the 'master' and 'slave' drives. To the best of my knowledge, the IDE and S-ATA interfaces work independently of each other, so the jumper settings in relation to each other aren't important. In fact, quite a number of S-ATA drives are sold without a jumper bank on the back.

    My current setup is as follows:

    Primary Master: 80GB Seagate 7200rpm, 2MB cache HDD
    Primary Slave: Lite-On 52/24/52 CD-RW

    Secondary Master: 120GB WD 7200rpm, 8MB cache HDD

    S-ATA0 (or possibly 1): 250GB WD 7200rpm, 8MB cache HDD
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Thanks for the fast reply: but here is my problem:

    I have 1 IDE drive. Then my SATA drive is connected to a Controller Card.

    When I boot up, WinXP detected the controller card, but not the harddrive.

    What motherboard do you have? When I was attempting to set up my S-ATA drive, I ran into a few problems due to the fact that the S-ATA enable jumper on my motherboard was disabled. Could this be your problem aswell?

    I was a long way off the solution on this one...perhaps I should go to sleep now :">
