Mike89 Posted May 16, 2006 Posted May 16, 2006 So far I have only used IDE hard drives. I have two. Master IDE drive into two partitions. Windows XP on first partition and files on second partition. The second IDE hard drive (Slave) is for games. I am thinking about replacing the second hard drive because I would like a larger capacity. Like 250 gigs or so. Now the question is, should I go IDE or Sata for this second drive? Can a Sata drive be used in this situation or should I just stick with IDE? I want to leave the first hard drive as is with OS on it. Can I run it this way, IDE master drive with OS on it and have a Sata drive as second drive for games? If so, what do I need to look for or do in the BIOS? I would want to copy over all the existing files from the current second IDE drive to the new second drive using Ghost. Dunno if Ghost will copy from an IDE hard drive to a Sata hard drive. If this can be done, is there any advantage of going to Sata for that second drive vs IDE?
