2 Ide + 2 Sata

Recommended Posts

hey guys, i currently have 2 IDE HDDs and 2 Sata HDDs,


i would like to use one of my sata(raptor) as my primary drive, but it seems that if i were to connect 2 IDEs, one of them must be primary?


So i can only have1 IDE when i use a Sata for primary?


here is what happens:


When i connect all 4 HDDs with the OS in the raptor, during POST


it will only detect 3 HDDS,


Primary IDE Master: (Blank)

Primary IDE Slave : xxx HDD

Secondary IDE Master: DVD writer

Secondary IDE Slave: CD Writer

SATA1: Raptor

Sate2: xxx HDD


and it will keep on loading on the windows load screen..


both IDE HDDs are set to slave by jumpers..


How do i set it so that i can use 2 IDE and 2 Sata with 1 sata the OS?
