After upgrading to a socket 1155 motherboard, from a socket 478 (using molexes and IDE hard disks), I am intending to use my current hard drives, which are all IDE onto my new SATA3 motherboard. I am attempting to add 2 old hard drives into the new motherboard, where I will boot using the first IDE disk.
I have purchased an IDE to SATA adaptor, which is bidirectional. I've set it up correctly; but no avail. The product which I have purchased is: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120956918...
I've also attempted to attach the adaptor to a DVD-ROM drive; which also went undetected. Is there, or are there anything which I could do in order to solve the issue, and have the IDE hard disks be detected on my motherboard?
Sorry for the bother, and thank you very much for your time, as well as reading this post.
Kindest regards. :)
