|First thing's first, I'm not installing XP or any other OS, my m'board has 7_32-bit installed and pertaining to my inquiry, I connected the SATA2 drive to the other 6Gb/s port & so far it's working great. My SATA 2&3 hdd are connected to the 2x6Gb/s ports in ACHI mode while my 2xSATA optical drives into the 3Gb/s ports in IDE mode.|
So what do you think, will this configuration hold? I'll get back if something unfavorable happens. Thanks for the reply.
