ide mobo; ide hdd (20Gb); sata hdd (1Tb); sata/ide interface card (via) + cables (data & power).
connect all & switched on.
How do i make sata hdd primary master & ide hdd primary slave?
cannot connect sata hdd if interface card drivers not installed, & cannot connect interface card if hdd not installed.
result: sata drive not detectable.
When ide hdd installed, was able to install interface card drivers & only then sata hdd was detectable, but not as primary master, & unable to install anything to it.
