|I have put pci sata boards in older p4's too. I have never had an issue but I do know that your bios plays a large part in the deal. It used to be that scsi cards were common and you board ought to allow the sata bios to take over before normal bios starts. |
You may look for a bios upgrade.
Be sure to watch for a config before bios or maybe just after it. It usually needs to be viewed and setup before you get to the OS. Sata boards and drives don't usually show in bios or may show as scsi.
On crt displays you may have problems with the warm up. It may not warm up fast enough to view sata bios.
Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
