|Have a pc with sata hard drive. Attempted to add an ide hard drive as the master but will not pick up.|
I understand the sata drives do not have the master slave setup like ide drives but I have attempted to move the sata drive from slot 1 to slot2 and set up the ide drive as a master and slave but nothing happens.
With sata drive setup as the boot up drive, windows will load but when changing to boot up from the ide drive; windows will not fire up and continues in boot loop.
If I put the ide drive into a second computer it boots up immediately,
Is there any obvious settings I have missed or do I need some sort of converter for the ide drive, even though the cd rom is ide.
