dtrip35 June 11, 2009 at 01:55:28 Specs: Windows Home Server, Athlon XP 1600
I have an older computer with an Epox 8kha+ motherboard that I want to install with Windows Home Server. Does anyone know if it's possible to use a PCI to SATA controller for this mb? I'd like to drop in a couple of 1tb drivers. Thanks for the help
You should check your boot options in the BIOS. Most times an add in controller card is set by using the SCSI option in the boot device order.
Then be sure the card you buy supports both the drive size you wish to connect AND is a bootable card.
Do you plan on running a version of RAID? If so, then be sure the card supports the version you wish to use.
Look at the link below for a good source for all hardware. The link will be for PCI based controller cards. You can filter further as needed. After you click on the product in the site you can look at the specs and reviews from users. Watch to get the correct drive interface type too. Look at the newegg.com homepage to find the drives too.
