Is it possible to make sata 3 my primary HD? And how
I bought a new Geforce 9800 GTX+ for my Dell Vostro 410 computer, Unfortunately, the cables that connect from the Hard drive and CD rom drive are in the way. The hard drive has a blue cable that connects to Sata 0 plug on the motherboard and is completly in the way of installing this card.
Is it possible to plug it into the sata 3 plug as well as the CD rom into the sata 5. This would allow me to install the card as the plugs would not be in the way.
I tried plugging the HD into the sata and went into CMOS and tried to make it primary boot drive, however, when i saved and exited and it restarted, I would get a "No boot device detected, press enter to retry". I went into the boot menu and booted from the SATA 3 and it worked. The problem is, every time i start up the computer I get the "No boot device detected, press enter to retry" and I have to go into boot menu and manually boot up from sata 3. Is there anyway to make this default so it doesnt pop up every time I start up the computer?
