I've been working for hours trying to get an PATA DVDR/W drive and a SATA Hard drive working together.
In the bios, under SATA Configuration, My SATA hard drive is detected. Upon boot, the Marvell adapter detects my DVDR/W drive.
When I put in the Win Server 2008 disk in the drive, windows installation will go to a gray screen for a few seconds, then the mouse pointer will freeze, and the system reboots.
Under Bios settings for SATA, I currently have:
SATA#1 configuration: Compatible
Configure SATA#1 as: IDE
SATA#2 Configuration: Enhanced
The SATA hard drive is connected to the #1SATA port on the board.
Please make me feel stupid by telling me something is obviously wrong with this setup...
The documentation on this is simply non-existant. I'm thinking of just buying a SATA DVD/RW, and calling it quits with all PATA, but I'm not sure how I'd configure that in this cryptic bios menu either.
