Help configuring IDE and SATA cables
Hi All, building a second PC. On my HDD I have a Maxtor 250GB Sata 1 drive. a diamond max pro I think, if that matters. And I have a Lite-on DVD writer. I see Sata controllers on the board, 3 of them, this is an Asrock 939 Dual VSTA board. The first one is red and says Sata 2 300gb, then there are two others. For my HDD, should I connect to the top one, the red one, or the one below it since the HDD is only Sata 1?
And on the DVD, should I set the jumpers on that to master, and plug it into IDE master? The blue slot on the mobo?
I hooked everything up, and booted it and got into the setup menu. I was able to see the the CPU and RAM and everything setup, and the temps were very cool. Is this a good start? I held off doing anything else until I hear back! Very nervous hehe
