Hi, this is my first post and would like to get some input from you guys, if you may.
MOBO: P4p8X asus
DVD and HDD: asus SATA
Here is my problem. My old hard drive (IDE) was getting small and make some noise at start up, so i decided to get me a new SATA hard drive. I transfered all my data and OS from old to new drive using a third party software (Spotmau) (see note below). Then i proceed to set my BIOS for the new hardware, but when i look into disk management i see that the dvd and hdd under "Device type" are set as IDE, not SATA.
These are the settings in bios. (American Trends)
(HDD) Third IDE master set to [auto]
IDE conf.: Onboard IDE operate mode=[enhance mode]
Enhance mode support: S-ATA
Quick boot: [enable]
Add on rom display mode support: [S-ATA]
I asked Asus people and they answered, " IDE and SATA are so similar that could show as either one".
I don't buy it!! What you think?
Note: Spotmau software does not do 1/2 of what they claim. Don't waste your money.
