Update: SATA II drives do have jumpers to make them backwards compatible with 1.5 Gb/s (SATA II drives are 3.0 Gb/s). So if your system is older and can only handle SATA (first Gen) then you have to add a jumper (Seagate has the jumper setting on the drive but sometimes supplies no jumper i.e. you have to have your own).

Ok, i had to comment on this, first off, to the person who posted before, you cannot connect a IDE connector to a SATA drive, SATA drives take SATA connectors. To introduce myself i am a highly trained computer technician. Second off, SATA drives do not have jumpers at all, period!! Ok, you should just use the two sata drives if thats what *********** board is set up for. Pluggin you your os drive in SATA connector 1 on your MB. Slave drive in SATA connector 2 on MB. Then you are good to go, Good Luck!!!

    for a highly trained computer tech, you don't know much i hold in my hand a SATA II 2TB seagate with the jumpers for backwards compatibility. if the jumper is not in on a system with a SATA first gen controller it will intermittently not recognise the drive.

Why u want to do these unnecessary thing. if u want to do. go through the steps. 1. YOUR SYSTEM MUST BE SWITCHED OFF. 2. REMOVE SYSTEM CABINET. 3. INSERT ONE IDE CABLE TO YOUR MOTHER BOARD. 4. CONNECT MIDDLE ONE TO YOUR SATA HARD-DISK. BUT IT SHOULD BE BOOTABLE DISK. 5. CONNECT LAST ONE TO ONE MORE SATA HARD-DISK. INSERT JUMPERS TO THIRD PLACE, WHICH IS ALLREADY WILL BE IN FIRST PLACE. 6. NOW TAKE ONE MORE IDE AND CONNECT TO ONE END TO YOUR MOTHER BOARD AND OTHER END TO NEXT HARD DISK. THERE IS NO NEED TO CHANGE JUMPERS. GOOD LUCK PURUSHOTAM

First thing you turn off the power then remove the cabinet keep the first sata hard drive as master (Between Data cable & Power supply) there you have four pins from left first pin keep the jumper it is going to be as master & the second sata drive keep it as slave & the third ide hard disk you donot keep any jumpers ok.

Initially connect only the sata drive from which you want to boot the OS. Establish the OS successful operation from this drive. Then connect the remaining drives in conventional way or the RAID array you want to have.

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
you will have to have master with slave set up
you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?

Transfered XP to internal Sata disk with controller . MOBO A7V8X-X, BIOS version 1014. Disk is recognized during boot. Disconnected all IDE drives. System won't boot from sata disk. Booting from CD results...


get to the bios boot section
( on starting the computer hold down the delete key until the bios screen shows
in that section you will see boot preference
organize the sequence that the unit will boot from save and esc
so sata hard drive =1
cd=2
external hard dive =3 etc

Connecting new hard drive


If the old one is still conected you can connect it the same way if not here is how to::

Well firstly they are 2 types IDE (large connector) and SATA (small connector)

IDE

of an ide cable has 3 jacks 1 for the main board and 2 for IDE drives
2 drive must be set to master and the other to slave
Set the drives by using the jumper on the back the instructions are written on the drives
Connect the Ide Cable and then the power and turn you system on

IF ITS SATA
connect the sata cable to both hard drive and main board
connect the power cable and your done!!

NB:: sata ports are labeled SATA 1 SATA 2 etc

IDE are LABELED IDE 1 IDE 2

Ide is a large grey cable black connector SATA is usually orange or red and small

Sata & ide darddrives


Hi, All dual drive capable boards read the SATA first, just make sure both SATA & IDE are enabled in the BIOS, load your O/S as normal this will load on the 1st SATA and the others will be auto detected as drives D and E, the IDDE will be E by default. Regards mistyman
