Ide and sata hard drives

I have a (soltek) nvidia-nforce2 (SL-75FRN2-RL) and on the board it has 2 S-ATA connecters and 3 IDE connecters. I am going to use 2 s-ata hard drives with XP on it. I also have 1 IDE hard drive with ME on it. How can I connect the 3 hard drives and have it boot from the s-ata so I can transfer all of my files from the IDE to the S-ATA?

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

Ah, ok. According to the manual, on page's what you need to do.
According to this page, you need to set onboard ide operate mode to "Enchanced Mode", and Enchanged mode support on to "Sata".

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
