Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
haven't built pc since xp first came out, but do go back to 3.1
AMD phenom 940 4 core
4 gig dual channel g-skill 566
nvidia pcie 9600 gso 768 mb
lg sata dvd-r-rw etc
Seagate 500 gb sata 2
Vista 64 bit Home Premium
Needed 2nd sperate drive to download torrents and other no-nos. Expect to maybe pick up unwanted files, but have had to format main drive twice in one month. Have usual problems with drivers, progs., etc. prepared to re-format new drive, as I intend to burn movies, etc.
Bought 80 gig Sata 2 Hitachi dive, inserted in sata 2, and dvd in 3. though I did everything (I thought} right, but when booting could only boot to new drive. Even with new drive removed, could only boot to it. Now when windows first start, get message ( Secondary Master ATAPI Incompatible, Press F1 to continue.) was going to return, and spend couple dollars more to get larger, Seagate. MOST IMPORTANT! BOTH DRIVES MUST NOT BE ABLE TO SHARE FILES, OR ESP. TO INFECT EACH OTHER!
In one system that I have seen this one, we had loaded optimized defaults. One item you could look at are the jumpers and the SATA ports if the connections are correct.
