Question about Computers & Internet
I have 2 sata hard drives and 1 ide hard drive. how can i run all 3 and boot from 1 of the sata drives?
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.

SOURCE: sata, ide
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

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
