You can do either way ..the ide port will support them both ..the first one has the advantage that the operation system may be left on the first one .and the data stored on the second.this way large amound of data can be protected from hdd failure ..cause if it happens usually it is affected the one with operation system ..also you can move them easy just moving the hdd...
The second will be faster cause it will be all in one .and the data transfer from a partition to another faster ..also the bus has aa larger transfer rate and communication speed..but ..just see what is the most convenient for you ..price ..and function ...depends on what you want to do ..

After system recovery of my sony Vaio PCV-RS510, I did a Vaio updates and now computer will not boot. None of the buttons or keys working. Displaying "Sony" only.


If you have an install disc boot to it, restart your PC hold down F12 and select the CD/DVD Drive. If it boots to disc, go to the command prompt then run SFC /scannow. This will run the system file checker and repair your files as well.

    Failing install of PCI SATA Drive


    You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.

    The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.

    If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.
