My HP COMPAQ DC5100 is _NOT_ using SATA drives; it has one parallel-ATA disk-drive, and one parallel-ATA CD/DVD drive.

If you wanted, you could buy ($30??) a add-in PCI card, install it, to supply two SATA ports. You'd also need to buy a power-adapter, to convert the (white-coloured) MOLEX connectors to the (black-coloured) SATA power-connectors, to get power to your SATA device(s).

I installed a sata dvd drive in my dc5100 sff the boot order recognises it as an ide drive


i dont think it matter if your system detects it as sata or ide, both interface will work in installing OS, the important thing is you changed your boot order. originally it was supposed to boot in 1st drive whichever it is hard drive or dvd drive. go to bios then follow the instruction in how to move the order of boot sequence, mine is SHIFT key then PLUS.

HP dc5100MT motherboard


Based on what I have read about the HPdc5100MT motherboard it only supports SATA hard disk. Not sure how you are able to use a 80GB IDE.

See configurations from HP at this website. All hard drives are mentioned as SATA.
