Question about SuperMicro X5DPA-GG (672042882748) Motherboard
Never put the CD on IDE 1
The IDE hard drive should always be alone on the first IDE channel.
CD-ROM drives can slow down the transfer rates and cause other screwups, and so they should always be on IDE2 or as high as possible (Add in Cards)

I'll need a better model number than "845" to give you a definitive answer, as ASUS doesn't name their boards that way. I suspect that the board supports the Intel 845 chipset and that's where the 845 comes into play. If you don't have the owner's manual, you'll need to look at the board real close; you'll find the model number stamped on the board. The good news is that if the board was built in the last 3 years or so it should have built-in SATA connectors (at least 2, probably 4 or more). If your DVD doesn't have the IDE cable and instead has a much smaller cable, it is in all likelihood SATA. In the worst case, even if your MB doesn't support SATA, you can buy a SATA PCI card to hook the drive up to for under $30. Finally, you can go to www.asus.com when you get the full model number. From there you can download an owner's manual that will have the SATA ports labeled.
I hope this helps you. If you think it appropriate, a fix-ya rating would be much appreciated.
