Hard Drives -ATA and SATA

Can an SATA and Ultra ATA hard drive co-exist on the same mother board and both work properly.
I am running a 160gb Ultra ATA drive and would like too add an 250GB SATA drive. My mother board has 2, 1.5 SATA connecters, The ATA will be used as a back up after installation of the SATA

Thanks
Lou

SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED


Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..

Hard Drive


Hi Patrick,

ATA and SATA are basically the same. The SATA drives won't work with the machines that are designed for IDE, so you're stuck with IDE on the I-series. Check out pricewatch.com for buying hard drives. You'll be able to get them for half the price Bestbuy sells them for.

I'm not sure what's involved in getting the fingerprint device to work, if it's just a driver or a combination of driver and software. I've never worked with or had one before. I'll look into it. Have you read any of the forums at IBM's support site on this?

Hard drive


According to http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/desktops/0,1000000973,10004197,00.htm this tower has Serial ATA, or SATA. Just to confirm, you can easily pop open the case and take a look at the hard-drives. If you see a wide thin ribbon-like cable connecting to your hard-drive then you need an Ultra ATA (or just ATA or IDE) drive. It looks like this:

If a thinner red cable connects to your drive, then that is SATA. It looks like this:

HOW TO CONFIGURE RAID


I needed to see your board & can at this site. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=493&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0

This is good for you as well. It shows me & you that your board can handel 4 each DMA/ATA-133 (Ultra) IDE Hard drives/ CD/DVD drives IDE-1Primary & IDE-2 Primary Slave. Each can run 2 IDE drives. Also 4 each Serial ATA SATA's. Two separate SATA controllers with integrated PHYs, each supporting two
drives in master mode. In your manual on pg.32 & 33 will help you to setup a RAID if you wish. Or you can also set the RAID to IDE which will allow you to use all your SATA hard disks as a single drive without setting up a RAID system. The site above supplies all your drivers needed & manual. If you need more help please let me know here.
Luck!

Hard drive compatibility


This motherboard is compatible with PATA/IDE Hd's running at 133/66/33Mbs. & ATA/SATA 1.5Mbs drives. The SATA's run faster. This board will not handle a SATA II's speed but it will still run on the P5P800-VM board. The links below show good buy's on both PATA/IDE & SATA I & II. Seagates for their 5yr. warranty.
Seagate ST3160215AS 160GB ATA/SATA

Seagate ST3160215A 160GB Ultra ATA/100
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=117010
As far a size, that is up too you. Windows can handle 5 time these sizes.

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
