I am thinking of changing my ata maxtor HD to sata. This will give my optical drives an ide channel each.
I'm not sure how to do this.
M/B, Asus A7N8x deluxe
Will i have to, d/l the sata drivers + install, change over to sata with a cable converter, reboot.
Will the drive be recognised by XP ?
Or will i have to change drive over to sata, reinstall windows an install the sata driver when asked at the start ot installation.
