Alright, so I can physically connect the drive, but i cannot install XP from it? Uh.. so does that mean i cant buy it? I dont want to buy Vista till SP1.
And also, is SATA actually better than IDE at anything when it comes to ODD's? All my HDD's are SATA, so i just thought id go ahead with the technology, but that would leave my IDE slot empty and the SATA apperantly cant boot XP.
The Samsung SH-S183L is one possibility. Ive also found the Asus DRW-1814BLT.
