My system currently already uses the IDE channels for my 2 optical drives and 2 ide drives.

My question is... can i run a SATA hdd tandem to my ide's or does activating the SATA "Switch Off" my IDE drives.

I'm running low on space atm and i'd rather add rather than substitute a drive.

i'm running a Gigabyte 8IPE-1000 Pro2 if anyone is wondering. 865PE chipset.

XP Home if that matters at all either.

Don't quote me, but I would say yes, it will run.

I have an Asus p4pe, with both SATA drives in raid 0 with two other 80gs on the normal IDE, and I have had absolutely no problems ( also with DVD and CD-R).

I don't know off the top of my head what promise chip I have.

Not really a helpful post :/ Other than the info that I got it to work on a different board.

no, running sata will not shut off your ide capabilities, you have to do that manually in the bios

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
