Anyone help me with this I'd be very grateful.
Just bought a maxtor internal 250gb h/drive, didn't think at the time that it was sata and my PC is IDE...got a IDE to Sata converter which alows me to format the hard drive but when it comes to installing the operating system it just 'blue screens' and comes up wit a load of error messages not seeming to recognise the drive.
I managed to find a couple of sata ports on my motherboard which shows the new drive in 'my computer' (I ended up reinstalling an old IDE drive just to get back on line).
Is there any way I can get the Sata drive as my main drive with XP on rather than just using it as a second drive for storage??:?
