P5W DH IDE/SATA config question. Tags: Asus Sata Configuration Boot Motherboards Last response: February 20, 2007 6:18 PM in Motherboards Share KDCNewYork February 19, 2007 6:14:25 PM I've recently upgraded a system that was used for video production- all IDE drives. My question is concerning SATA configuration- I would like to boot from a single SATA drive, keep my IDE drives, and add a SATA RAID. There seems to be 3 different SATA controllers on the MB, but the manual is rather vague. I think only one of them can run JBOD? Can I choose which HD to boot from? Does anyone has any recommendations? Thanks in advance for your time.

Single SATA (bootable) on Intel ICH7R Sata1 [red] Dual (Raid) SATA drives on ASUS EZ-Backup EZ_Raid1/EZ_Raid2 [orange] and, of course: IDE ATAPI drives (burners,etc.) on Intel ICH7R IDE connector [PRI_IDE] next to the floppy controller. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>P5W DH IDE/SATA config question.> Related ressources: ForumAsus P5W DH Deluxe SATA Harddrives recognition ForumQuestions for owners of the Asus P5W DH Deluxe ForumE6600 with a p5w dh deluxe board ForumIntel BOXD975XBXLKR or ASUS P5W DH DELUXE..?
