When you install 2 x SATA drives, just don't enable RAID in BIOS. Good Luck bimmerbill March 15, 2007 6:29:49 PM I started with the purple Gigabyte SATA port, but my HDD showed up as a removable USB drive in WinXP. So, I switched to one of the non-Gigabyte SATA ports and things work fine. Related resources Does it matter which SATA port boot drive is on? - Forum 2 SSD Drives, 1 SATA III port.
