I am setting up my first new build with a Gigabyte P35-DS3R motherboard. I currently have 2 SATA optical drives, 1 SATA HDD, and two IDE HDD. I am new to the SATA concept and would like help in configuring the BIOS correctly.
Intel Core2Quad Q6600
Foxconn 8800GTS 640MB
2GB(2x1GB) Crucial Ballistix
Seagate 7200.10 SATA HD 320GB
Seagate 7200.9 IDE HD 250GB
Seagate 7200.9 IDE HD 160GB
Samsung SATA DVD burner
ASUS SATA DVD ROM
Is it possible to connect all of this stuff? All of the SATA devices (optical drives, HDD, eSATA connectors) are connected to the orange Intel Sata slots. Does it matter which spot they are plugged into?
The SATA drives are showing up, however the IDEs aren't showing yet.
SATA RAID/AHCI Mode - Disabled
