Hello, I am trying to replace a failinf IDE drive with a SATA replacement. How do I make it bootable?
Your post is very confusing to read. The board is a Socket A and does not have onboard SATA controllers. If using some sort of third party adapter for a SATA to IDE interface, it could be the driver for the adapter would have to be installed at the F6 prompt when installing Windows. Why not try a PCI SATA controller card.http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=VA-10&fMTYPE=Socket%20A
