I could use a little advice. Just putting together a new box with the Intel D975XBX2 mobo and have 4 SATA HDD's in the Black sockets and they will be a Raid 10 array. I will be using the Intel Matrix floppy for the F6 drivers with XP Pro.
The question is, this is the first time I have used an SATA DVD-RW drive. All that is left on the mobo for sockets are the 3 Blue ones and the Pink one. The Pink one is listed for use as ESATA use on the back panel and the 3 Blue ones are listed for use with the Marvel Raid.
Which one should I plug the DVD-RW Drive into?
Anyone got any idea?
If I don't get any assistance with this I intend to try it in the Pink socket.
well i see a few people have read this but not much response.
just thought i'd let you knoe the LG LH-20A1L does not work in the Blue ports of the Marvel on this board. i had a bunch of the blue screen of death trying to install XP Pro. ended up using an old IDE drive for the install. i will try to use the SATA optical drive again later once all the windows updates are in.
