Well I went out and got a sabertooth x58 board, It has all Sata no ide and my hard drive with my os has ide and my other hdd's are sata, I went ahead and just reinstalled on a diff hard drive, if I get a adapter how would I go about installing this hard drive.

Also I bought a adapter it says ide to sata, but I guess it's for the motherboard ide not the drive itself, anyone kno how to get this to work if possible?
