IDE to SATA

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?

  1. First thought comes to mind is why you would buy a sabertooth board, with SATA2 and SATA3 on it and then plan to use IDE on it - madness!

    Anyway.. I would suggest getting an IDE external enclosure and use your IDE as a backup / external drive.

    If you really need to install your IDE drive to your motherboard, you need something like this:
