    Answer 1) Just plug it in.

    Answer 2) Just plug it in. You can disable the IDE controller in the BIOS at a later time - I suppose it might save a bit of eletricity. What OS are you using? Did you install the OS with the BIOS set to AHCI or IDE-emulation for the disk drives?


  2. using windows 7 rc.I did not touch the bios settings.It's an ECS g43t-m running 32 bit mode.Im pretty new at this so am not even sure what the difference in the two settings you suggested would be
