Yes, you are correct. It is working as boot drive. I have Windows XP and 7 installed both are taking time to load and recognize HDD. My PATA is connected to Marvell IDE port.
My current HDD(got it by RMA) is running as primary master. Is it possible that old HDD drivers(registry) taking time in loading windows and detecting HDD?
So it works as a boot drive? But the PATA doesn't work when the SATA boots?
