GA-MA790X-UD4P and 4 hard disks and one DVD burner

This is my first build with 4 hard drives in one PC. Could you suggest the installation order of the HDs and what do I need to change in the Bios. GA-MA790X-UD4P motherboard and 4 1 TB HDs. I'm planning on using the HDs indepentent from each other.

  1. Are all the hard drives and the optical drive SATA? If so, all you do is plug in the drives and away you go. Just put the main system drive in the SATA2_0 plug and go backwards from there. The hard drives would be in SATA ports 0-3 and the DVD burner would go in one of the other slots. SATA really makes things easy. Just make sure the DVD burner is set as the first boot device in the BIOS before attempting to install the OS.
  2. Thanks shortstuff_mt. It worked! I was pluggin the sata wires in no oder in particular before.
