Can ASUS A7N8X deluxe boot from single SATA drive?

Upgrading my wife's 'puter, currently Windows XP OS(SP3), ASUS A7N8X-X with WD 500G SATA drive in IDE primary master connected thru IDE/SATA adapter. I just bought ASUS A7N8X deluxe in Ebay, I don't have much info on that board. Can the deluxe board be set-up to boot from this SATA drive without any IDE hdd's connected? Thanks in advance for any information.

  1. Eric... Welcome to THGF!!

    Here is the link to your motherboard...

    According to the downloaded manual, the Deluxe model has two SATA ports on the motherboard, so you will not need the IDE/SATA adapter for this board.
