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.

Eric... Welcome to THGF!!

Here is the link to your motherboard... http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=wAsRYm41KTp78MFC

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.
