I am using a ThinkCentre M51 Motherboard 3.2GHz P4 HT 29R8260 8143-WNP
currently running windows 7 from a Sp2514N-250gb/7200rpm/8m-pata hdd.
The problem is, when I disconnect this hdd and hook up a sata I get "no boot devise", and it doesn't show in the bios.
Feel like i'm just missing some settings, but I need some help.
If windows found and installed your new sata adapter it may not be detected. Try to intall the new sata adapter with it's own install software.
