Will this be the primary dive for a new system or just a second drive on an existing system?

This is a brand new drive in a brand new system. In thepast I have had a problem where the sata drive is identified as a IDE.

Should not be possible; unless of course it's a SATA drive that also has an IDE connection. If you use a SATA cable and plug it into a SATA port, that should be it.

Thank you for your reply. This mb has no ide connectors so I don't expect this to be a problem this time. Thanks again for your time.

He probably has his sata ports set to IDE/legacy instead of AHCI. This can be switched in the bios.
