Hi evreyone,

What do you mean?

What is the difference between recognising them as SATA and PATA?

I had no problem connecting a Vertex 2 to a P6X58D Premium.

Likewise. I have the same mobo range (P6X58D-E) and it just picks them up as SATA in the BIOS and in Windows, it sees it as a removable drive for some reason... even though it is set as a bootable drive from which it is booting from! I personally am using the 120GB OCZ SSD.

have you tried updating your BIOS, to be on the safe side?

perhaps you need to do some configuration in the BIOS - setting the mode to be from IDE to SATA/AHCI ?
