I have just purchased a 3 Tb Constellation ES2 drive .... Can I use it on my D865GBF motherboard.
Can I use as primary or must I use as slave. Whichever way which SATA port on the motherboard do I use ... SATA 0 or SATA 1
Really hope you can help
depends on the bios of the mb if a new drive of that size will work. sata ports dont have master or slave. you want to conenct your main hard drive to sata 0 the data drive to 1. and your cd-rom to 2. most newer bios look for boot drive to be on sata port 0. if it not then you have to go into the bios under boot manager and set the drive up to be the first boot device.
