Ask ! Get the answer pat August 21, 2005 3:59:15 PM depend on the motherboard/controller you are using. If it has native SATA suport, then if RAID is disabled, the controller will work with the SATA HDD just like any other drive. If it is an onboard solution, then drivers for the controller will be needed. <font color=red>Sig space for rent. make your offer.</font color=red> Can't find your answer ? Ask !
