    Default Will 80GB IDE Drive work with UD3P??

    I own the GIGA BYTE GA-EP45-UD3P REV 1.0 Motherboard and see that it is suppose to allow [1] IDE drive on the board.

    I have a Maxtor DiamondMax10 80GB IDE hard Drive, will it work with no problems?

    Model is = GL080P0 "Diamond Max 10"
    Capacity is 80 GB
    Says "PATA 133" on the drive.
    Manufacture Date is FEB 2006

    OS = VISTA

    I'm
    currently using a SATA II drive and will want to continue to use the Sata drive as my main boot drive with VISTA.

    THANKS!

    When I install the IDE Hard Drive on IDE is the drive suppose to be setup as a Master or Slave drive?

    And how can I avoid the BIOS deciding the newly installed IDE Drive is the 1st boot device?

    I'm just wanting to use it as a faster way of backing up files and other non-OS files/folders.

    Thanks
    USA Government should required by federal law to issue $2,500 vouchers to every citizen towards the purchase of a new computer system every year. ALSO, vouchers can be sold/traded/bought and combined, and vouchers have no name on them for combining and selling vouchers.
    Can you imagine how many MILLION jobs this would create?

    If you only have one drive connected to ide, just set it as master. If you have 2 then one has to be set as slave. You can customise your boot order in bios menu (sorry forgot which one it was)just move your os drive to the top of the list with +/- key and you'll be fine.

    Boot order is in Advanced BIOS page, Hard Disk Boot Priority at the top
