I'm new to the site and am having a problem I was hoping someone could help me with. I just got a new system and it came with a via mobo and a maxtor hdd with the regular old ide ribbon cable style. I bought a new samsung sata hdd, which I would like to get installed and then ghost the system onto the new drive and use the maxtor in an older machine, anywho, I installed the drive, but the boot screen gives and error reguarding the raid array and that it is a scsi drive. I'm totally unfamiliar with sata, so I need some baby steps to take here. If I go into cmos, it does not recognize the drive in the ide listings, but in another area of cmos used to set drive priority, the drive is there. When I load into xp, the drivers are installed and device manager tells me the drive is working properly, but there is no drive letter for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
