I have a SATA hd having windows XP installed in it. After that i used PATA hd for a while and now i want to use my previous hd..i.e the SATA hd. But when i connect the SATA hd , the system is not recognising the presence of a hd in it. Do I have to make some changes in the BIOS as per the suitability to SATA ?
Also, in future i want to make these 2 harddisks (1. Pata(20 Gb(having both Windows and linux installed in it)) and 2. SATA (120 Gb(having only windows installed in it))) into a master-slave system. Kindly tell me how to go about it and which one should be the master disk ?
Also, I think that it is worth noting that i'm using an AMD Athlon Processor.
Kindly help me out with both the problems.
