Simple Question 1

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
How would I turn my samsung 840 512 into a slave drive. The reason I'm doing this because I want my samsung 840 pro 128 to be my main and I don't want to buy a hard drive since I have 2 ssd

So the 512 becomes a storage upon format and since the 128 don't have a OS on it it will be a storage drive?

If you have 2 drives hooked up and you install windows on one the other will just be storage

What ever drive you install your OS on will be your primary drive, anything else installed in the system will be a storage drive [with the exception of dual booting, but that's a different topic]

What everyone else said.

Slave/Master drive settings were for IDE drives where two drives were plugged in via one cable. This is not used with SATA.
