ATA+SATA=love?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys,i'm new to SATA, but for my new rig i bought a 250 gig western digital SATA drive for the speed (wd2500ks). but i also have a 100gig maxtor ultraATA that isn't that old and a very old 60 gig ATA. my asus p5n-e sli has ports for them all.

but when i installed xp it wouldn't install on the SATA unless i unplugged the ATA drives.

eventually i want to put Ubuntu on the 100gig if i can and use the 60 gig for some extra storage, and i'm wondering if i can do that. can you have a SATA and ATA in the same rig and will they talk to eachother?

thanks for the help

They should not "talk" to each other unless you are running RAID. Otherwise, there is no need.

SATA and IDE/PATA should be fine in the same system.
