Why is my Seagate 7200.10 SATA II showing as IDE?

I have two of the same hd's installed via SATA and I made sure there were no jumpers on them.

In the BIOS, I made sure that SATA controller was enabled.



Can anyone help me figure out whats going on?

It's likely your board defaults to SATA in IDE mode, rather than AHCI.. Mine also defaults to standard IDE mode, unless I select AHCI in the BIOS, and then install the SATA/RAID/AHCI driver during Vista setup.
