Having bought a Dimension 2310, I added my storage HDD ( 170gig) with a SATA adapter.
Initially, I set the added HDD to slave, but when doing that, eliminated the ability to read the boot drive.
Reading through the forum I found a few replies mentioning that the added HDD is set to MASTER. If that is the case, how does the box know which will be the boot drive?
Also, what are the settings for SATA in the BIOS ( ovbiously, I've only worked with IDE before. It has four setting for SATA. Does that mean that each MB connetion for a SATA drive can actually mount two HDD's like with IDE's?
