Having problems with your HP Compaq d530 PC Desktop ?

ATA HDD on IDE connector with a SATA drive on a SATA connector?

\015 My d530 has the Intel 865G chipset that gave early support for SATA, providing two SATA connectors on the mobo. I want to increase hard drive capacity while keeping the original Maxtor ATA/133 HDD as a primary.So can I leave my Maxtor plugged into it's primary IDE mobo connector and simply plug a new SATA drive into one of the SATA connectors? The Intel 865G chipset only supports speeds up to 150, so a 300 rated drive will have to be slowed to 150 with a jumper to be recognized by XP. Some suppliers advise that drive warranties are voided if you use a jumper to slow it's speed, even when suggested to do so by the manufacturer.Thanks,Mark\015

Answers :

Yes you can do this but rather that buy a sata II hdd just buy a sata hdd. Might even be a little cheaper. Once you install go into the system bios & enable the sata drive. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
