Does SATA Cause a problem ?
Just looking to build a new system and thought I would check first if there are any known problems installing into systems with only SATA drives? I have built systems before and installation was ok using IDE drives but as soon as there is a SATA drive in there, be it a hard drive or DVD Rom I never get past the first screen, always reboots and refuses to install. If I try the same distro (Jas or iATKOS) on a machine with only IDE drives it always installs.
So my question is this. Since I seem to need an IDE port for the hard drive and one for the DVD Rom what motherboard should I be looking at ? Most boards these days only have one IDE port...if any at all. Any suggestions ?
