(sorry for the xposting...)\n\nI currently have the following setup:\n- IBM ATA100 30GB as drive 0 / boot disk (primary IDE master)\n- Seagate ATA100 80GB as drive 1 (primary IDE slave)\n- Plextor DVD burner as secondary IDE master\n- Seagate SATA 120GB\n\nhooked off an Asus A7V600 mobo\n\nThe IBM (boot) disk is slowly but surely going south, I'll have to replace\nit in the coming weeks.\n\nCan I replace it with a SATA disk, keeping the existing Seagate ATA100 disk\nand the other SATA disk, and boot off the new SATA disk? (if not I have two\npossibilities IMHO: get rid of the Seagate ATA disk; replace the IBM disk\nwith an ATA disk)\n\nHow? (BIOS settings...)\n\nIf yes, would I be able to boot MS-DOS and/or Win9x with C: on the new SATA\ndisk?\n\nFor more detail: the IBM disk has C: (boot) D: (Windows XP Pro SP2 system\npartition, incl. pagefile) and some data partitions; the Seagate ATA disk\nhas G: (Program Files for XP Pro) and some data partitions. I plan to\nrecreate the partitions that exist on the IBM disk and clone them onto the\nnew disk.\n\nTIA for any help / clues.
