    Hi folks, well i have been thinking about getting a SATA Hard drive for some time now, to replace the ATA one i am currently using, but i also have a ATA Slave which has alot of my Games and Music installed on it, so my question is, is it possible to have a Master SATA and a Slave ATA? if so are there any known problems which i may frequently come across having such a setup?

    Thanks for the help :)

    Should be fine. IDE master and slave are always seen first, so you will have to adjust the boot priority in order to boot from the SATA but it's simple on the Neo2 :).

    SATA has no master and slave btw. TBH, set the other drive to master IDE if you want.
