    Can you explain the steps you took to install the OS on the SATA drive?

    I have the same MB and have been trying to install a SATA drive as master boot drive for over a month without success. After the Windows cd copies all files to the sata drive and it then reboots to boot to the sata drive it gives a "Read Error" and stops.

    I've tried using the raid drivers on the Chaintech CD, the drivers off the Chaintech website, and others found on the internet.

    Any suggestions?
