    Hi could someone please illuminate me on a most perplexing problem. I have
    an 865PE mobo without RAID, just the ICH5. I get pretty good performance
    from my standard ATA drive which I use for booting Windows 2000. I recently
    added a SATA drive as a secondary drive, and the performance of it is
    absolutely horrible. I have checked all the IDE channels in control panel
    and set them to DMA enabled, but it didn't help. Am I missing something
    here? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Not so quick Guest

    Try the SATA by itself without the IDE drive
    attached. I mentioned here, a few weeks, ago
    that someone said that the SATA is slowed
    down by the IDE drives. Another poster said
    that was BS. I was told to put my IDE on an
    external firewire connection. If you can do an
    experiment with just the SATA, post it please.
