I may not have correctly asked the question. The question probably should have been, since the sata controllers are on the board will it detect the DVD and Hard Drives automatically? If this is the case then I probably should not have a problem getting my OS (WindXP) to load. Any thoughts on this??
I would really hate to spend money and time purchasing the equipment and installing it only to find I was not going to be able to load it because I DVD/RW would not spin up. Hope the question now clearer.
