I just got a W.D. Raptor 10.000 rpm sata drive to install my O/S on, and then found out I didn't have a sata plug on my board so i sent for a SATA card and wire, Is there a way to set up my PC to boot from the Raptor Drive? I have Awards bio's The board does support SATA drives.

ABS Awesome 3300
AMD Barton 2600
1280 mgs Ram
XP Home sp-1
- Gigabyte GA-7N400-L nForce2 Ultra400 Dual Channel DDR
- Albatron GeForce FX 5200 128MB DDR DVI/TV-out
- Leadtek "EXPERT" PCI TV/FM Tuner Card with Remote
- Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS 24-bit Plat.Pro. &
Logitech Z-680 5.1 Surround Speaker Set

Thank You

These are the boot Options

Do U think it will add another option when i install it, I will leave XP home on my other drive, in case i can't boot from the Raptor, I have 2 other HD's

It will see it as a SCSI card! Make sure all of your drivers are in order for the card first ;)
So do i set it up to boot from the SCSI or the CDROM?
