BlueMage Posted January 4, 2007 Report Share Posted January 4, 2007 Well, I think my main hard drive in my desktop died. She's been going for about 4 years so I guess she's allowed to by now, but still preferably NOT while I'm using it Anyways, I'm reasonably confident that the slave drive (another 40GB one) is still functional. I currently don't have a 3.5 caddy, though I intend to pick one up today if possible. I'm not sure if it's just the Windows install that's fucked up - it won't boot, either from hard drive or from CD, failing at random points (some times it'll get halfway on the graphical indicator, sometimes a third, sometimes not past 0) - but if it is, I intend to save what data I can. However, I'm thinking of upgrading to a SATA drive - both of these drives are PATA. My mobo can handle SATA so that's not a problem. The only thing I want to know is are there any issues with running SATA drives and PATA drives concurrently in one rig? Any help much appreciated.
